If you are visiting Portpatrick, I recommend you stay at Muirhead Guest House. Great location. Spotlessly clean. Breakfast is delicious. Keith, the host is so friendly and welcoming. This is our seventh visit and we are never disappointed.

An excellent B&B that I would highly recommend. Clean, fresh, bright and Keith who runs it couldn't be any nicer or helpful. He makes a mean breakfast too. This is a B&B we've used for 7 years and we'll continue to go back.

Stayed for two nights last weekend, couldn't fault Muirheads, Keith made us very welcome, the room was spacious and spotless as was the en-suite. Breakfast? Well we'd stayed in an upmarket hotel a week or two previously and the breakfast Keith serves was head and shoulders above that! We'll definitely be back.

The en suite shower room had gel and shampoo dispensers in the large shower with plenty of hot water. The bed was comfortable with fresh linen.There was a lovely airy... More

We are on a family holiday and have booked two rooms, both which are excellently appointed, neat, tidy and very clean. The room which we stayed in overlooked... More

Muirhead Guesthouse is a well run, beautifully furnished guesthouse in which it was a pleasure to spend the night. Keith was a lovely host and pointed us in the right direction to one of many pubs on the seafront where we could get a meal that night. Everything was in walking distance and the little town of Portpatrick is a... More

So glad to have found The Muirhead. Keith is obviously passionate about his business and The Muirhead is a credit to him. The attention to detail and cleanliness is to be commended. We enjoyed his chat and local knowledge and will definitely stay at The Muirhead when next visiting Portpatrick. We would recommend staying here to you all.

We have stayed here before, was made very welcome by Keith, given a beautiful room as before, house was spotless and service excellent. Food was beautiful, a pleasure to stay, we even booked an extra night. Will certainly stay there again most relaxing three days.
