Excellent house, very welcoming owner and tasty breakfasts. In this Victorian-style house it seems that you've gone back in time, still there are modern facilities like WiFi and TV. Loved every minute we spent there.

My aunt and myself stayed at The Old Manse this week after having to make a last minute booking . Marilyn and Bill , the owners , couldn't do enough to accommodate us . We have stayed here before and would recommend it to anyone . The house itself is beautiful and both our bathroom and bedroom was simply stunning.... More

Our family had a wonderful stay. The rooms were decorated in antique surroundings and beautiful white coverlets. We had to leave early to catch the ferry so we missed breakfast but instead Marilyn (owner) sent us off with a "huge" picnic basket. It's a short walk to downtown where we ate at the Custom House which was a great restaurant.... More

My friend and I stayed here lastnight; The old Manse is a lovely, it's a very old house with amazing features - we were greeted on arrival with a warm welcome and shown to our lovely spacious room! The bathroom was just down the hall rather than en-suite but what a stunning bathroom it was. The beds were very comfy... More

This was the best bed and breakfast experience I can remember. The four of us arrived late because of heavy traffic driving up from the south of England. The owners were so accommodating about our arrival time and kept reassuring us that however late our arrival became it would be fine. We got in after 11 and were greeted warmly... More

Visiting here for a night as we see our family in Stranrear. The beds are very comfortable, the house is absolutely beautiful and the breakfast is not only sizeable but very delicious! Marilyn, the owner, is also lovely and nothing is too much trouble! Fantastic place and I'm sure we will be back soon :)

We stayed here for the night before catching the ferry to Belfast en route to Donegal. It was altogether very comfortable. The house has been interestingly furnished in a style that reflects its origins as a Victorian manse. Our large bedroom and bathroom were quite magnificent. The breakfast table was splendid with very generous amounts of fresh fruit, home-baked bread,... More
