A really great welcome to the cleanest and most comfortable overnight stay. Margaret was so kind and looked after me so well. Everything in the room was immaculate. I had no difficulty in the morning and comfortably made the 7.30 ferry.

My wife and I have stayed in many guest houses and none come anywhere near the Homestead. Nothing beats the fantastic breakfast you get in the morning after your great nights sleep in one of the well-appointed rooms. Margaret is the best host and always has time to chat over breakfast. Saying the Homestead is perfect doesn't do it justice.... More

Stayed for 5 nights would not recommend any longer than a couple of nights! The landlady Margaret was very helpful and friendly but wanted to know where you had been everyday and where you were going the next!! She told us we could only have a bath around 5 pm because of the water going cold. We were asked by... More

After arriving late off the ferry we were thrilled to see they had a vacancy. Margaret had actually seen us pass by earlier on our bicycles, at that point we were still intending to camp. The room we were given was the smaller one (Room 1) but everything was perfect and it was spotless. The shower is great and you... More

Recently stayed one night prior to crossing by ferry to Larne in Northern Ireland. The guest house is opposite the entry road for the ferry (very convenient)and has a private car park. The room was quite large, clean and had comfortable bed. There was a small shop next door which was handy (The only shop in Cairnryan). The owner, Margaret... More

Price was fair and room was nice. Bed was comfy and breakfast was good. Owner was very helpful and pleasant. Recommend this B&B. Would stay again if we are in the area. Very convenient to the ferry and not far to find something to eat.

We were a group of 6 (3 couples) and we stayed at the B&B after getting off of the Ferry quite late. Margaret was very welcoming. We had the room with the twin beds. They were very comfortable with nice bedding. The next morning Margaret made us a hearty Scottish Breakfast and Peter drove 3 of the group to the... More

We were a party of 8 adults, and we spent the night of the 20th August 2015 at the Homestead before catching the ferry to Ireland the next day. It was agreed by all that we would have been hard pushed to find accommodation of a higher standard. Margaret and Peter made us feel very welcome, the rooms were well... More

This is the third time we have stayed at the Homestead and it has become a part of our ritual when we are on a pilgrimage to Northern Ireland. You couldn't come across a more friendly and helpful couple that Margaret and Peter the owners. We have enjoyed having a chat with them each time we arrive and their breakfast... More
