We arrived and were warmly welcomed by Fionna at the door. Their home is lovely and the accomodations were perfect. We awoke early to catch the ferry and at the door was a lovely packed lunch and a cute note. Would highly recommend it.

Yes, of course. The Stena terminal for ferries to Belfast is 1mile to the north of us and P&O terminal for ferries to Larne is only 1/2 mile to the south of us. There are pavements all the way to both terminals... More
