what a lovely spot, like having a cuppa at your granny's, sitting on a settee having a lovely latte and a scone, really nice and so comfortable, we didn't want to go! perfect after a windy walk around Dunluce Castle across the road.

Our driver / guide brought us here for lunch while touring out of Belfast to the Giants Causeway and Antrim coast. Just across the road from the ruins of Dunluce Castle. The place was packed! We had 6 vans in our group, and they did a nice job of staggering our arrivals so we did not overwhelm the kitchen. Very... More

I was lucky enough to have lunch here while on a private Game of Thrones tour. The hosts were delightful and the food simple but delicious. A must have is the scones. Artfully presented and delicious. As a bonus, there is a castle just beyond the grounds of the cottage.

What a marvelous little tearoom where you least expected it! After a tour of Dunluce Castle on a windy day, we were so happy to stop in here for tea. The scones (with strawberries and cream) were fresh from the oven and heavenly! The fireplace was going strong, and we had a great chat with the owner. You'll want to... More

Always enjoy a stop at The Wee Cottage as we visit Dunluce Castle -- they are located right in the parking area. They offer a cozy spot for a hot tea and scones or carrot cake --

Excellent place for something to eat, whether it is for a main meal or a light snack. Everything is homemade and the portions are very generous! Definitely going back, I loved it as did my wife and our 2 friends. Staff were so helpful and kind! Their HOMEMADE SCONES ARE TO DIE FOR!

It seems like they have squeezes chairs into every square inch of this cottage, yet don't have the staff or facilities to keep every table functioning. We arrived in a half empty cafe, to be thrown dirty looks from the owner, because we had just went and sat at a table which wasn't cleared (this was despite there being no... More

The Wee Cottage has the very best home-baked scones and a friendly staff. However, while we were there having our scones, several people came to the door from the carpark looking for toilets and rubbish bins. It seems that Dunluce Castle which is a major public attraction for Northern Ireland, does provide public facilities for visitors but they'd like you... More
