I go to the wee Cottage when ever I can. I love the homely feeling of the place. The open fire and mostly the scones. It would have to be the best place for a scone and a proper cup of tea and fantastic friendly welcoming service. So if your passing either on your way to The Giants Causeway or... More

Our group of 6 friend took a private tour from Belfast to the Giants' Causeway, and our guide Alister Cheyne took us to the Wee Cottage for lunch. It is a very cute, family owned and operated restaurant that features wonderful soups, sandwiches and cream tea. The owner personally helps prepare the meals, and the atmosphere is friendly and informal.... More

We got a scone cut in half with jam, strawberries and cream on it for 4 euros. It was very tasty but the scone without the topping was a little dry. The place is cozy and right in front of the castle.

We popped in for some tea and cake and had a lovely time relaxing on the comfy sofa. It was excellent value for money and I'd recommend it.

After visiting Dunluce Castle in the rain and cold the Wee Cottage was a welcome respite. Warm and cosy with the fire crackling. And the yummiest scones I've ever had.

This little tea room is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a cream tea or choose from other mouthwatering cakes. It is under threat due to plans to build a visitor centre car park etc for Dunluce Castle. The plans can be viewed nearby and clearly show that it would be possible to leave the tea room as it...

While on a tour to Giant's Causeway, we stopped here for lunch. It was cold and the rain had just started. It was so nice to enter this lovely little restaurant. It was so homey and welcoming, with a warm fire going and cheerful decorations all around. The service was quite special. The waitress/owner was such a pleasure. Just too... More

Your won't regret stopping at the Wee Cottage for tea and a scone while you're at Dunluce Castle. A few things to know about the Wee Cottage: They have no phone, email or facebook (you can't make a reservation) It's cash ONLY Possibly the best scone I've ever had
