We stopped for lunch here before visiting Dunluce Castle; which is right outside. Lovely homely feel with all sorts of curiosities around the place. We had the Irish stew (which was really tasty), a cheese and ham toastie (£7) and a child's sandwich. That, with two drinks cost £21. But, for the location we couldn't complain. The toastie was extremely... More

The "lady" who runs this cafe is one of the rudest people I've ever come across! She shouts at staff & customers alike, unless you're part of a bus load of tourists, she doesn't want your custom. Basil Fawlty without the comedy!!! Don't waste your money in here, travel a couple of miles down the road to Bushmills for some... More

A modest local place, we had lunch here. The Irish Stew was all mushy potatoes and carrots, virtually meatless. The breads and scones were, however, wonderful. Sandwiches looked good but can't attest to them.

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
