Reviewed August 29, 2013

We couldn't have picked a more welcoming and beautiful place to stay. The cottage had everything we needed for a week and it was done to a really high standard, there was even a little welcome basket when we arrived. This came in really handy as we arrived quite late at night! It was really well placed for our needs and the views from the cottage were amazing. At the end of our stay we really didn't want to come home. Stacey and Jamie couldn't have made us more welcome at the cottages.

Stayed for 4 nights early August while attending my brother's wedding at nearby Breckenhill.
The cottages are lovely. Very well designed and they are extremely spacious!
Stacey gave us a warm welcome and the little basket provided (tea/coffee/bread, etc) was a fantastic touch.
It is so peaceful here, you don't even realise there are other guests! There is a communal area with wifi (signal is non-existent) and information about the surrounding area, also, board games. Connect 4 came in handy one very wet afternoon before the wedding! Our last 2 days were sunny enough to sit out in the little terrace (bbq) area, which was nice.
The only thing I would recommend is that you bring or hire a car. We were lucky to have family to collect us in their car but without that we would have been reliant on taxis as the road to the town is too dangerous to walk.
Would certainly return and will hire a car next time.
Highly recommend Dunamoy Cottages and thanks to the lovely friendly owners for an enjoyable stay!

We booked Dunamoy cottages on short notice as our original holiday plans had fallen thru. It was the best thing that could have happened. These cottages are beautifully fitted out making the most of the space available. So wonderfully quiet, we could have thought we were the only guests.(All the rooms were fully let) Stacey and Jamie and the girls are wonderful hosts, even inviting us to a local day at a nearby farm, where we enjoyed fly fishing, climbing walls, football and archery targets, live music and hot air ballooning. All within 5 Minutes of Dunamoy. They are building a spa at Dunamoy and we look forward to returning and enjoying more of the relaxing!

We recently had the pleasure of staying at Dunamoy Cottages and completely fell in love with the place, so much so, we were fortunate enough to be able to extend our stay. Stacey, Jamie and family are the perfect hosts offering the warmest of welcomes throughout our entire stay. The stunning surroundings and views are truly breathtaking. The accommodation was spotless, catering for our every need, every consideration has been given to furnishing the cottages. Onsite laundry facilities are also available which proved most helpful.
The location is perfect, Ballyclare is a great little town for shopping and local produce and 20 minutes by car has you in the centre of Belfast.
We will most definately be returning to Dunamoy Cottages as soon as we possibly can.

The accommodation was the nicest places I have had the pleasure of staying for 3 months. I travel a lot for work places and this accommodation beets any hotel. Not only is the apartments the cleanest but most comfortable I have ever been . The owners are very friendly and even put the heating on before I would arrive there after weekends. The apartments are modern with tv nd wifi double beds , kitchen dining room. These apartments are in the centre if things. Towels and bed linen changed once weekly and apartment was always cleaned for us after the weekend. I would recommend highly staying here . I would go back in a heart beat.

Great Location for Business -
Our team travelled up from Cork to undertake a Project in the area lasting 11 weeks. Stacey and Jamie at Dunamoy cottages made the accommodation solution easy. The cottages were well finished, clean, well serviced, and had everything we needed after a hard day. Our cars and vans were safe parked on site. It is definitely a relaxing option, in the countryside while access to Belfast, Ballyclare , Ballymena and Carrickfergus was problem free. I have now promised my wife I will bring her along with our kids to Dunamoy in the summer and tour the Glens. Thanks again to Stacey,Jamie and the staff at Dunamoy for being so hospitable.

This was our firsy trip to Dunamoy and we will definetly be booking again. Stacey and Jamie go out of their way to help and they made myself and my family feel very welcome. The cottage itself was immaculate and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The cottage was very clean and warm; that was needed given the amount of snow around and the cold temperatures. Shops are just a short drive into Ballyclare so no trouble getting in the supplies when we arrived. Having said that, Stacey and Jamie had provided a lovely welcome pack that had everything we needed for the first night without having to go shopping for the essentials. All in all it was a very enjoyable stay and we would recommend it to anyone either visiting relatives as we were or just looking to get away to a lovely place in the country.
