“Fabulous Irish hospitality”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We stayed at this homely B & B for 2 nights and had a lovely time. Irene was very friendly and helpful. The full fry for breakfast was perfect and the location was also good. A short walk into the town and down to the beach. We would definitely recommend the accommodation and the area.

Brilliant hostess (Irene) running the B and B. set a little out of town, in nice quiet area. The room was homely and plenty of space. breakfast was fab. Felt like a home away from home, was even offered a cuppa tea as soon as we got there. Irene couldn't have been more helpful. Organised a taxi to a restaurant for dinner and recommended venues to go for some love music. Great stay we shall be back

My girlfriend and I stayed here while we were in ballycastle and we loved it, the business is a five minute walk from the main street and is out of the hustle and bustle of the surprisingly busy little town. As all the reviews say is immaculate and very good value, Irene is a character and her full Irish fry's are perfect. I was happy to find there was free WiFi and was able to get my internet fix while we stayed.
I will definitely recommend this b&b to my friends and family and would recommend it to anyone reading this too. We will be back.

Room Tip: family room is available and beautiful!!

This was our first visit to NI and chose to make Ballycastle our centre for exploring NI. In retrospect we couldn't have made a better choice both for a centre and for the stay at Glen Haven which we chose because it is on the outskirts of Ballycastle. We spent 7 nights at Glen Haven and regretted leaving. The hospitality was first class, being both very friendly and happy to cater for individual needs. The breakfasts were excellent both in quality and quantity and provided at a time set by us (on our last day we needed b/fast at 7 am). Our visit to NI has been a memorable experience not least due to Glen Haven's friendly atmosphere with chatting to other guests at b/fast time.

A last minute decision to race at the Armoy road races mean't I had very little time to find a place to stay, but Irene went out of her way to accommodate me. Just down the road from the circuit [and a stones throw from the coast and all those fabulous tourist places such as Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-rede rope bridge or the North West 200 road races for that matter] it was the perfect spot. Irene welcomed me in with tea and biscuits. The exceptionally clean and comfy bedroom complete with ensuite was the perfect treat after a day's competing. And the homemade breakfast was the perfect start to my day of racing. I'll be staying again, and again! Maria Costello MBE

We were on the way to the Giant's Causeway and booked this B&B via the tourist information centre in Belfast. We arrived at half past nine in the evening, 30 minutes later than we expected because it took us longer to find the B&B as we were not yet familiar with driving in Ireland. We were warmly welcomed by Irene, who realised that we probably had not yet eaten and made us toast and tea. The house is nicely located in a tranquill area with beautiful environment. Visitors who wish to walk to the town centre may find it a bit far away but it was not a problem for us as we just needed a place to stay for a night before heading off to the Giant's Causeway. The next morning we were served with tasteful homemade breakfast by Irene. Hearty B&B experience!

My 13 year old son and me spent two days in Irene's Glenhaven. We really found it a place to come home to after our trips in the area. A clean and well maintained bedroom with two beds, an ensuite and television, a very good breakfast, and last but not least a very friendly and hospitable owner. Don't let Irene's frail posture fool you though because she has a black belt in Karate :)
Seriously, if I ever go back to Northern Ireland i will definitely stop over at Glenhaven.
