“We'll be back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Stayed in J&Js last weekend looking to wind down after my daughter's wedding and could not have picked a better place. Room and bathroom were spotless and the bedroom was warm and comfortable and had everything anyone could need. Both Joe and Jennifer were excellent hosts and ensured we had everything we needed, Joe offering a lift into town when we were going out to eat, and Jennifer providing a late breakfast obviously knowing I needed a lie in! Breakfast itself was fantastic with plently of variety and home cooking. Highly recommended - we will definately be back!

We stayed here for three nights in October 2012. It's a great base for walking or driving round the Northern Irish coast with lots of local landmarks like the Giant's Causeway and Dunluce Castle. Jennifer and Joe were warm and welcoming and very knowledgeable about the local area. The room was beautifully and tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed and spotless ensuite. The breakfasts were generous and very tasty. All in all we had a lovely time there and would certainly stay there again.

4 of travelled from Campbeltown for a weekend stay in Ballycastle. We arrived mid morning and telephoned to see if we could just drop off our bags, not expecting to get in to our rooms until later in the day. Jennifer at J and Js was very kind, she came in her car and met us as we started walking to her house. She also let us in our rooms, gave great advice about eating out and even drove us in to town in the evening. Nothing was too much trouble, from arranging taxis and finding out prices/times etc for us. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the morning and were sad not to be staying longer as everything was perfect! Thanks again Jennifer and Joe, we hope to return for longer next time.

Jennifer was a great host providing all the information we wanted on area sites, restaurants and pubs. She even gave us a ride to dinner. Its located within walking distance of the downtown area and the coast. The accommodations were just what we needed and very clean. An excellent full Irish breakfast topped off the stay.

This B&B was really nice. The decor in the room was lovely, black and white themed. The host were very attentative without being too in your face and getting in the way. They gave us lots of advice on what to do and where to eat and gave us lots of options for breakfast which was really tasty! It's in a great location, just ten minutes walk from town and across the road there's a great area to walk in with a beautiful view over the sea. I would stay here again and I would definitely recommend it to anyone else staying in the area.
