Lovely room in tranquil spot with views of forest. Quiet street with parking. Comfy bed. Very friendly and informative owners. We Would never have found hidden gems on the coast without their advice. Excellent large breakfast. Would stay again.

We stayed here at the weekend, the rooms were clean, and the decore was really nice! The bed was really comfy, and the bathroom facilities were great! The breakfast in the morning was spot on, Jennifer even asked us the night before what we would like so she could have it ready for us! She sent us on our way with a piece of fruit, which is a lovely thought!

This is a lovely modern B & B about a 10 minute walk from center of Ballycastle. Rooms were very spacious with a good sized bathroom. There's a sunroom off the back where Jennifer will serve you tea and muffins when you arrive. We had missed lunch so it hit the spot! Her suggestion of dinner at The Diamond Restaurant was perfect (will review that under restaurants.) After dinner we found some trad music at another restaurant called O'Donaughs, I think.
A couple negs: Power shower was strange. It's controlled by string outside of shower, right next to string that turns light on. I couldn't figure out why shower wouldn't turn on. I had apparently turned it off when I turned light on! Instructions on wall would have been helpful. A hair dryer would have been much appreciated.

Dear friends were getting married in Northern Ireland, on the same weekend as the Northwestern Moto Race! Of course, we left it till late to book, and that resulted in a nightmare of a search. All the places were either booked or offering exuberant prices! We got so Lucky with Jennifer as she had a fantastic standard of rooms, a delicious Irish fry and even helped us get ready for the wedding. "Why wasn't she already booked?" you might ask. We did to, so went into it apprehensively. Well, she doesn't just book to anyone. The people here are friendly respectful and quiet. We were so pleased to have a good room, a good breakfast, and be around good people. Top marks all around. Could be we were pleasantly surprised, or could be based on the comparable offers in the area, but we give it full marks. It's not the Four Seasons, or the Ritz, but that's not what we expected so we can't compare it to that. But when Jennifer bent over backwards to help us with getting ready I'd say that puts this place in the "will return" column.

Visited Ballycastle last weekend for the Maritime Festival. We stayed in room 5 in Jennifer's wonderful B & B. Such friendly and accommodating atmosphere, like staying at your aunties. It is approximately a 10 minute walk into town if you turn right when you leave, but if you turn left and left again it is a shorter walk. Really comfy bed too and Would definitely stay again.

Best i have ever visited, just couldn,t do enough for us. We stayed for 4 nights and also stayed last year. Definetaly stay again next year. The rooms are very tidy and cleaned every day, Jennifer did all our ironing for us. When we went out on return Joe or Jenny would make us a brew and bring cakes in.

We spent 2 nights with Jen and Joe at their lovely home in Ballycastle. It is located well for exploring the Antrim Coast. It is also just a 10 minute walk into town for dining and such. The White room was spacious and comfy with a small sofa and vanity. The shower pressure was good. Breakfasts were cooked to order and delicious. But it was Jen and Joe who made this a special place. They were friendly and helpful. Joe never let us leave for the day without a piece of fruit for a snack. I would definitely return and recommend it to friends
