Joe Charlie's Cottage is exactly how you see it in the pictures, a small cottage in the backyard of a hostel. It's located right by the sea in Ballycastle so you walk 2 minutes to the beach, to the shop or a coffee shop. The cottage is very basic but has everything you need and Anne Marie is just a fantastic host who will make your stay even more pleasureable. I was there with my 10 months old baby. She loved the cottage and accepted it as her home as soon as we arrived. Absolutely would come back and recommend to anyone who wants to visit Ballycastle.
Ballycastle is a great location and the cottage is so easy and convenient for the beach and for getting out along the coast. The ferry to Rathlin Island is just over the road [highly recommend a trip over!]
We loved the wood burning stove in the cottage and comfy beds.
One thing I would have liked would have been a view of the sea from the cottage... (alas not something you can do anything about, Ann-Marie :-))
my family and i stayed in joe charlies cottage for the lammas fair week and it was wonderful. its clean comfortable and anne marie was the perfect host. it has a gorgeous old fashioned traditional charm with all modern facilities. i would happily recommend to anyone and i would definitely stay again . also its very safe for young children as the outside gates are always kept locked so the children could play in the courtyard safely. thank you for a wonderful stay x
