We spent one night here on our tour of Northern Ireland. It had parking right in front of the house, but could be difficult if you get there late in the day. The room was nice, nothing fancy, and very clean. The bathroom was standard size. We had a small refrigerator in our room with complementary water. The breakfast was a full Irish breakfast and was very good. We were able to walk to the castle and around the town. And there were plenty of good restaurants within walking distance.

Hi OCgirl2612
Thank you very much for your review of your stay.We try to give our Guests the facilities such as a fridge & complimentary Tea/Coffe. free Wifi in every room, to help them enjoy their stay to the full.

We are very lucky to have Award Winning Restaurants and Pubs right on our doorstep so you can leave the car behind and relax and enjoy the delights Carrickfergus has to offer.

We normally don't have any problem with parking as Guests can park on either side of the cul de sac, sorry you seemed to have had some difficulty, perhaps there was a large funeral on that day. We hope you will visit us again in the future.

We stayed at the Keep on our trip through Northern Ireland. The room we stayed in was wonderful. Large and decorated with great care.the hosts were so kind and even helped with some tire trouble with our rental car, taking us to a nearby station and fixing the tire pressure. We would definitely stay here again.

We (group of four friends) stayed in the family room upstairs. Great views to the waterfront, four comfortable beds, lots of space.

Heather was very helpful and offered great restaurant suggests and also called our taxi driver for a tour in Belfast the next day.

The location is great if you’re looking to walk to the castle/local parks. Parking is very convenient at the Keep (even for those of us used to driving on the right side of the road).

Breakfast was amazing. Quintessential Irish Fare!

Highly recommend!

Somethings it just takes a little thought to make our Guests stay so rewarding. We hope you enjoyed the Tour and you are enjoying the rest of your trip.
