Reviewed August 30, 2014

We usually stay at hotels or self cater but took the option of Rest A While on a short trip to Northern Ireland. What a pleasant experience - our host Gail was charming and friendly and the property super.Room had all we needed and ensuite was spacious and spic and span. Breakfast was the best we had all week and that includes a 4/5 star hotel. Gail really goes out of her way to help you get the most out of your visit. I would highly recommend her place and would return in a flash.

We stayed just for two nights on a roadtrip through the island and found this beautiful b&b by luck. The room was much bigger than we expected and clean. The bathroom looked recently renovated. The hosts gave us a warm welcome and made a typical irish breakfast. I can heartfully recommand this B&B.

This is a charming little place just off the beaten track, although really easy to get to (there's a brown tourist sign on the main road from Bushmills to the Giants Causeway)
Gail is fantastic, serving up a lovely breakfast. She also provided a lot of good advice on where to eat in the evening, and a code for the Bushmills distillery to get a free tot of whiskey!
A lovely spacious room, and Gail even brought us a cup of tea when we arrived!!!

If you are visiting the many attractions on the North Antrim coast, this is a great B&B. It's just so handy...you can get everywhere quickly and easily. The owner (Gail) is lovely and really friendly (without being intrusive). You will feel at home immediately and nothing is too much trouble. We arrived in the early evening to a lovely warm bedroom - nicely decorated and very clean and spacious. Great breakfast in the morning and lots of useful local information (including great restaurant recommendations) provided in our room. Hope to visit again on our next trip to the area. Thank you Gail.

This B&B is fantastic and in a quiet location about 5 minutes drive from Bushmills. Friendly and welcoming host. The rooms are amazing, comfortable and well furnished. Excellent breakfast. A bonus is bike hire on site. Well placed for exploring the Antrim Coast

After a long drive we were looking for a B&B in Bushvilles and could only see those along the main road in the middle of trafic. We decided to look further and were rewarded by finding this cozy place in the middle of the country side but still very close to town. It has an enchanting view and it is very quiet. The hostess is very friendly and makes sur the customers are well taken care of. The room was spotlessly clean and fairly modern. Also the bathroom is modern although a couple of shelves would help the traveller to keep toiletry in order.
Breakfast was so abundant that we could not finish it.
Altogether a very good choice.
