My husband and I just returned from a two-week vacation to England and Ireland. After flying into Dublin, we drove north to begin our jaunt around the country. We wanted to find a place that would give us access to Belfast and the northern coast (Giant's Causeway), but that would also give us a picturesque, rural location. Ballynester House did exactly that. It overlooks a beautiful lough - be prepared to spend a bit of time getting there from Belfast. But Rosemary offered us a very neat and tidy room filled with snacks and tea/coffee. Her breakfast the next morning was delicious, plentiful and featured her own wonderful homemade granary bread. We enjoyed our time at Ballynester and wished that we had time to drive on down to Portaferry. We did find it convenient for our next day's journey to Giant's Causeway and places in the north.
