Reviewed September 9, 2012

This was one of the nicest cottages I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. Immaculately clean, well presented and with everything you could hope for included. Lovely, friendly owners who seem to genuinely care about their customers and who couldn't have been more helpful. I took my mother here as a base for visiting the area for her 70th birthday and it was a real home from home. I would return in a minute and highly recommend the cottages to anyone thinking of visiting the area.

We are a family of 5 who were making a brief visit to Belfast for visas and chose Good Cottages bacause of the excellent ratings on tripadvisor. Elaine greeted us and made us feel very welcome, and gave us a ton of useful local information. The cottage was immaculate, its a lovely peacful setting, everything was perfect, we are sorry we couldn't stay longer! Only 20 minutes into Belfast, 5 minutes from all the local services in Moira, and easy access to the stunning north coast. Would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone and would make it first choice next time we visit the area.

Spent a week in one of the cottages with my husband and three young children and had a great experience. Location suited us as we were able to visit both Belfast and the north coast without a huge amount of driving. The cottage itself was very good. The room sizes were great and all the fittings etc. were of a very high standard. Elaine and Wesley were also very friendly and approachable. Thoroughly enjoyed staying in the cottages and would recommend them to anyone!!

We visited the area for a family wedding,and were recommended Good Cottages by the groom.As there were ten of us in total,including children,this fitted the bill perfectly.On arrival, Elaine greeted all of us, and whilst still unpacking,brought tea,milk and biscuits round, as she appreciated that was what was required after our journey.
The cottages,are well furnished,clean and spacious.All bedrooms have large en suites.
A very good base for touring in this part of Ireland,or, as in our case,a couple of nights,visiting family.
Elaine came round the first morning,to ensure that there were no problems.
No hesitation recommending Good Cottages. Excellent all round, with many thanks again to Elaine.

Room Tip: All cottages are good,with grassed area,and outdoor seating.

I have recently returned from a weeks family holiday in the good cottages. We were thrilled to bits with our stay. The accomodation was clean, spacious and comfortable. Elaine and Wesley were so friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The location was ideal in a central spot and we would love to return again. All in all a fantastic stay, couldnt reccomend the good cottages highly enough!
