What a superb welcome! Fiona met us at the door and was so welcoming. She helped us carry our cases up to our room.
We enjoyed a tasty supper with wine.
The room was comfortable with a nice view.
We had a late breakfast and left knowing we would return next time we're in Cairnryan.

Thank Malcolm E

We were staying next door, popped in for dinner. We were given a warm welcome and made feel at home. Food is lovely, duck pate is great and the haddock and chips is proper homemade fare. Would happily go back and recommend to anyone

Stayed overnight in the Cairn (adjacent) awaiting the ferry next day. Had our evening meal and breakfast at The Merchants House and found the food was to a very high standard, obviously home cooked, and very reasonable priced. Our hosts were genial and very helpful. We will return to The Merchants/Cairn on our next visit to Ireland.
