We've stayed here twice and hope to return. It's a lovely place - a three-bedroom house with 2 bathrooms, a dining kitchen and living room and full amenities, including BBQ facilitie & spare buggy for toddlers. Best of all is the lovely woodland area and stream in the garden! It's located up a winding road and beautifully remote (we ordered... More

Joe and Mary are lovely people who spoiled us with delicious scones and eggs upon our arrival. The cottage is very well kitted out and was warm upon our arrival on a chilly day. Views out over the sea and countryside were stunning and their art on the walls is gorgeous! Thank you for making us so welcome!

We were so sorry to leave this peaceful place. Mary and Joe were wonderful and we received the warmest of welcomes. The basket of goodies left for us was wonderful homemade jam, fresh scones and freshly laid eggs.. Superb scenery , wonderful views and delightful hosts who could ask for more!

I would echo all the positive comments already made about Drumkeerin. We are just back and I miss the place already. Amazing views, great location, delightful hosts Mary and Joe. Our kids are 4 and 6 and I would really recommend Drumkeerin for a family with young children. Ours loved all the lambs in the fields surrounding and of course... More

My family (three teenagers) enjoyed a lovely, peaceful stay in the Barnhouse, Joe and Mary's self-catering cottage, for a week in late July. Joe and Mary couldn't have been better hosts. Mary had homemade scones and jam and a basket of fresh eggs waiting for us, and Joe had a fist full of honeysuckle from their lovely garden. They are... More

Wow, we were lucky enough to stay with Mary and Joe for three nights. They would have to be the nicest owners of a B&B in Ireland. Unfortunately they are not taking bookings for their B&B anymore but they are offering self catering accommodation in their Drumkerrin Lodge and that's where we spent our three nights. The Lodge is very... More

For exploring the Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland, I can't think of a better place to stay than this great b&b overlooking the coastal town of Cushendun. Mary and Joe McFadden are delightful hosts who are eager to help you enjoy their part of the world. (and Mary's scones and homemade black currant jam are dynamite!) Also, their lovely home... More

Mary and Joe are the perfect hosts, friendly and helpful. Their house is filled with their own excellent artworks. Breakfasts are award winning, don't miss the fluffy scones or butteryscrambled eggs with local smoked salmon.

We have just come back from a wonderful holiday along Northern Ireland's Antrim Coast - the coastline is amazing, the people friendy, and the weather surprisngly beautifully sunny. One of the places we stayed at was Drumkeerin. Although there is a steep hill to the B&B it provides lovely views of Cushendun. Mary and Joe are true B&B hosts -... More
