Our room we very comfortable and we loved our hosts, Ken and Mary. They were so kind and helpful - we were only there for one night, but I would have loved to stay longer. I highly recommend staying at Ken-Mar when in Ballymoney!

Our hosts, Ken and Mary, are fabulous people and if you like humour in general, you will appreciate Ken's high sense of "Irish humour" and generosity. Breakfast is a memorable moment as guests are treated like VIPs and Mary's operating in the kitchen offers the best that can be found at home. Will definitely go back there to carry on...

Decided to book the Annexe as we were going to be in and out seeing old friends. What a great choice we made. Own front door didn't have to worry about getting in late and disturbing other guests. Accommodation was perfect, own kitchen, shower room, and very large bedroom. Everything was spotless and good quality. Really grateful for the extras...

We have stayed here many times and absolutely love it. You can't fault the quality of the rooms and the welcome from Kenny and Mary. The Breakfast is always very fresh and tasty with plenty of choice. The rooms are spotlessly clean. We will go back again.
