We were in town for a wedding and were lucky to get a spot in this wonderful B & B. Everything about this place was perfect from the location (right between the shops and water) to the lovely room to the shower to the delicious full Irish breakfast. The hosts were also friendly and fun. If you're deciding between a...

This was a wonderful place to stay during our honeymoon in Ireland. We were delighted with the large bedroom and sitting area, which would have comfortably slept 4 people, plus the little balcony was a nice surprise. The bathroom was spacious and everything was spotless. The B&B is located a short walk into town or down to the docks. Breakfast...

I'm glad the binoculars were of use. I was on Rathlin today and I keep promising to return soon but never do! So glad the room was to your liking - important on a honeymoon I think. Thank you for your kind feedback. Always a pleasure, Mark and Elizabeth

We stayed at the Old Manse during our wonderful 3 wk trip in Ireland and Scotland. The hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable. The room that we stayed in was on the top floor, and it was great. Beautiful linens and all of the fine touches. Our breakfast was great too! We even forgot something there and they were nice...

Everything was perfect! Beautifull traditional house with nice garden. Our room was spacious as well as the bathroom. It came with the big terrace with the view. Breakfast was excellent, and the owners very kind!

This was our first B&B on our Antrim walk. We had an amazing time in Ballycastle, and Mark and Elizabeth are perfect hosts. They were very helpful, even fixed my seized hiking pole for me. The B&B is conveniently located so that dinner restaurants are only 5 minute walk away. Our room was very comfortable, and the breakfasts were amazing.

The Old Manse oozes traditional character and charm. Our room at the top was beautifully decorated and really comfy. We had family in the larger room with the balcony which was great for getting together for a chat. Breakfast superb. Didn't need anything else to eat all day. Wonderful friendly host too. Well done!
