If Belfast is full up then try Carrickfergus. The Keep is near the train station and has a bus stop opposite so very good for transport. Two supermarkets nearby, plus several eateries. My room was lovely and so are the couple who run things. Huge breakfast too.

We were driving from Dublin to Northern Ireland for the weekend. The Keep Guesthouse is perfectly located in the middle of the route, close to Belfast and to start drive further north. It is easy to find, just off the main street in Carrickfergus. The room was very clean and comfortable, delicious Ulster fry and very welcoming housekeeper.

The Keep Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay for anyone coming to visit Northern Ireland for the first time like we did. Quick connection to any direction. Only 15 minute from Belfast city center, i.e. to Titanic Museum, Ikea, Decathlon, and W5 (children high tech science center). Driving from The Keep to the Giant Causeway was an extraordinary experience...

Hi, Thank you very much for your review.

We try our best to give our Guests the best we can without adding to the cost of their stay. I guess we just cant compete with the silence of the countryside...
