Clean and convenient place to stay whilst seeing the local area. Owners helpful and flexible. Rooms very good standard as was the breakfast. Would recommend. Visit all the surrounding areas as it's a really beautiful place. All amenities very close by.

I stayed 3 nights and would highly recommend. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Close to Carrickfergus castle, restaurants and only 15 mins from Belfast by car. On the bus route is also very handy. A great B&B.!!

By far the most accommodating B&B we've stayed in. Visited Carrickfergus after many years and this place was affordable and the hosts were very warm and welcoming. Just made us feel at home and met our dietary requirements without a bother. They've also taken much of their time to chat and catch me up on what's been happening in the...

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...
