Only our second full day of driving in Ireland and we could not locate some printed directions we had for The Keep Guest House. Raymond heard our distress over the phone and offered to stand at the intersection to "wave" us in! His red t-shirt was ideal for the task. This was just the first of the kind and hospitable...

We were not planning on ending up in Carrickfergus the night we stayed. We had been on the road for hours due to a detour that led us far off from where we intended to be. In desperate need for a place to stay we called The Keep and not only were they accommodating they also helped navigate us to...

The self-catered Acorn House condo looks out onto a scenic marina. Immaculate, great location, lovely owners, good price. We will recommend it to all our friends. 2bedroom, 2 bath, everything you need to cook and enjoy. 1 block from the best medieval castle on the island.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at The Keep. Ray and Heather are wonderful hosts, the accommodation was very comfortable and the location is ideal for accessing local restaurants, and places of interest. We highly recommend it!

Very nice owners who made us feel at home. Gave us a good idea of what we should see while in town. Rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Good breakfast. Easy walking distance to several local attractions as well as restaurants.

Spent one night here at the beginning of a Northern Ireland holiday. It wasn't the best place we stayed in but the welcome (from Heather) was very warm, the room was fine, clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. We were recommended to eat at 'Ownies' which was a good choice and one which we would not have known...

My husband and I stayed in The Keep Guesthouse for three nights recently and couldn't fault it. We had to find a B&B in a hurry to enable us to visit a sick relative and decided on this one from the reviews. We were not disappointed. The owners, Raymond and Heather, couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly and gave...

We stayed in The Keep Guesthouse for one night last weekend. I was honestly a tiny bit disappointed after reading the reviews here. We drove past it first as the signage is rather inconspicuous. The room itself was lovely, modern, clean and big enough. I loved the sky light however the view was not so pretty. I admit I assumed...
