This place is brilliant, we arrived and the ladies who run it are lovely, helpful too, showed us round our ground floor room. It is very dated but perfectly functional. Listening to the cows late at night was nice, felt relaxed. They recommended an early dinner at the Smugglers Inn a few minutes drive away (since it gets really very...

We had walked 14 miles not including clamoring over the rocks at the Giant's Causeway. We stumbled into The Nook and started eating and imbibing. The longer we sat the less we wanted to walk to the guesthouse. When we asked our waiter where the guesthouse was, she pointed across a large field and up a big hill. We had...

If you want to stay near the Giants causeway and do not want to stay in a Hostel or in a hotel, then this place is certainly convenient . That being said, rooms were very tight, bathrooms even tighter, and to get spotty WIFI you needed to go downstairs... oddly when asked about it.. said it was new, yet, you...

Just rapped up our 3 week vacation in Ireland and had the pleasure of staying at Carnside for 1 night. The Guest House is situated 1 minute to the Giant's Causeway and a few minute drive to Bushmills. The house itself is lovely. It is very clean, well furnished, super quiet. We had a very peaceful nights sleep there. The...

I loved it here! The breakfast was fine - a buffet selection of ample foods. The room was fine (although our walk-in shower/toilet was closed off from the room with some louvre doors which was rather quaint!) The place was a mish-mash of all sorts of furniture which added to its charm. When going out for a meal, the owners...

Delightful stay! Gracious hosts, very comfortable accommodations, generous breakfast, and, after a glorious day of hiking the coastal trail, I loved falling asleep to cows mooing. (it's a real dairy farm, too...)

Our room was in an unfortunate location right at the breakfast area. If we had wanted to sleep in there would have been no chance. Every sound from the dining area came through clearly. The breakfast was nice, service quick and friendly. There's a nice reading room/lounge available Best of all is the convienent location the Giants Causeway. It's a...

Just visited recently stayed here as a couple. Came away a bit disappointed, especially when customers are paying there bill beside you when you are having your breakfast. Payments are done in the breakfast aera?? A bit annoyed also with having to pay 3% on credit card, no warning of this.

This place is just amazing. It cost me £38 for a single room with a cold buffet breakfast. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was fab, home made bread and fantastic coffee along with fruit, cereals and a meat platter. Francis couldn't do enough and the views are stunning - perfect for a trip to the Giants Causeway...

This was a nice guest house. It's located walking distance to Giant's Causeway. The owners were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were fine. They have a nice sunroom and another room with a good view of the sunset. Breakfast was pretty good too.
