This is a great location for food & a regular for my family. Dave 'Boy' McAuley is always a great host but the food also speaks for itself. A good selection of food & a hearty feed for anyone. The food is more traditional fare, well cooked & good value. A good location by the sea for functions.

All the other meals looked delicious too. I tried 'champ' which is a local dish comprising of mashed potato and spring onions for the first time and...

Visited here for lunch with friends. Although the aesthetics of the bar and restaurant are dated, the food and service was to a good standard. Menu has lots of options all at very reasonable prices especially the two course offer. Food choices are quite old fashioned but done very well, making your visit seem homely and comforting. Open fire added...

Most importantly the rooms were clean and well presented. The food was very good or excellent and the service was every bit as good. The staff create an atmosphere that lends to total relaxation. To top it all, this is the very start of the Glens of Antrim, most likely one of the most beautiful places in all of Ireland....

The Halfway House Hotel is a family run hotel, situated on the world famous Causeway Coast/Antrim Coast and Glens. It can be described as the Gateway to the Glens and Causeway Coast because of the location. From the front of the hotel you can see that it is situated in a picturesque seaside village. On clear days, if you look across the sea you will be able to see the mountains of Scotland. Within the hotel there is also a large lounge area (Maidens Lounge) where food and drink are served daily. The menu has a wide variety of food available – from seafood to steaks and a great selection of sweets. Again this area has lovely views over the sea. ... more   less
