Our family stayed here for 2 nights in late July and loved it! Joan and John made us feel very welcome in their beautiful home, we really enjoyed being able to chat with them. Having hiked on Rathlin Island and being caught in a downpour earlier in the day, Joan offered us tea and cookies which warmed us right up.... More

We spent two nights with Joan and her husband, John, at Bengore House; we could have spent many more here in this most beautiful spot. The house couldn't have been better situated for sightseeing the area -- right between The Giant's Causeway and The Carrick A Rede Bridge. We love Balintoy Harbor so much we kept going back in the...

Bengore House is the finest B&B I have stayed in ever. It is situated on a hill overlooking the ocean and is close to the Giant's Causeway and many small towns that exemplify life in coastal Northern Ireland. The ocean views from the many windows in the dining room, sitting room, bedrooms and hallways are fantastic. The house has all... More

My husband and I recently stayed here after a long day of hiking. This home was breathtakingly beautiful, and immaculately clean. Of all the places we stayed while vacationing in Ireland, Joan was by far the most kind, gracious, and attentive host. The breakfast was amazing, only to be outdone by the view you have while eating it! The bed... More

After 3 nights in this lovely house, my husband and I did not want to go home. The house is spotless, with lovely attention to detail and very comfortable. Joan is a great hostess with lots of suggestions of places to visit and interesting things to do and see. A great secluded B&B that we would thoroughly recommend.

Joan runs an impeccable B&B in a beautiful setting. The house is gorgeous, modern and peaceful. Breakfast in her dining room feels like you’re sitting down with old friends or family.
