My husband and I had a recent two-night stay at Shola Coach House and could not have been more impressed by the way in which Dave and Sharon took care of every detail to make sure that our visit was as enjoyable as possible. It is one thing to have beautiful, well designed accommodation, which Shola definitely has, and quite...

Stay here- seriously, stay here! This place was just the cutest, quaintest, most charming b&b. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was fantastic. We stayed in the Garden room, which is seperate from the rest of the house and made for a private evening. The food is exceptional. My husband had the salmon breakfast and he said he had...

Just returned from a wonderful 2-night stay at Shola B&B near Portrush. The B&B itself is a beautiful building, carefully and thoughtfully furnished and decorated, and our room (Lavender) was very large and comfortable despite being the cheapest of the three rooms available. This B&B has so many lovely little touches - the bottle of water by the bed, the...

We had a wonderful overnight stay at the Shola Coach House. Sharon and Dave are fantastic hosts. They've created a fabulous get away on the north coast. Their B&B is charming, cozy, and very comfortable. It's a lovely setting and only a short drive to Portrush for dinner. The home-cooked breakfast the next morning was delicious. It's an easy drive...

Shola Coach House is a charming and welcoming place to stay. Over a cup of tea and fabulous fruit and shortbread, Sharon made every effort to ensure we were comfortable with the area and had the proper directions to get where we were going. Nothing was rushed and our accommodation in the Garden room was wonderful. We wouldn't hesitate to...

You never quite know what to expect when you book something last minute online - we needn't have worried. Shola is a beautifully appointed, welcoming B&B with friendly hosts and comfy beds, perfectly located for Portrush and other tourist attractions on the dramatic north coast of Northern Ireland. We are vegetarian and Sharon was happy to accommodate us. I would...
