I stayed here one night as I was working in the area and I couldn't have picked a lovelier place. Margaret welcomed me with a pot or tea and a muffin (the teapot even had a teacosy on it!). Lovely spacious room and breakfast...well, what can I say? Delicious. Try the homemade bread - it's to die for! Thanks for...

My daughter and I stayed at Ballycastle House for a few days in September 2013 and were thrilled with both the accommodation quality and the graciousness of our hosts.

Four of us had a warm welcome from Margaret and were given comfortable rooms. Breakfast was splendid and freshly cooked to order. It all felt very homely and we were treated to a tour of Ronnie's fabulous collection of old restored tractors and cars. An added bonus was watching the red squirrels playing in the garden. Thanks very much to...

Our host Margaret made us dinner reservations at a pub near by and that was helpful due to our late arrival. Margaret treats everyone as part of the family and you feel truly a part of the family. The food was good and the rooms were nice.

Thank goodness, Margaret had the cottage available since I had injured myself on arrival in Ireland and was having to use a wheelchair. The cottage has a kitchen, living room and two bedrooms, one on the ground floor. Margaret had already made us a dinner reservation in the nearby town. The B&B was charming and the grounds were in full...
