Our tour took us to this pub for lunch where we were given a limited menu. The chicken Caesar salad I had was fresh and tasty. There was an interesting room called "Game of Thrones" which was decorated in the manner of the show as I guess it's filmed around the area.

Me, my wife and our best friends were in Northern Ireland last week. We were supposed to stay two nights in a different hotel but we had a very bad experience there the first night and left.
Found this place on the way to the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge. Came for breakfast (which was fantastic!), loved the place so much we booked ourselves for that night.
We loved our room, beds were incredibly comfortable, everything is kept very clean and the view was amazing - we see across the fields to Sheep Island (near Carrick-a-rede). Staff were very friendly and helpful to us, especially when we booked on VERY short notice.
Great starting point for touring Northern Ireland - a stone's throw away from Carrick-a-rede and only a few minutes from Giant's Causeway and Dunluce Castle. Wished we could have stayed longer but glad we found it when we did.
Definitely a great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone!

*On a side note, the region has noticeable ties to Game of Thrones. Ballintoy Harbour was actually the setting for the Iron Islands. The Fullerton Arms actually has 1 of 10 GOT doors (#6 to be exact) that were crafted after two trees in the Dark Hedges fell over during production.

What a pleasant experience in a beautiful little place! Our room was lovely and the breakfast fantastic and best of all were the people. So kind and helpful. This was a gem from another period in history.

Loved the fact this was a pet friendly pub and you could eat anywhere in the restaurant with your pet- usually in other places you get put in some pokey corner table but this place is great. Dairy milk cheesecake is amazing! Great 2/3 course Sunday roast! Definitely worth a visit and my two dogs loved it to!! Staff very friendly!

We stayed here for two nights as we were walking in the area. We walked from Bushmills to Ballintoy and were fortunate that we had fantastic weather during our stay. I'm not a Games Throne fan but door number 6 is located at Fullerton Arms and I understand some of the filming has been done around the area of Ballintoy. The coastline is beautiful. We visited Carrick Bridge too.
The food was delicious. I had Mussels with Jackbox Belfast Gin!
Staff were all helpful and friendly.

Room great. Pub v dog friendly. Food excellent value and tasty. Would recommend highly. Only slight downside if you are staying more than 1 night is limited veggie choice and strangely no sandwiches at lunch. All staff really friendly.

Nice room with a view of the ocean and a field of sheep. For the game of throne fans... you can find door #6 at this location.Close to giants causeway, dunluce castle, the dark hedges, and carrick-a-dee rope bridge.
