“Great location!”

Rose Cottage is situated in a perfect location for touring the area around Ballycastle. The Lammas Fair was going on while we were there and it helped to be out of the crazyness!
Seamus was very prompt in dealing with all our requests. The cottage itself is very adequate for a group of six and we had a lot of fun playing cards in the sun room. Our only complaints were lack of sufficient towels and running out of toilet paper. But there is a store just down the way and we picked up our own. I will say that the frig and freezer need a good cleaning - lots of leftovers from previous renters - some of it quite old. And we had a bit of trouble getting continuous hot water in the showers.
All in all, I would definitely recommend Rose Cottage to future visitors.

“Plenty of room, brilliantly close to all amenities and lovely outside sitting area.”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Decor needs updating. Sadly lounge stank of cigarette smoke, no DVD player and tumble drier didn't work. Plenty of room and sooo close to all amenities.

I appreciate any comments as to how the cottage may be improved. I will be updating the cottage in September where the living room will get a new carpet and will be painted. There is now a dvd player and the tumble dryer is available on request.

We really enjoyed our stay in Rose Cottage. I went with my husband, daughter and grandson and there was plenty of room. It was close to the beach with easy access to the bars and restaurants in the middle of the town. The house was very comfortable and very clean.
The only drawback is the central heating, we went at the end of October/early November and it was quite cold. The central heating was set to go on very early for 2 hours in the morning (unfortunately it went off before we got up) and 2 hours in the evening, the control was behind a Perspex box that was locked so we had no heating most of the time and it was very cold.

My cousin and I arrived a little later than scheduled. We popped down to the pub and met Seamus. We all walked back to Rose Cottage and Seamus showed us around and answered questions. He also left his mobile for any further questions. It is a family owned cottage in very good condition. The cottage looks small from the street, but, once inside, there is loads of room. It is immaculately kept and has anything and everything you could need on a holiday away from home. If you find you have forgotten something (hairdryer), you only need to let them know and they do their best to accomodate. I would stay there again and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone travelling to Ballycastle or the surrounding area.

Stayed at rose cottage for a week with my husband and elderly mother. The cottage is in a great location and the house itself had loads of room especially as there was only 3 of us staying in it. It has everything in it you would require. Shaumus and his wife sharon are very nice and when we had a problem they came straight away. There was no dvd as advertised but there is sky tv. Ballycastle is a fabulous place . Would highly recommend . Bernadette claydon.
