We loved staying at The Keep! It sits very near The Carrickfergus castle (a very quick walk), several pubs, a coffee shop, and restaurants. The Keep itself is very well-kept with lovely and very kind hosts. The breakfast was tasty and left us very full for a day of sight-seeing. Parking out front was easy. The rooms were nice-sized and quiet with solid wifi.

We definitely recommend staying here should you find yourself in this lovely part of Northern Ireland!

Comfy beds, very clean, 5 star breakfast and friendly, helpful hosts. Just a skip and jump away from the castle, so great position for wander around town. Near the train station too. Only minor thing was it was next to main road.

The standard definitely was the breakfast - a full irish plus cereal. I didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. The BnB is very well placed in town with good parking available. The owners were very helpful and accommodating (we called very late...). Only issue would be the size of the shower which was slightly small and hard to shower in.

Hi Lance,
Thank you very much for your taking the time to write an informative review. All our breakfasts are cooked freshly for each Guest, we are pleased the standard shows through. We do apoligise if you found difficulty whilst showering, it has never been brought to our attention before so thanks for mentioning it. We will have a look and see if anything can be improved. We are lucky to be the most central Guesthouse in Carrickfergus, its great for our Guests to be able to leave the car to go out to dinner or even to visit Belfast etc by Train or Bus. The Tour Buses that go up the Coastal Route to Giants Causeway etc, also pick up our Guests for the tour at the Castle, which is very handy for people who do not bring their cars.

Warmest regards,
Heather & Raymond.

The Keep is situated in an excellent location in the centre of the town near the Marina and other facilties. The rooms are comfortable and clean and there is a communal lounge which is spacious, bright and tastefully decorated. An excellent breakfast is provided which includes a choice of cereals, Ulster Fry, toast and a selection of fruit as well as fruit juice. Heather and Raymond did all they could to make our stay enjoyable and they even printed off our boarding tickets for our flights - most appreciated.Thank you so much for everything.

Room Tip: Three of us were in an appartment belonging to The Keep near the marina and we had breakfast at The Keep. The appartment was wonderful!
