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.

Room Tip: Ask fro a room on the ground floor if you have special needs.

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 flower. So comfortable I wish we had been staying more then one night.

It is no exageration to describe the Deerings home as the best B&B ever! As a prior person wrote, Margaret treats everone as royalty. I found her through Frommer's Guide and I can't say enough about her.
We were so looking forward to staying there but shortly before we left home she wrote how sorry she was but her family had booked them on a Mediterranian cruise. She helped us find another place but then at the last minute their date was changed and she asked if we still wanted to come. Of course we answered yes.
Their home is an absolute gem! Beautiful antiques and family photos abound.
Her breakfast was absolutely fantastic! Served with every possible detail showing the love she has for what she does.
If you travel to Northern Ireland, don't miss the Ards Peninsula and a stay with Margaret Deering. It will be a highlight of your trip!

Room Tip: You don't need a tip! Every room is perfect!

In 2004, we stayed at Ballycastle House for 4 nights. We dined on Royal Doulton china, ate the finest Irish breakfast, with fresh fruit and fresh baked bread. The surrounding area is a dream come true and the Strangford Lough is but a walk away. Mount Stewart is a must to see and all this, right next to the most charming home on the Lough, Ballycastly House. In the early evening you will see a breath-taking view of Scrabo Tower while the sun is setting behind it. After we left, a family emergancy occured and Mrs. Deering was able to put us up again for 4 more nights! We rented the warmest, coziest cottage and she helped us feel like family. Mr. & Mrs. Deering went beyond kindness to accomodate us...We were absolutely blessed for staying there. This year as we go to Ireland, we are staying there again and renting the cottage! Margaret Deering is the most dear person and she treats all her guests as royalty!! Go there, you will not be sorry. You will only be sorry that you didn't book your entire trip around Ards, and stayed at Ballycastle House!
