We looked at a few places to stay but ended up off the eaten path at a wonderful place called Hillsea run by Marcus Jameson - a lovely robust fellow in his early 70s. The place was beautiful and they had a twin room for us with an en suite bathroom. The room was very sweet and had a lovely view of the green hills. Everything was very clean and comfortable! We had scheduled breakfast for 8:30 so when we went down stairs Marcus had his red apron on and asked us if we took a full Irish breakfast. Which of course we did. We were so full and it was by far the best brekkie we had the whole time in Ireland. We set out to drive the coast for awhile on our way to the rope bridge and Giants Causeway.
Parking available and safe
Stayed 1 night here.
The room was comfortable and clean, with a gorgeous sea view. The landlady is friendly and the breakfast she served was sumptuous and delicious. The area is quiet and parking is easy - right out front.
The major downside was that our "private" bathroom turned out to be outside on the landing - not "en suite"!. Not ideal and not what I was expecting.
One other irritation was that the guest lounge was below our room, and some other guests were shouting loudly & swearing whilst watching football on TV. Hard to enjoy peace & quiet in the room with that going on below.
Cost £60 for 2 (inc breakfast)
The sea view.
Beautiful house, lots of privacy, only place open in February, wonderful breakfast, and most wonderful host Genevive.
On the harbor, the harbor bar was totally fun and nice.
We have stayed at Glenmore House on a number of occasions, and always found it the perfect place to relax, with Valerie and John as hosts. It has a number of rooms suitable for families, couples, singles, or disabled, and a choice of either cooked or continental breakfast.
It is ideally situated on the North Antrim Coastal Route, close to the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and the Giant's Causeway, and a short distance away from the world famous Bushmills Distillery, a visit there is recommended, so it makes a perfect base for exploring one of the most scenic areas in Europe
It also has a campsite with facilities for Touring caravans, Motorhomes and tents, and if you fancy trying your hand at fly fishing it has two lakes, with rod hire available.
It has recently added a new larger Bar, where Valerie and John's two daughters can sometimes be persuaded to play traditional Irish music, and has a new Chef in the Restaurant, who serves up mouthwatering dishes each visit.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Glenmore to anyone. Roll on our next visit.
Great views to Rathlin Island and the Scottish Coast beyond
Crockatinney sits on its own 56 acres overlooking the Antrim Coast and over towards Scotland. We stayed there for three nights and hated to leave!
Caroline is the most delightful of people. She makes sure that every guest is comfortable. The bedrooms were outstanding. Mine had a view over towards Scotland, as Caroline recalled me saying that my Gran was born there. Hot water was plentiful and the showers were perfect. The beds were very comfortable. I slept soundly without much movement, which is a good sign.
The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious! Caroline made sure that my food was cooked sperately from any mushrooms or seafood
There is a famine graveyard on premises, which is well worth a walk.
Kinnbahn Castle ruins are withing walking distance
Outstanding views of the Coast & Scotland
Self Catering Cottages also available
Always enjoyable and never disappointed.
Beautiful seaviews, excellent food and service and of course the fishing lake.
