Another absolutely wonderful visit to Kenny and Mary. At least the 10th time I've stayed there with different friends and everyone is always amazed with their hospitality. On our latest trip a few days ago all my companions said it was the best place they had ever stayed in. Spotlessly clean rooms with every facility you could want. It really is an absolute pleasure to stay with them. Can't wait to visit again

I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 night stay in the Annex at Ken-Mar B&B. It was easy to relax in this quiet, conveniently located property. The large bedroom/sitting room offered a choice of beds, with first-class linens. The bathroom featured luxury towels (with seldom found facecloths..yeah!) and a generous supply of toiletries. In particular, the well-equipped mini-kitchen was very handy. Breakfast included a nice variety of fresh fruit and fun conversation, which I treasured, as I was travelling alone. I truly appreciated the personal touches of hosts Kenny & Mary. They were kind, caring and considerate. I'll never forget their welcoming ways and friendly, charming personalities.

You couldn't find a better accommodation than Ken-Mar House B&B in Ballymoney. Kenny and Mary are wonderful hosts, the property and rooms in top shape, clean, well-provisioned. The House is conveniently located in town, and Ballymoney itself is a perfect Basecamp from which to day-trip to the numerous sites in Northern Ireland. The breakfast is also top-shelf. Good WiFi, private parking area, en suite rooms, it's a comfortable lodging for a multi-day stay.
