Good rooms, excellent breakfast, friendly and great point of start if you plan visit The Dark Edges and Giants Causeway (15-20 minutes) It's located near main streets of Ballimoney. They reach top level in B&B

There is ample parking at the back of the property for...

Comfortable beds, quiet and large enough to accommodate all of our luggage and shopping. In room coffee or tea, free Internet, extremely clean....
