Ms. Fragrens was just like a long lost Grandmother. She was delightful. We had been walking for several days and needed to do laundry terribly. She let the four of use use her facilities, washer and dryer, so that we were fresh for the next few days. Breakfast was awesome and she gave us great input on nearby restaurants.

My wife and I, were on a walking trip in Northern Ireland, where the rooms are booked by the tour company without prior approval by me.. a tad concerning, and in some cases during the trip, warranted. YET, we spent 3 nights ( due to a lack of rooms in destination towns) at the Fragens B+B, and I am glad... More

We stopped here for two nights. We arrived after having walked for more than 8 hours so seeing the B& B was a very welcome sight! We had 1 room on the ground floor and 1 on the first floor, both were very comfortable,warm and clean. The breakfasts were cooked to order and there was a great choice.

Stayed here recently because of an event in Ballycastle. We enjoyed our overnight - room no 1 was spacious and en-suite immaculate. Bed was comfortable, even a blanket available! We enjoyed our breakfasts; my veggie edition of Ulster Fry was excellent (fadge, soda, fried egg, mushrooms and tomato) and her's looked good too. Nice experience, would go back!

My wife and I visited Fragrens some 9 years ago and were most impressed with the overall standards of this establishment. Last week-end we had occasion to re-visit and, once again, we were pleased to find that the high standards had been maintained and this proved quite pleasing.
