The stay was an absolute pleasure. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly and really appear to love being there. The whole house, room and bathroom was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. Everything was perfect!

Stayed just the one night in Cottesmore B&B, but wish we had stayed longer. The rooms were perfectly appointed with an excellent ensuite. It's just a 5 minute walk to Bushmills Distillery and another 5 to the heart of the town. Breakfast was fantastic as well and ready for you when you wake up as you order the night before.... More

Awesome! We did not have a reservation but Rae had a twin room available. She was so welcoming and friendly. She recommended a restaurant down the street that was very good. When we returned from dinner we sat in the parlor that reminded me of my grandmas house. I am sensitive to scents and are always worried about heavy perfume... More

We met the host outside the B&B and were immediately invited inside for a cup of tea. Lovely, large double room with a separate bathroom (huge bath tub). It is easy to find, in walking distance to Bushmills distillery and great for further trips along the coast.

We had a double room which was nice but a little bit on the small side with a separate bathroom. The bathroom was very nicely finished. The breakfast was very good. The location was very convenient for many of the attractions in the area.

This B&B, located in the lovely town of Bushmills, is well located to all the local attractions - the distillery, the causeway, the rope bridge and the dark hedges. Rae and her husband were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was delicious! Would love to go back!

You cannot beat the Cottesmore B&B in Bushmills. Rae and John are the best hosts you could ask for and they are incredibly helpful as well. We stayed here for two nights and had the most delightful time. The B&B is located about a 5 minute walk (if that) to the Bushmills Distillery where there also happens to be a... More

Lovely bright room and bathroom, sparkling clean and very hospitable hosts. And an excellent Ulster fry! About a 5 min walk to centre of bushmills, very close to the distillery as well. A short drive to sites including giants causeway.
