My wife and I stayed for 2 nights 2 weeks ago and had a lovely relaxing break. Breakfast and Dinner were very good as were the hosts and staff. Views from the bedroom and conservatory were beautiful. For a nice relaxing. quality break we would have no hesitation recommending the Stella Maris

Stayed here with no expectations last Saturday night as we were participating in a cycle event in Ballycastle on Sunday. WOW! An oasis of peace and tranquillity. Wonderful food. Frances Kelly and Terence Sweeney are charming and all the local staff are very friendly. We reluctantly departed but we will return.

The gravel driveway is always an immediate indicator that simple elgance and hushed tones surround the whitewashed walls of this outpost of civilization overlooking a wonderful beach. The restless bulls in the adjacent fields and roads did provide a whimsical reminder that this is Irish countryside. The whole show was enhanced by the genial hosts brimming with "bonhomie" for the...

Finally arrived at Stella Maris Country House after a travel detour and were graciously welcomed by Terry the owner and escorted to our room on the 1st floor. We had a delightful 4 poster with a view of the ocean. The hotel was originally a barracks and a convent which has been tastefully converted into a very comfortable country house....

I stayed here last weekend with my Mum. Dinner was outstanding, breakfast was great, the view from the conservatory was stunning and the owners were friendly and helpful but not intrusive which was lovely. Also, we were not rushed to leave on the Sunday which was lovely. My only disappointment was our room, it was truly convent like, lacked character...

My wife & I have stayed here a number of times over the past 10 years and have yet to be disappointed. The high standards set by the proprietors have not slipped, from the cleanliness of the rooms, the general fixtures & fittings, hands on service & the fabulous meals created from mostly locally sourced suppliers. The location is terrific...

We stayed at Stella Maris a few years ago and had one of the loveliest times we've ever had on vacation! The hotel is an understated, elegant little gem, and the owners, Terry and Francis, an Irish and an American couple, are about the most friendly, helpful hosts you could hope to find anywhere. We have returned to Ballycastle in...

For many years now, we are coming to the Stella Maris restaurant for birthday dinners and when visitors from abroad arrive. In each and every case, the standard of food and service has been outstanding. The location of the hotel - a renovated convent, hence the name - overlooking the sea towards Downpatrick Head is spectacular and breath-taking especially when...

This small inn is located in a renovated defensive coastal station which was built by the British army in the 19th century. The location on the water is very pretty and quiet, and the rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. The cooked-to-order breakfast was excellent, but the dinner was expensive and the food indifferent. Unfortunately, there are no other dining...

We stayed at the Stella Maris Country Inn near Ballycastle, Ireland and cannot express what a wonderful experience it was. The owners were very welcoming and made sure every part of our stay fully met our needs. The rooms are decorated in high quality antiques and the ensuite bath is fully updated and extremely comfortable. The view from the rooms...
