The Diamond has a very professional landlord who knows how to keep all his customers happy. A very well run pub and a pleasure to spend a leisurely couple of hours in.

We dropped in early one evening and had a meal at the bar. Enjoyed a convivial atmosphere and decent pub food. Our server, Sandra, was the best server we had during our three nights in Ballycastle—she was efficient, fast, and friendly!
