“Wonderful location & a very warm welcome”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

My sister & I stayed here for one night on her birthday, 20 June 2013.
We were met by Teresa who offered us tea and a chat before showing us to our en suite room with a harbour view (which all rooms have). Teresa asked if we would like a simple supper such as fish pie, but when we heard that the catch of the of the day was lobster we opted for that.
We set off to explore the Island and cycled to the far west and later to the east.
Dinner that evening was really special and the cook had made a delicious supper with a desert of fresh locally grown strawberries. We both slept soundly and enjoyed a hearty breakfast and later a bowl of tasty home made soup for lunch. All in all top marks from a former B & B landlady.

Room Tip: All rooms look good to me.

As we walked into the Manor House off the 9:30 am sailing we were met by Theresa with a broad smile and a charming welcome. This warm introduction continued for our whole stay. We felt most at home and nothing was too much trouble. I can highly recommend the Manor House for a most pleasant stay on Rathlin.

I have stayed a few times at the Manor House, the place is unsurpassed in it's setting in the calm bay on this wonderful island. The island is perfect for a day visit, but even better for staying a few nights where you truly get the "feel" of the place. The rooms are comfortable with mighty fine sea views, the evening meals (when available) are delicious, esp the oh so fresh seafood, the staff friendly and welcoming. I hope that the Manor House prospers under the new management and that many will come to enjoy this magical island.

We had an amazing stay in the recently re-opened Manor House. It has that ye olde world feel about it but this rather adds to its charms and the magic that is Rathlin Island itself. Our hosts, Terry and Alison could not have done more to make our stay as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible. The rooms, whilst basic, are clean and comfortable. We were delighted to be the first residents to experience the "light supper," which was delicious. Would thoroughly recommed a visit. Rathlin is heaven on earth anyway. I wish Terry and Alison every success in their new venture

Good luck to the new managers, great to see the Manor House open for summer 2013. I think it's currently open as a B&B, with evening meals possibly available on request. Sadly no bar and restaurant but still a lovely welcoming place to stay.

rathlinmanorhouse, Manager at Manor House Rathlin Island, responded to this review, 16 June 2013
We're delighted to be at the Manor House this summer, albeit without the Restaurant and Bar as we are operating with a minimal kitchen facility for this season.
Light breakfast is included in our room rates.
Our simple evening menu highlights lobster, crab and seafood, freshly landed at Rathlin harbour, accompanied by seasonal salads.
Teas, coffee and a selection of Fairtrade snacks are available through the day.

Great menus - evening restaurant menu, lunch menu, tapas menu & pizza menu. Always enjoy eating here. Some really first class & unusual dishes. Overlooking the harbour, great setting. Usually some craic in the bar too.
