“Lovely B&B”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We stayed at Carnately Lodge in July 2013. The couple who own/run the B&B were absolutely lovely. The room was spacious and while part of the main house was still private. The room was well appointed, the large bed was very comfortable, with a generous en suite (in fact it was the biggest bathroom we had of the 6 Ireland hotels we stayed in on the trip). Everything was very clean. There is parking behind the house and as it is situated slightly out of town the B&B was nice and quiet.

There was a good selection at breakfast which is served until 10am and is cooked well.

The owners recommended the Central Bar for dinner. From the outside it looks like a rather dark bar, however its deceptively large inside and the 2nd floor is a light, modern and comfortable dining area serving a varied menu.

Overall we thought it was a lovely B&B and we would recommend.

Stayed for one night in June and they were brilliant! A bottle of water was beside the beds for us, bert organised a taxi and dinner reservation at a lovely restaurant and the rooms were lovely! Breakfast was delicious with smoked salmon and eggs being the best brekkie in Ireland. Colette even gave us a packed lunch for the day! Defo will recommend and visit this place again!

The B & B is located a bit out of the center of Bellycastle (so you have to drive your car to the center). Room and bathroom are very nice and very clean. So we had a good night sleep. For the breakfast you have several choices. We both took the smoked salmon and scrambled egg, which was the best breakfast we had in our trip throughout the whole of Ireland. Just great!

This B&B was perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The owners were absolutely delightful, the house was gorgeous, the bedroom was so comfortable (the bed was great!), and you just have to experience the scrumptious Irish breakfast!! So much thought had gone into the preparation of this B&B, everything from the water bottles beside the beds to the slippers in our room. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and only wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back the next time we are in Northern Ireland! Thank you very much for having us and for being so welcoming.

I arrived in Balleycastle on a whim and went to the Tourist Information centre which was closed at 4pm. The man at the Ferry centre helped me find somewhere to stay. I eventually had a recommendation to call Carnately Lodge which I did. I have never stayed anywhere else as warm and comfortable where the hosts were so welcoming. I was invited in immediately and Colette made me feel like I was at home I almost wanted to travel back to Australia. She and her husband were so nice (an understatement). They even helped a traveller who broke down on the road outside. Words fail me on this place and its owners - they are the best. I miss you both already!!! Will be back with the man Colette.

Room Tip: I saw a lot of the rooms and they all looked beautiful. I think you would be lucky whichever room y...

We were looking for a place to stay and saw the lodge. It looked nice from the road so we stopped in to find out if they could accommodate us for the night. What a pleasant surprise. The owners were very friendly and the lodge was very comfortable and spotless. Our room was on the first floor and offered a queen sized bed. We took advantage of the Irish-style breakfast in the morning and were on our way. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would certainly stay at the Carnately Lodge again if we were in Northern Ireland

Room Tip: The lodge does not accept credit cards.

From the moment you enter this beautiful B&B you know you are on Holiday. Our room was so beautiful and the bed was the comfiest we have ever known!! (we wanted to take it with us !!) The furniture was to a high standard and the bathroom was clean and spacious with a lovely shower. The B&B itself is set in a wonderfully scenic location just outside of Ballycastle, and very local to all of the best sightseeing places to visit, but Colette and Bert are by far the best thing about this place. They welcome you into their home with open arms, they cook the best and biggest breakfast you can imagine, with no shortage of coffee or toast. They will accomodate anyone, and are very happy to help, (even hang up your very wet things after a soaking at the Northwest 200;-) ) I do truly miss them already and cant wait to book our next trip to see them and their beautiful country.

Room Tip: Room 4 is very special great for Couples, Honeymooners,
