“a northern gem”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

Glenluce is truly a gem. We only stayed for one night and I wish we could have stayed for longer! The location is excellent (right by the waterfront and in the heart of the Causeway Coast), the price is very good, and the breakfast was delicious. Our room was clean and comfortable. Most of all, Berkley (the owner) was truly a sweetheart. He parked our unwieldy rental car for us in his narrow driveway, hauled our heavy suitcases up to our room, and even offered washcloths to us, as he knew that many Americans tend to prefer showering with washcloths. He was so friendly and helpful. I'd stay at Glenluce Guest House again in a heartbeat.

Eight of us stayed for three nights on a bike tour of the north. From the start Clare and Berkeley couldnt be more helpful sorting out all requirments. All our rooms were clean and well presented. Living at Glenluce felt like being at home. Nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was high standard. Afternoon t in the cafe was very nice, didnt try evening meal in time we had but assume would be good. Overall one of the most welcoming and relaxing places i have stayed for a long time.
We liked The House of McDonnell in the centre of town for unspoilt quality, The Harbour Bar on seafront, plain but honest, and The Cellar restaurant good value very good food.

Room Tip: Just ask the owners when booking and they will advise you.

The Glenluce Lodge was a good little place. It was clean and decently priced. I was told the larger hotels or B&Bs are absolutely horrendous. I heard this from other travelers as well as people I met on the road who were actually from the town. It was a great location and an easy ride to the Causeway. Clean and when I bring my friends to visit Ireland I will stay here again. One or two nights max. Its basic but clean - most importantly. Don't expect much but it's pleasant.

We stayed in Glenluce just a couple of days ago, very nice guesthouse in a enormous Victorian house. Neal welcomed us with a big smile, nice room and shower, but they could change the bed, you could feel and hear the spirals in the matrass.
Perfect breakfast. Great for a nights stay. Just 5-10 minutes walk to the town and harbor.

Stayed one night in Ballycastle, as we used it as a base for the Giants Causeway. Only checked out accomodation once we arrived, so most other places we had wanted to stay at, were already booked. It was a busy time of the year, considering it was a bank holiday in the ROI and the weather was spectacular.

Had read the reviews in the LP, so I was pretty sure this guesthouse would be great. However, it was really only very average. I cant fault the management - they were very welcoming and helpful. Overall, its a guesthouse that could do with a facelift and, to me, it was more like a hostel. Our room was very basic, and unfortunately it didnt have an en-suite. But, this is more our fault as, like I said, we left it literally to the last minute to find something. But, in terms of location its great. And, Ballycastle has a lot more to offer in terms of bars and restaurants than many other towns/villages closer to the Causeway so, it suited our needs.
