We spent one night in the Glenluce Guest House when we were touring the Giant's Causeway area and found the host, Berkely, among the nicest people we met in Ireland, which is really saying something. We had our choice of two rooms, an offer to help tote luggage up the stairs, help getting online with the rather tricky wi- fi (available in only certain areas in the house), careful directions and recommendations, an excellent breakfast, and even assistance when it was time to back our car out into traffic.
The guest house itself has both the charms and quirks of an older property, but a portable heater was provided in case we needed it. The en suite bathroom had an I-dare-you-to-turn-around-or-drop-your-soap sized shower and several missing light bulbs, so I think it's fair to say that the place could use a little maintenance and maybe updating, but the room was comfortable enough, and the Quay Street location was ideal -- an easy walk to the water in one direction and the town center in the other. A Tea Room in the building is open for business during the day and is where the nicely done breakfast is served.
The price was certainly reasonable, the location convenient, and the owner exactly what a B&B host should be, so we were pleased with our stay and would recommend this guest house to others.
