We have stayed at the Fullerton Arms 5 times now and I can't recommend this place enough.The staff are amazing,the food is superb and it's an overall great experience. Great value for money too! The deals are unbelievable!We have been made so welcome,we keep going back.We have 2 dogs and they have a special room that allows us to keep them with us! If you're a dog owner you know that means a lot.Many thanks to all the staff. Keep up the good work.

We just happened to drop on this place after going sight seeing. We had steak which came on a cast iron plate. The smashed potato with spring onion and cheese was lovely the steak was cooked to,perfection. Could not manage to eat it all. If your passing this place call in the staff are friendly and it does have good food.

We have driven past The Fullerton Arms lots of times but had never called in. We decided to call for a meal and were very well pleased. As soon as we went in the staff were very friendly and attentive without being "in your face" every two minutes. The food was very good and the menu varied, we will certainly be back the next time we are in the area.

I stayed here a few month ago with my sister. I'm sad to see that others may not have had such a pleasant experience at this place. We came in with friends who had been there the night before and loved it so much they brought us along for a second night. There was live music in the bar area. The food was delicious and we ended up staying the night. The manager and staff are all so kind and helpful! They were definitely more than accommodating and I can't thank them enough for such a wonderful stay. Like I said before i'm sad to see that others have had unpleasant experiences so I suppose you'll just have to check it out yourself and form your own opinions I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone! Great location, great food, great service and beautiful rooms!
Thanks guys!! : )

The Fullerton Arms was a very nice accommodation. Within walking distance to a beautiful toe path that goes along the edges of the Giants Causeway, and a restaurant, and a small cozy pub. There was also a pub and a restaurant inside the Fullerton Arms and this was very nice as well! The room and beds were clean, and there was a bathroom in the room. The people were very nice as well!

Room Tip: Just know that since this is in Northern Ireland, they charge you in pounds. The going rate for two...

We stopped in about 20:00 on Thursday evening the 12th June.
I had quite a wait before I even managed to get a pint (of what was, very good) Guiness.
After a look at the, by NI, standards pricy menu, I ordered a burger.
And waited, and waited,
And waited, and waited.
Another pint of slowly consumed Guiness.
And waited, and enquired
And waited and waited.
Nice atmosphere, with live music btw
Finally went up to the bar, and asked again.
The final straw was the comment that "they had a party of 11 in the restruant"
I paid for my beer and we left.
without eating.
PS
The Bass looked more like roll-mop herrings.
