Have just returned from a visit to Ballylinny Cottages. Had stayed previously at these cottages but had decided to give it a break as it hadn't been up to standard so hoped this time things would have improved. When we arrived there was no-one to greet us. We eventually got through to the owner on his mobile who advised us that the key was in the door (we were staying in one of the barn conversions) When we entered the accommodation there was no heat on and we couldn't manage to start the gas stove. The housekeeper arrived a couple of hours later (she just walked in - I did think that it would have been good manners to have at least knocked prior to entering!) and advised that the heating was set in a manner that it would come on when the property cooled and that the heat setting would be sufficient to keep us warm. Two hours later the heat still had not come on so we phoned the owner on his mobile (again!!) and eventually got through to him. After a ten minute conversation we managed to get the heat on. However, we were not so lucky with the gas stove as he eventually came to the conclusion that he probably needed to change the batteries in the stove to enable it to ignite!

Cleanliness - unfortunately, this barn conversion was seriously lacking in cleanliness. There were finger marks all over the windows; cobwebs hanging from the ceilings; skirting boards were covered in thick dust; and the floors were also covered in dust and hairs. The sofas are obviously not moved when cleaning as there were pieces of paper and plastic under them. The bedroom that had been allocated to us also contained two large camp beds which took up quite a lot of room - it would be a good idea that if they were not needed then they should be kept in an alternative location. One of the two bathrooms in the barn conversion had about 15 long black hairs lying on the floor and one of the pillowcases on the bed had dried blood on the corner of it. Yes - the bedlinen had been washed but surely if this sort of stain is on a piece of bedlinen then it should be discarded. Towels - these had seen better days! The kitchen was well equipped - however, the splash guards behind the sink and the cooker contained a number of small flies and sand!!
Due to the number of issues that we had with this accommodation we will not be returning to Ballylinny.

Hi spent a week here the weather wasn't kind to us but the bungalow was very spacious and we had a lovely view from the small sitting room, managed to get a coal fire going which was lovely.
Four bedrooms all quite spacious two bathrooms and a large kitchen.
Only thing I would comment on is that the fixtures are quite dated and the Bungalow could do with a bit of modernisation, bit of a tribute to the eighties.
The walks around this coastline are marvellous just be prepared for all weathers and wear sturdy shoes.

Stayed here for a 5 day break in September. Was expecting a cottage but ended up in a loft barn appartment. Loads of room and very well equipped to eat in,but it really needed a good clean! Skirtings were filthy and all the windows had cobwebs across the curtains , towels looked grubby and it all looked very tired. We were expecting a list of local Doctors numbers etc and emergency procedures but there was non .A little welcome note would have been nice as we only got to meet the owner shortly before we left. The cottages / apartments are in a great location, we loved the causeway and surrounding areas and feel the only negative is the cleanliness.

The cottage was great just what we wanted close enough to all the sights but a nice distance out in the country for some get away from it all time. I dont think there was anything in the cottage that had been over looked Alan seems to have thought off everything. We would certainly stay again next time we are that way again.

Beautiful location overlooking ocean and countryside. Close to all major tourist top 5 locations and town centre. To improve on this rating we would suggest better and cleaner towels, a box of tissues, shampoos etc, better basic
guest requirements. Hawks Hollow wi fi was non existent inside, had to sit in the car to get any basic reception. All in all, can recommend a stay here.
