“wee break away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014

We were heading to bushmills to visit the distillery and just have a break, I saw Rest A While on trip advisior when i searhed for a B&B. I just liked the look of it and the reviews were excellent. We had a wonderful stay, Gail made us feel at home, shes down to earth and very approachable. The the rooms was lovely and really comfortable and much better than some of the hotels weve stayed in. I was bit dubious about a B&B that is part of a family home but it works very well, the accommodation is off to one side of the property and although under the one roof it is very separate. We had a lovely breakfast the next morning after a very peaceful nights sleep. We plan to go back again later in the year we had such a positive and relaxing stay, and its so easy to find as its just outside the town.

My husband & I decided to have a weekend break (away from the kids) in Bushmills. This b&b was a wonderful choice. We usually go for self-catering rentals, but Gail the owner was kind, & helpful without being overbearing. The b&b itself is clean, modern, & homely. It's instantly apparent Gail takes great pride in its appearance. The room we stayed in was the same. Close to Bushmills, & all the local sites. I'd recommend a stay here to anyone! :)

We only spent one night but it was great - close to town if you have a car, very quiet at night. Good breakfast, lovely large, clean and comfortable room. Gail was very friendly and helpful but not overbearing. We had a great dinner at the Bushmills Inn on her recommendation as well. Very close to all the area's attractions.

What a wonderful place, We stayed 2 nights & 3 days, nothing was too much trouble for the owner Gail, She even booked us a table at the Bay View Hotel and the taxi to take us.The room was very spacious and well appointed with all amenities. A very quiet location.
If you stay before going to Bushmill's Distillery she will give you a voucher for a free miniature whiskey each. we will definitely stay again.

We recently stayed at the Rest a While B&B on our trip to Northern Ireland. The location was perfect and the host was very hospitable. There was a great binder in our room with recommendations on what to see and do in the area. They also provided some great restaurant options for us. Definitely recommend!

Spent 2 nights and 3 days last weekend, and loved every bit of it. It was our first visit to Northern Ireland, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Exotic views of the country side right outside, a little stream in the compound, warm, very comfortable and spacious room with all the facilities that make up for a perfect nest to rest! The breakfast was sumptuous and delicious. The hosts made it all even more special, by going out of their way and making us feel at home, helping us revel in the magic of Ireland every bit. The place is very tastefully and soulfully built, and is located centrally to a lot of attractive places of visit.
Definitely recommend Rest-a-While to anyone visiting there.
