The Village B&B
Ranked #6 of 10 Cushendall B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This B&B was clean, safe, simple. The slightly strange arrangement on arrival was that we had to phone the owner on his mobile. We couldn't immediately contact him but eventually he called back and told us to choose a room. It seems the B&B is run during the day by guests letting themselves in and out, and locking their room doors. Breakfast was simple (scrambled eggs, choice of cereals, toast and fruit juice) but very tasty. We saw more of the owner at breakfast time and he was polite and helpful.
Our nights' sleep was disturbed badly by terrible noise from outside, caused by cars being raced around the narrow streets of Cushendall, including repeated circling with screech of tyres and smell of burning rubber. This seemed not to be an unusual event. Keeping our window shut, which reduced the noise a bit, wasn't feasible in the warm weather. It was a shame as it spoiled an otherwise simple but pleasant stay,

We stayed here for one night only and had to leave too early to have breakfast so my review really is just for the dog 'friendly' room. It is in an outbuilding in the courtyard behind the main building, with a large double bed and ensuite shower room, scrupulously clean. Trouble is, it's kinda half hearted as regards dog welcome. We were not allowed to bring our small dogs into the communal sitting room and were thus confined to the bedroom by wet weather. Apart from the bed there was nowhere to sit. A nice lady offered us a chair but it was an upright dining chair. There was one small door mat, not ideal when you have to walk wet dogs straight in from outside. In short, it felt more dogs tolerated than dogs welcome. A big dirt absorbing doormat, two armchairs or sofa and a tv would make all the difference. Plus maybe a few touches like old clean towels to use as dog towels and a bonio or two.

Room Tip: It's opposite McCollom's pub, brilliant for live trad music and a good restaurant upstairs.

Stayed in in May at short notice (on the day). Like many places in N.I its a bit old fashioned but I kinda like that sometimes! Would prefer kettle etc in the room, but no Tv is fine. Note to other travellers, phone signal is not existent in the immediate area, so if you have to call to get access you will have to walk up the street. My only slight gripe was with my fellow guests who thought it acceptable to be shouting at each other gone midnight. Food in nearby restaurant is ok if you like fish, if not best avoided.

Room Tip: sleep at the back, road is surprisingly busy.

Me and my boyfriend stayed 3 nights here over the Giro Italia weekend. We arrived late, didn't meet anyone, but easily found our room and keys, dropped bags and went across to (excellent) bar across the street. Found room warm, comfortable and clean. Next morning had great ulster fry - really very good quality with EVERYTHING including real coffee and orange juice! Proprietor was easy going and relaxed, friendly and available. In the end its a clean, comfortable and friendly B&B. If you want hotels with TVs in every room you should probably book the Jurys Inn in Belfast, but then you wouldn't get the delight of staying in the centre of lovely Cushendall. Best to all the folk there who made our stay on the Antrim coast so enjoyable.

Stayed at this B & B on Easter Monday night, arrived in the afternoon and got an nice welcome from the lady there and immediately shown to our room on the second floor - the room is everything you need for a short stay in that bed linen is very clean, as was the ensuite and a good size power shower. The room does not have tv or tea/coffee faclities but however both can be found outside on the landing (small sofa and area to watch tv also there), neither of these things would put me off from returning as for a one night stay for me are not that important. The street was very quiet all night and no sound could be heard from outside. We ate in "upstairs at Joes" at the bar across the road and its a must see visit for both food and drink, they had guys playing music there and when leaving very late it was a pleasure to have to walk over the road and bed (taxis appear to be non exisitent in Cushendall so location of B & B is essential). During breakfast which was very good, quite filling with good flavours the owner came over and had a chat - again made us feel very welcome. My first visit to Cushendall / Cushenden and will be back.

Nice, clean place with great breakfast. Owner met us there in 5 minutes after we called him. We had no reservations. Food and music steps away. Harry's is great seafood restaurant next door. The Glens is a beautiful area.

We stayed here for five nights on a break after Christmas. The friendly village of Cushendall was recommended in my guide book as a good location for anyone wishing to enjoy the scenic beauty of the Glens of Antrim and we weren't disappointed. The Village B & B was a great choice on the main street, (Mill Street). Alec, the owner, was welcoming and very accommodating. The bedrooms were warm and comfortable with good hot showers. Tasty breakfast was provided. Even though the bedrooms overlooked the street we heard no noise at night. There is a comfortable television room downstairs. Free WiFi. The B & B is across the road from the traditional pub, McCollums, which should not be missed. Good restaurants are also beside the B & B so no need to drive at night.
