“This is Ireland.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2012

Previous reviews have said it all really. Susan is a fantastic hostess. We arrived around 9pm on the Friday night - she called around the local restaurants to book us a table for dinner and she even offered to drive us into Cushendall, should we wish to have a drink with our food. Susan and Raymond are a very friendly couple. The house has been constructed by Raymond and is beautifully done in wood throughout. They have a wonderful bar-b-que space that overlooks a spectacular view down to the sea, this should be a real bonus in the summer.
A previous reviewer included details of the new annex, which is also a very good idea. This is an excellent value-for-money guest house, hosted by a true Irish family. And, by the way, the area is gorgeous.

As travellers from Australia we could not praise this B&B enough. We stayed at Glenn Eireann House twice now and both times we had a great stay.
Raymond and Susan are wonderful hosts and could not do enough for us.
The view from the house must be one of the best in the Glens looking down to the Bay.
It makes a handy base to explore the Antrim Glens and surrounding area.
Susans breakfast will set you up for a long day of driving or walking.
If you just want a quiet time then relax in the quiet lounge or just sit out in the outside area and enjoy the view.
I highly recommend a stay at the Glenn Eireanne House.

Initially, a little hard to find... we were driving in from Belfast- you have to pass the town of Cushendall and follow the signs to Ballycastle, about ~5km past the town. But it's actually right on the Coastal Causeway, with private parking behind the building. It's a relatively new construction with heating from the ground, good shower pressure, and toilets. The only criticism we have is that there is no place to hang towels in the bathroom or place any toiletries.

We were warmly welcomed, and given great suggestions for dinner in town. They don't provide shampoo/soap but they kindly allowed us to borrow their personal supply. Hot Irish breakfast was delicious.

The drive to the Giant's Causeway and Bushmills Distillery was easy from here, about 90 mins.

My family and I arrived to a warm welcome in this lovely B&B, which was just what we needed after driving up to Cushendall on a dark, wet and windy night. Everything felt clean and new, and we didn't have much trouble relaxing - a comfy bed, Irish hospitality, a good tea selection, and a cosy living room. The surroundings are beautiful: the garden extends into a green, leafy valley, and on the horizon, a glimpse of the sea. I was quite excited to hear a deer barking in the distance one morning. The dining room - a large conservatory - actually overlooks this view, so it's the ideal place to enjoy a full cooked breakfast and morning coffee. We left feeling that we had been well cared for here.

We received a warm welcome from Susan McKeegan to her lovely B&B in a beautiful location in the valley above Cushendun. The house is big, modern, clean, well furnished and has an amazing curved wooden staircase. One of the bathrooms has a huge jacuzzi-type bath! Susan was very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. The breakfast was great and set us up for the day. The B&B is located on the A2 north of Cushendall and there is a pub/restaurant, Mary McBrides, in Cushendun, which serves good food. Susan and her husband are in the process of fitting out an annex next to the house, which will be equipped with facilities for the elderly, disabled and also adults and children with special needs - it should be ready by 2012. This B&B was good value for money and a great stop on our route around the Antrim coast.

Stayed at Glenn Eireann House B&B while carrying out helicopter surveys along the coast. Was a fantastic place to stop as it has an ideal helicopter landing area on the lawn just below the house. The free high-speed internet was also extremely useful.
Very friendly and helpful hosts that produced a breakfast second to none and even managed to organise good surveying weather the next day...
Would highly recommend this place to anybody travelling to/through this area.

Raymond and Susan and their children are wonderful. I felt so welcome from the minute I arrived. The setting is so peaceful and beautiful and their home is a glowing testament to Raymond's skill as a builder. They made me, a single older woman travelling on her own, so comfortable. I will return to this particularly wonderful place in Ireland.
