We were travelling the Causeway Coastal Route and stayed in this b&b on the first night of the trip. We'd had an early start to the the day and had driven three hours prior to arrival so were happy when we arrived in Cushendall.
Cushendall is a beautifull, quaint, old village, small enough that we didnt struggle to find the b&b. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Ann and shown our double bedroom with ensuite. It was a cold and rainy day and the room had been warmed for our arrival. Even though the house was very old (18th century), the room was very modern. Everything you could want was there, hot drinks tray with tea/coffee/hot chocolate, TV, wireless internet and a binder full of information on the area, local walks, and history of the b&b. One negative was the water pressure of the shower was rather low, and the toilet had one of those noisy pumps which gave us a fright the first couple of times we flushed!
We also had use of a sitting room with tv, large sofa and gas fire. This was an added extra, and a nice alternative to sitting in your bedroom. For dinner there is a cute bistro just next door, although the food wasnt amazing it was super convienient and the excellent service made up for it. When we reutrned we had a lovely chat with Pat, who was a wealth of knowledge on the local area and gave us loads of tips on where to visit.
Breakfast - ABSOULTEY FANTASTIC, full irish with with all the trimmings nothing was too much for Ann. Overall a brilliant, warm, friendly, family run b&b. We were made to feel right at home. A little treasure, you won't find many like this, and we'll definitely be back for a visit.
