We stayed with Ann and Ernie in May, 2012 for two weeks. We were part of a larger group (8 people) and were two of the lucky six to be staying with them.
This B&B is a gem. The hospitality we received was second-to-none. Both Ann and Ernie made every possible effort to see that we were well-fed, and gave us airy, comfortable rooms. There was plenty of storage space and the en suite had a shower with plenty of hot water.
As for breakfasts, you should be forewarned that they are truly filling. Ernie was quite willing to adjust portions and ingredients so that those of us who wanted something smaller got exactly what we wanted while those with larger appetites were never left hungry. Breakfasts, as Ernie very quickly and diplomatically pointed out, are not English breakfasts -- they are Irish breakfasts which include just about everything you'd find in an English breakfast plus additional goodies such as soda bread. Ernie is a dab hand in the kitchen and our group had two excellent evening meals which Ernie prepared for us. Together, Ernie and Ann (who adds a note of grace and calm) gave us a memorable stay in the B&B.
But it's not just the operation of the B&B which impressed us. In addition, they provided us with substantial local knowledge which added to our stay. They have a good selection of birding and other books which gave us additional information. Our only regret is that, since Ernie is a walker and knows the area very well and since we were on a walking vacation, we unfortunately could not arrange schedules so that Ernie could join us on at least one of our walks. Nevertheless, when we were walking in the nearby region, he was able to give us some background and excellent suggestions. He knows the best restaurants and can help you if need assistance making reservations.
For those who want to follow in our footsteps, we walked the portion of the Causeway Coast path including the Giant's Causeway (a must see) and tried to cross the rope bridge at Carrick-a-Rede but the weather made it impossible for us on that day. We spent a day on Rathlen Island (a short ferry ride away) where we watched puffins, razorbills, guillemots and a variety of other seabirds.
The Portstewart Strand is a lengthy, sandy beach that makes for a gentle, relaxing walk. On your return, try to walk across the dunes and along the banks of the Bann Estuary.
Other reviewers have mentioned the DVD selection. Frankly, we were so tired at the end of the day that we never once saw one of the videos! So our days began with a gorgeous view of the roiling waters in the bay of the Irish Sea and ended, often, with a glass of wine in the front sitting room watching a magical sunset.
