We have stayed in these apartments several times as we have family in N.Ireland. We have stayed with another couple and on previous occasions with children. We have stayed in nearly all the apartments. The ones downstairs have the best view as the windows are bigger with the floor to ceiling windows but we have stayed in one of the apartments upstairs and it was still lovely. It was just a few days after Christmas when we stayed in the one upstairs and it was very cosy as it had a fireplace and fire and also Jennifer had put a Christmas tree in all the apartments which was a lovely touch. We first stayed in them 7 years ago and on average have stayed once a year ever since when going over for family christenings and weddings.
The Apartments are immaculate and very well equipped. The location is excellent for visiting all the fantastic places on the Antrim Coast such as the Giants Causeway and Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge. Jennifer, the Manager, always makes us very welcome. There is a BBQ that can be used and this must be the best place in the world to have a BBQ with the view of the Antrim Coast. It is good that the Spar shop in Ballygally has now opened again as it closed for a while and it is very handy although does not sell alcohol.
Last time we went we arranged for our shopping to be delivered from ASDA shortly after arriving and this was great as the last thing we wanted to do after our journey was go shopping. However, as previous people have mentioned Jennifer always leaves a welcome pack so you can at least have a cuppa when you arrive. There is always plenty of dishwasher tablets and things like that so you don't have to worry about taking them.
My only reluctance is recommending these apartments to people is that they will get booked up even more and we won't be able to get in!!
