The Homestead Guest House
Ranked #5 of 6 Cairnryan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 May 2014

my wife and i were travelling to n ireland from the ferry at cairnryan and stayed again at the homestead b & b, this is probably the 4 or 5 time we have stayed here, and the quality and service has remained the same beautiful rooms, had the benefit of new beds in our room, we always ask for the room at the front good for a cup of tea and watch the world go by. the true judge of anywhere is to go several times and the high standards at the homestead have not changed from the rooms ,the excellent choose and quality of the breakfast or the lovely hosts it is great value for money

Room Tip: even the front facing rooms are quiet and we had a great nights sleep

Another great night's sleep! My husband and I always stay at the Homestead when catching the ferry to Ireland. The Homestead must be at the top of the list when selecting the best B & B. Very clean and comfortable rooms and house. You would travel the world to match Margaret's hospitality. She will do anything she can to make your visit A*. The delicious breakfast, served exactly as you like it, will set you up for the rest of the day and more!!

Excellent family-run B&B, you can clearly see great pride is taken in the cleanliness, service and quality of food served. Margaret is a very welcoming host and treated us as if we're part of the family and she couldn't do enough for us. We had travelled overnight from South Cerney and parked outside until check-in time but Margaret came and got us early and put on breakfast, can't ask better than that! Will definitely go back to Homestead when we're in the area again.

Credit where credit is due. I travelled up from Bristol and got a lovely reception.This B&B is truly excellent, spotless rooms and beds, excellent breakfast, lovely friendly host (Margaret) and great value for money.
You honestly could not ask for anything more, I had that lovely feeling of being fully satisfied with the service I received when I left the next morning, can't say that very often now days.

Spent two nights on our way to and from Ireland. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Margaret was a very kind host and we had a delicious cooked breakfast which was prepared exactly as we wanted it. Margaret takes great pride in her establishment and ensures that you are happy. On our return journey she offered us the larger room upgrade, which was lovely. There are tasty snacks in the room, and the showers are warm and powerful. Margaret also recommended two places in Stranraer to have dinner. The one we tried was lovely. I would highly recommend staying at the Homestead, and it is our go-to place whenever we have to spend the night in Cairnryan for the ferry (it's exceptionally convenient for the P&O Ferry).

Room Tip: There are four rooms, two at the front (with a double and single bed) and two at the back (one with...

We enjoyed our stay here and our innkeeper was friendly and sweet. The breakfast was great, the room clean and comfortable. It is located directly across from the ferry to Larne, Northern Ireland, but that's it. We were taking the ferry the next morning so it was perfect for us. There. is a rather shabby pub right beside the inn and we actually ate there. Food was very good, but just look past the rest of the place.
