“Perfect accommodation”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have just returned from a weekend stay at the Swallows in Ballycastle, the house was huge and easily accommodated 9 of us with room to spare and in a perfect location too with everything you could possibly need in the house, even down to a pool table. The owner (Maureen) was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We were in a group of over 30 people in total staying in various houses in Ballycastle for a family holiday and Maraid who cares for the house was amazing, she could not do enough for us all, even down to catering for 30 people on Saturday night at a moments notice, providing fabulous home cooked dishes and desserts which were demolished by all and at fabulously reasonable prices too, cannot recommend her catering service or this house highly enough and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Wow what a fantastic house. We stayed as a party of 10 and there was plenty of room for more. We catered one night in the house for 33 with plenty of room for everyone. Maraid the house keeper was absolutely lovely and could not be more helpful, she does outside catering which was fantastic for us, the food was to die for and such good value would highly recommend her. Maureen the owner is lovely and very obliging. Would not hesitate in booking the swallows again x

“Wonderful family home from home”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

An excellent family holiday rental for all age groups from young to old. The house was like a tardis when we entered and the lovely card and hamper left by Maureen was very welcoming. Everything that you could possibly need was there with lots of extras including DVD's, board games,outdoor garden furniture, barbeque, bicycles, wetsuits, the list is endless. The bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable and enough showers to accommodate everyone. The only negative I would have is the main road which we found quite dangerous but obviously this is out of the owners control you just have to be careful driving in and out. I also have to mention Mairead who was on the end of the phone for any queries or problems we had and dealt with them immediately. She even left down some home made scones which were delicious and lasted about five minutes with our large group. Overall would highly recommend and are considering booking for next year if all is well with my 91 year old Dad who had a fabulous time.
