Set in the picturesque seaside town of Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland, it is located a short walk from the sea front, the magnificent Norman Castle and ancient city walls. There is a large supermarket a short walk away as well as a cinema and local, good quality restaurants. there is a wonderful harbor and a magnificent walk along the seafront, along which there is a very large adventure play area for younger children. There is a good bus service nearby, but the nearest train station (Troopers Lane) is a bit of a trek however such is the level of service provided by the owners I am sure though if you asked they would pick you up!
I received a very warm welcome from my hosts, Raymond and Heather who were in no way put out by my late arrival.
The rooms are spacious, well decorated, and those that I used had en suite facilities. They were spotlessly clean and tidy. The double beds are comfortable and the rooms quiet being fully double glazed. There is tea and coffee making facilities in the room. My work required a very early start, which was outside the normal start timing for breakfast, however this was absolutely no problem for Raymond who got up at the crack of dawn to ensure I was
set up for the day with a quality big 'Full Ulster' breakfast.
In short this is a little diamond of a place to say, perfectly placed, excellent quality and hosts who don't know the word 'No' . Put it at the top of your list!
