“Friendly, comfortable, and relaxing place to stay”
Reviewed 11 May 2009

Stayed here for 2 nights with my teenage son and daughter and found it relaxing, enjoyable, and very good value. We had a spacious and very comfortable 3 bed family room. The couple running the guest house were attentive but let you get on with relaxing and enjoying your stay. Situation is an easy 5 min walk from main Carrickfergus attractions. Accommodation should suit a wide variety of people - we had breakfast with satisfied backpackers and retirees.

Stayed just one night last week - absolutely superb, and have already booked five nights in August!

The Keep Guesthouse is very well located, just a couple of minutes walk from Carrickfergus Castle, and less than 10 minutes to the railway station. It is absolutely spotless, with beautifully furnished large rooms, complete with tea and coffee making facilities, and flat screen plasma TV's.

The traditional 'Ulster fry' breakfast is really excellent!

Heather and Ray will do everything they can to assure a perfect stay!

We spent a night at The Keep on our way from Dublin to the Giant's Causeway. We had a wonderful room, very spacious, lovely decorated and clean. It had three big windows with a nice view to the sea. The room had three big beds, a wardrobe and a comfy sofa and a huge flatscreen tv.
The location is ideal, close to the street leading to Belfast, but quiet and close to the town centre (castle, supermarket, cinema, restaurants and pubs) . It is perfect for a nice walk into town or to the harbour.
The Irish breakfast was delicious and with plenty of good things to choose from (tea, coffee, milk, juice, cereal, sausage, ham, eggs, tomato, potato bread, toast, jam, ...).

The owner and employees welcomed us warmly and had a lot of useful tips for our trip.

We definitely recommend this B&B and would go back any time we're around Belfast.
