We loved this B and B because it was not your typical close to the city location. It was about 20 minutes outside of Belfast but being out in the country gave us a glimpse of a different Irish lifestyle. The location was spacious, the hosts very professional, our room had a wonderful queen bed and ...
Mary greeted us with warmth and humour. The room was bigger than expected and beautiful with an amazing view of the coast. Breakfast was excellent and the family was very approachable and interesting. Mary made some wonderful suggestions for food and drinks.
Was a nice hotel. Swimming pool nice also kids friendly. Food was good. Rooms were too warm so none of us slept much even with windows open. Though there was a bar, lounging area was not enough. It was taking up by a large group that stayed so no space for others. Decor is a little dated getting. ...
This is a B&B rather than a hotel - a key was left so we could let ourselves in. We knew where we had planned to go for the evening, but as the host was not on the premises, an information pack in the room would be useful.
Initially thought I had made a poor choice due to building works going on in the area but I should not have been concerned. Hotel was ideal location for visiting all the sites up the Antrim coast and only a short drive into Belfast and Carrickfergus. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance ...
Antrim is located just 18 miles outside Belfast, a location which draws many visitors keen on sampling the attractions of the capital city without having to pay the somewhat steeper prices. With two airports located less than a 30-minute drive away – Belfast International Airport and George Best Belfast City Airport – Antrim attracts travellers from all over the world, and its appeal extends far beyond the proximity of Belfast.
The centre of Antrim itself is a bustling market town, rich in character and history and packed with traditional shops, pubs and buildings. While exploring Antrim on foot is a fascinating and pleasurable experience, the countryside surrounding the town is some of the most spectacular in Ireland, with the lakes, forests and hills of County Antrim giving way, further to the north, to the spectacular scenery of the Atlantic Coast.
The combination of urban and rural appeal means that Antrim is popular with a wide and disparate selection of visitors. For many people it is a convenient base from which to travel and explore the cultural and commercial attractions of Belfast, while others will enjoy the chance to enjoy natural attractions such as the waters of Lough Neagh. In light of this, the accommodation in Antrim runs from basic hostels catering to backpackers needing simple bed and board, to luxury country lodges offering spa facilities and family-friendly hotels catering to holidaymakers with children.
For most people, the choice of accommodation they book into will be based upon factors such as the size of their party and the reason for their stay. Keen golfers, for example, might find it convenient to stay in an establishment close to or even adjoining one of the area’s many golf courses, while a guesthouse or bed and breakfast near to the main roads heading north will make exploring the Antrim coast quick and easy. What many people now demand as a standard amenity, however, is the provision of WiFi in their hotel.
It’s surprising to think that just a few years ago the issue of Wi-Fi wouldn’t have played any part in deciding which hotel to stay in. The truth of the matter, however, is that people now spend so much of their life either online or utilising digital communication that the presence of Wi-Fi is often a make or break issue.
Initially, a WiFi connection will be invaluable if you wish to check the opening times and entry fees of local attractions such as Carnfunnock Country Park and the Clotworthy Arts Centre Centre. There are few things more frustrating than travelling to an attraction only to discover it isn’t open for another couple of hours, particularly if you have a couple of excited children in your party.
Another plus point of Wi-Fi access is the ease with which it enables you to stay in touch with people back home. Whether this simply means the convenience of being able to update them on your days out in the Irish countryside, or the reassurance of being able to check on the wellbeing of older relatives or young children, a Wi-Fi connection will put your mind at rest.
