We stayed here before an early morning flight and were so happy we did! What a charming hotel, literally 5 minutes from the airport. The owner was gracious and made a delicious breakfast for us, and had great advice for us on the local area. Highly recommended!

Elizabeth who runs the B&B was wonderful. She offered to pick us up at the airport, which is only about a 10 minute drive from her house but the two nights we stayed at the B&B we never heard an airplane. She was very courteous and generous with resources for the area, and also information on the local area without... More

This is a very nice B&B in a very rural setting overlooking Lough Neagh. We booked the more spacious blue room as we are a family of three. From the very first moment I booked we were in contact and we were provided with information whenever I had a question about the area. The room was very clean and comfortable... More

We recently spent four nights at Bay Cottage, which we chose because of its central location for our requirements and because of the excellent reviews it has received on TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed. We stayed in the Hayloft apartment and although we chose to have bed & breakfast, we could easily have self-catered there. Elizabeth made us very welcome and... More

Lovely stay at the Hayloft - very comfortable, warm and clean. Excellent spot to visit all our family in N Ireland. Elizabeth and Norman made us very welcome and breakfast on our departure was a lovely traditional Irish breakfast and a good choice of teas, Irish bread and local fruit preserves. Would highly recommend.
