Not worth staying for, you can see the local sights in no time and enjoy the pub. But the hostel is over priced, dirty and will be one of your worst nights sleep. Owner is not interested in providing customer service at all

I've stayed at Sheep Island View Hostel several times in the past while touring Ireland. You can't really review just the hostel itself, which is quite nice. You have to take into consideration its location: Ballintoy, the view of Sheep Island, and the views (on a clear day) of Scotland, the harbor, the church, and all of the other sights...

I had a very nice night here, but forgot my e-reader in my room when I left. When I contacted Sheep Island View about it they were very helpful and I got it back quickly. I am very grateful for how concerned they were and would absolutely recommend staying here!

After graduating from University my friend and I took a trip around the UK.

This is the most amazing hostel!! The view is beautiful and the owners very friendly. The rooms are very clean and well-maintained. Just a short walk from the Carrick-A-Rede bridge and the Ballintoy Harbour. The bus stop is just around the corner, so traveling to the Giants Causeway or the next town over is very easy. Complimentary tea and coffee...
