I arrived in Bushmills via bus, and had to walk through town to Rest A While, which is a pretty long and rough walk. As soon as I got there, Gail opened the door and said, "WHY DIDN'T YA PHONE ME?! I WOULDA COME N PICKED YA UP!" And promptly got me inside and up to my room and brought...

Gail is the best and so is her B&B! It was the coziest, cleanest, and most welcoming B&B of the 7 we stayed in. Rooms are fresh and new, with larger bathrooms than I'd seen elsewhere. Gail, who is funny and very welcoming, provides a fantastic booklet of local info including food and things to do, as well as directions...

We loved our stay here and Gail was the perfect hostess. Food was great, room spotless and we felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. The area is stunning and so much to see and do. We will definitely be back.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited in all my travels. The Rest A While B & B is wonderful. The hostess is most energetic, friendly, welcoming and accommodating... even drove us to the train to the Giant's Causeway when we didn't know how to get there. The rooms are spacious, clean, VERY quiet, and...

Lovely place to stay. Greeted by Gail , the owner, who treats you like she has known you forever, very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Gail was happy to advise on places to visit . The b&b was warm , clean and comfy. Would definitely visit again . Breakfast was very good, good parking and close to visitor attractions.

Having read the earlier reviews it was difficult to imagine that anywhere could be quite as faultless as they suggested. I am happy to confirm that, as of last week, Rest A While is still living up to it's great reputation. A fringe benefit is that you also get to meet other travellers over breakfast (in our case from America,...

We stayed for a couple of nights and were made to feel very welcome by Gail, who could not do enough to help us feel comfortable. She also had loads of tips on where to go and how to save a bit of money in various attractions, which was very helpful. The room was very comfortable and clean, and very...

Met at the door and shown to our beautiful room. What a relief after a night at the Glens Hotel in Cushendall. Don't stay there. Lots of info although probably needs updating. Eat out at the Smugglers Inn just up the road. Excellent. Don't eat at the Scotch House. Just a shame we were only there for one night but...
