Very Good8.0
B&B style as opposed to Hotel.
Entered the Restaurant as opposed to accommodation and quickly sorted and greeted by a lovely hostess. Shown our room which was large and well set out with a very spacious Bathroom. We were given a list of features to visit by hostess which was well researched and received, visiting the local Castle are which is now a WWC area. Really pleasant wandering and great coffee. Dining that evening we were well cared for by the las in charge of Restaurant and we were served a meal which would not be out of place in top City area. Next morning, slight down with shower over bath unable to be set at consistent temp, spiking occasionally. Breakfast was freshly cooked and excellent. Toured the district visiting Antique stores, there are a few in close proximity and marred only slightly by rain. Great bed again providing a sound night sleep, shower issue again, but fantastic breakfast. Hostess again offering suggestions we ventured back to Belfast, markets on Mothers Day and different accommodation.

Another old schoolhouse
Very close to water bird and wetland sanctuary as well a being within a very easy drive to Belfast. Would be a very convenient location to stay whilst visiting Belfast provided you have your own transport. It will be even better if/when the restaurant reopens however it is close to other eating establishments
