We spent only one night but if I returned to the area I would spend more time. The place is clean, very clean and the owners are most helpful. Breakfast is extremely good. If you are in the Bushmills area, this is the place to stay.

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...

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...
