Very tasteful and Comfortable rooms with lovely toiletries. Yummy breakfasts and lovely tea/coffee and cake on arrival with treats always available everywhere!! Great hosts who go the extra mile and are always ready to help and chat! Wouldn't stay anywhere else for a relaxing break. It's our favourite comfy bolthole in the North Coast.

We booked Shola on line and were delighted with the total experience. Sharon and David are terrific and the location is great for Giant's Causeway and Royal Portrush. Would love to get back in the height of summer.

Sharon and Dave are, as noted by previous reviewers, excellent hosts. They accommodated our last minute schedule changes with such graciousness and were attentive to all our needs throughout our stay. We booked the Buttercup Room and absolutely loved the view and our room was exactly as pictured on their website. In addition, their property is in close proximity to...

The best B&B by a mile! We stayed for 2 nights as part of my husband's 50th birthday celebrations. We had a beautiful room - the Lavender room - spacious, spotless, so comfortable and fully stocked with gorgeous Irish made bathroom products. Breakfast was fabulous - homemade porter and walnut wheaten bread, fresh coffee or locally brewed Suki tea, and...

Spent another great weekend at Shola. This was our second visit and will definitely not be the last. Dave and Sharon run Shola Bed and Breakfast to a very high standard yet maintain that very homely feel that makes for the perfect relaxing break.
