Beautiful home and rooms. Great breakfast and very hospitable host in giving us directions to local pubs. Within walking distance is a great one or short drive into town. Tea or coffee upon arrival and well marked signs to find it.

The breakfast here is fantastic. Maureen is a wonderful cook...fresh baked bread, eggs and bacon (or salmon), tomatoes, fruit. Really delicious. The one downside is that the house is on a very busy street. The pictures make it look sort of remote, but it's not. I had a lot of street noise in my room. So much so that I...

Maureen was a charming and hospitable lady, who welcomed us to her B&B with freshly made tea & coffee and biscuits & chocolates. She gave us some great suggestions for sightseeing and places to eat. Our room was a good size with ample space to unpack our luggage. Comfortable beds and a good sized bathroom. And what a great breakfast!...

We had a wonderful stay here. The welcome, the beautiful room and 2 night's stay were without a single problem. Maureen, the owner, was very inviting to us eventhough arrived quite late. The breakfast was delicious too. We are looking forward to staying here again when we are back. Thanks again Maureen

Glencairn is a very nice B&B. It's spotless, and cost less than most other B&Bs. It's unfortunate that we couldn't walk to dinner, but we were given a good recommendation for dinner. Maureen did give us a suggestion to include in our itinerary; that was very nice.

We had come down from Northern Ireland on a recommendation from the owner of Valley View Country House, and she didn't disappoint. It's a very nice, quiet, and clean place. The owner is very kind and pleasant. We had a triple room with a bathroom. The lounge and dining room are pretty and very clean.
