“Ideal Location”
Reviewed 19 July 2010

for exploring the Antrim Coast. The hotel sits in the middle of Carnlough village on the busy A2 road. Parking immediately opposite in their private car park. An old coaching inn, built in 1848, it retains it's old fashioned demeanour but with modern facilities. The inn was once owned Sir Winston Churchill.

Don't expect anything to happen too fast, but everyone very pleasant and helpful. Lovely reception and staircase leading to comfortable rooms. There is a restaurant and bistro serving food most of the day, including `High Tea'. Good range of menu and well presented. Our room was sizeable (two large beds locked together) with ensuite and small entrance foyer. Coffee/Tea making in room and TV (although very small). We looked out over a school yard at the front but despite being on the main road we got a good night's sleep.

Great base for exploring the Glens of Antrim or as a stopover on thecoastal road.

My daughter & I decided to drive up to the North of Ireland--from Dublin--to see the Giant's Causeway. Hoping that 'the luck of the Irish' would rub on us, we looked at the hotel listings and picked the Londonderry Arms--praying that we would not be disappointed.

And true enough, we were not! We were given such a big and lovely room on the second floor with a big & clean bathroom. Ours was an ocean view--lovely!

We also discovered the lift a few feet from our room. It would have been real helpful if the nice lady manning the reception had mentioned this to us before we lugged our two big suitcases up the two flights of stairs!

After we dropped-off our bags, we decided to immediately drive up to the Giant's causeway, hoping to be back before it got dark. Of course getting lost in Ireland was to be expected. We got back to our hotel by 10:30pm--and went to the Chinese take-out across the street, only to realize that they only accepted pounds. We totally forgot the fact that we were now in British territory. Tired and hungry, and with 15 minutes to spare before the take-out shop closed,we rushed back to the hotel to inquire about getting some of our dollars changed to pounds. And sure enough that nice lady at the desk managed to do just that.

Although our oceanview room was facing the street, traffic was so minimal and we had a good quiet night's sleep ready to tackle the next day's drive to the south of Ireland.

Breakfast was the usual Irish fare served in a bright and pleasant room by the front of the hotel. We managed to explore a bit more of this charming hotel before starting our drive to the South.

Our drive from Dublin to the North was filled with a lot of wrong turns where we ended up miles and hours away from where we should have been. But we managed to meet some very nice people who helped us get back on track. I must say that having such a nice, clean & quiet place to stay in after such an adventurous day was the icing on our cake.

And we did have that Irish luck we so hoped for--the Londonderry Arms did not disappoint!

We stayed here for 2 nights, the open fires and authentic old style bar made me feel totally relaxed. The meal was included in the price and was tasty and quick. There is not much to do in Carnlough itself but plenty of nice places to drive to, the reception staff are really helpful and give great advice on where to go. The nicest touch was when the owner came over to us and thanked us for visiting!!

My party of 15 were very well looked after for our 1 night stay. We had to plan many weeks before, but the subsequent changes were dealt with without fuss. We had good well presented food and all my party said the beds were very comfortable and we were treated to good service from the initial booking through to our departure

Staying at the Londonderry Arms on one of the AXA insurance offers, we found the hotel to be exceptional value for money. The room was comfortable and it was quiet at night. There was a varied menu and the food was good. The drink prices in the bar were not excessive compared to other places we stayed at. The staff was efficient and friendly and the hotel was ideally placed for exploring along the coast and the charming small towns and villages in the nine Glens of Antrim. Access to the free WIFI was great to connect to the internet and access my emails
