Ardaghmore Bed and Breakfast Guest House
35 North Street, Ballycastle, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
The Ardaghmore Guest House was built as a private home in the late 1800s. It is extremely comfortable and clean. The location is on the Causeway Coastal Route, ideal for visiting Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and Dunluce Castle.
Ardaghmore Guest House is on Quay Hill in Ballycastle, with a view across the ocean all the way over to Rathlin Island and Fair Head. I am told I was also seeing Scotland. I could look down toward the harbor and kids on the beach and a park.
Directly across from Ardaghmore Guest House is the Marconi Monument. The first commercial wireless telegraph transmission was made between Ballycastle and the East Lighthouse on Rathlin Island.
Ardaghmore Guest House has kept the Victorian historic architecture, but the house has been maintained and carefully improved. I really appreciated hot, hot water and central heating! I will never take it for granted again!
The house is popular. My hostess, Genevieve McLernon, apologized that the only room available was smaller, in the back of the house. I loved it! I could not see the water, but the mountains are beautiful! It was cozy, clean and comfortable. The bed was wonderful.
I had my own bathroom.
Any time I wanted, I could make a pot of tea. There were public rooms. The lounge had a fire. But, I had tea snuggled up in my cosy room. Genevieve gave me some decorating magazines to read. When I went home she let me keep them. She really made my stay comfortable.
I left early to watch the sun come up, just in time for milk delivery and had a delicious breakfast.
Ireland has the best milk.
