Stayed here on the first night of a walking trip along the Causeway Coast. Owners Berkeley and Claire were wonderfully welcoming and helpful. Most of our walk the first day turned out to be largely along roads so it was suggested we might like to visit Rathlin Island instead.

Though our room was quite basic and almost plain, the overall experience was anything but, and that was largely due to the hosts' personal charm and helpful, interactive manner. We stayed three nights, and throughout, they were totally personable, seeming to work extremely hard

The guest house was close to the water and had everything we needed, including a delicious breakfast. The hosts were very helpful and gave us some suggestions and directions to Murlough Bay which we thoroughly enjoyed!

"The main road in August can be busy so if you can get a room towards the back would be the best if you are a light sleeper."
"All of the rooms that we saw were good. Share bathrooms worked well"
"Sounds like it's best to stay on the non-hostel side"
"An Caislean is on a quiet street. You will enjoy peace and calm here on any floor."
