My wee house is nestled in the seaside town of Whitehead, the beginning of the scenic coastal road to the Giants Causeway! Use my place as your base & see all of Co.Antrim!. More than 2 people? I have 2 double guest rooms, enough space for 4.
Ideal location:
5 min walk from the train station to Belfast.
25 min by car to Belfast.
30 mins from both major airports.
10 mins by road or rail connection for Larne - Scotland ferry.
Check in from 6pm, if arriving earlier, let me know the day before.

The space

This listing is for my bright and sunny front bedroom and the bathroom is just down the hall. Its a big comfy double bed with a small seating area.

Check out my other bedroom in the photos, if you are more than two people.
Both rooms are ideal for two couples or a bunch of friends or family traveling together.

Guest access

My home is a two storey Victorian terraced house, with front door access. The two guest bedrooms and guest bathroom are all located on the first floor. Your breakfast will be served for you downstairs in the morning or if you prefer a tray in your room, I am happy to oblige. It is not possible to cook meals in my kitchen or use the dining area other than for breakfast, unless we make a special arrangement. This is because there is limited space in the ground floor. Guests are very welcome to make coffee and tea at any time.
A house key is available, so you can come and go as you wish!
I have a seating area out in my back courtyard for anyone who smokes!

Interaction with guests

I live and work on the ground floor, so I am nearly always around if you have any queries and I'll be very happy to give you tips on where to go and what to do.

Our second stay with Gill and it was as good as we remembered the first time - which is not always the case when re-visiting anywhere. Hospitality and breakfasts are more than anyone could expect or wish for. Gill is a perfect host and we would recommend a stay with her unreservedly.

Gill's house is a unique home reflecting her artistic skills and travels in every room. The bedrooms are beautifully furnished and comfortable with a guest bathroom on the same floor. Gill is a wonderful hostess who is happy to cook up an Ulster breakfast or pancakes and to recommend places to eat/visit in nearby Carrickfergus and Belfast. The house is in a quiet residential street and well-placed for sight-seeing along the Ards Peninsular, a beautiful coastline. Highly recommended.

Gill made my daughter and I very welcome from the moment we arrived. The rooms and bathroom were extremely clean and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing and set us up for the day perfectly.

Welcoming, friendly and homely b&b. Gill even put a wash on for us, after a muddy escapade!

Gill (And George) were really lovely hosts! Couldn't recommend their arty home enough, and very close to the sea and she has plenty of suggestions for places to walk. :)

Hi there!
I am a 57 year old mother, artist and designer and I speak english and danish.
After three decades abroad, I am back again in N.Ireland, having grown up here. I´m into great food, reading, music and the arts and love to go on long walks along the coast here with my jack russell Georgie. What more can I say, I´m not into too many rules, my motto for life is to "be happy and treat others as you would have them treat you".
