This was my first visit, and from the outset Ken and Mary made me feel as though i had known them for years. The rooms are spotless and the breakfasts were superb. The local pubs are only a short walk away, and there are various shops just across the street. I certainly intend to return next year.

Excellent location to explore Antrim county. Kenny and Mary go the extra mile to make you feel at home and the premises are spotless, roomy and everything is to hand. Breakfast was great and served at a time that suited us. Can't find anything to fault with the place. Thanks.

I have stayed in 100's of hotels and B & B's through my work, but Ken-Mar beats them all in every way. You are made to feel right at home the minute you meet Kenny. The rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished and kept immaculate. Mary's cooking is superb. Breakfast is first class, in fact everything about Ken-Mar is first...

Within moments of arriving at Ken-Mar you’re treated like a friend and not just ‘a customer’. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless and the little touches like providing cakes or biscuits daily, plus plenty of local travel information are appreciated. Although located a few minutes walk from the centre of Ballymoney, the room was so quiet you thought you were...

We luckily ended up in Ballymoney at Ken-Mar House, knocked on the door, and Ken let us right in. Immediately we saw the Irish hospitality everyone had told us about....

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights last year on a weekend visit to the Giants Causeway. I am only getting around to writing a review now!

We stayed with Ken and Mary on a recent trip to visit the coast of Northern Ireland. Ken-Mar House is in a great small town away from the busy sites on the coast. It is in a great location to walk to the high street and dining. They have off street parking with a separate entrance from the car park...

Kenny and Mary were super friendly and helpful. The place was spotless and breakfast was delicious. These two would help in any way to make your stay enjoyable. Very good location to see many main attractions in Northern Ireland.
