All I can say is wow! This was the best of the best on our trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. The rooms are beautiful. They even have great, plush towels in the bathroom which we found nowhere else on our trip. The breakfast was the best we had. Eggs used come from their own chickens and everything they served...

What a great write up, thanks so much for taking the time to review us! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much; what a shame it was only one night!

We stayed at The Whins just last week for 4 nights and I would highly recommend it. The room was lovely and comfortable, Niki and Paul are great hosts and it is a very good location for getting around.

I have very little to add that hasn't already been said, wonderful location, lovely service, and a comfortable, well cared-for room. Niki and Paul are a fantastic couple who genuinely care for their guests; and a big shout out for Brian the dog!

This place is wonderful. Very comfortable and clean. Near the Dark Hedges, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, and Dunluce Castle. We arrived early and had sandwiches, scones, and wheaten bread which were the best I had ever eaten. The breakfast was outstanding and I loved the soda farl. Then we had her picnic lunches to go and enjoyed them on the way...

Niki and Paul have created a beautiful, warm, welcoming B&B. We were on hiking tour and Paul picked us up in nearby Ballintoy and drove us to the inn. Then they arranged for a taxi for our kids to go to a local pub to listen to Irish music. And, the eggs that Paul prepared for us for breakfast were...

Five stars really isn't enough for The Whins. Perfect base for the multitude of scenic sites in the area and Niki was so helpful in maximizing the limited time we had available.

We really enjoyed our stay (2 nights) at The Whins B&B. Their location has quick access to nearby towns and attractions, and Niki helped us out by having a stock of menus for different restaurants in nearby Ballycastle to assist us with planning an evening out. And the breakfast menu Niki presented us was AMAZING. We also got bag lunches...
