This is the third time we have booked Shola for our university reunion. We are seven busy mums who have 19 kids between us (16 of them being boys!) and we enjoy the treat of being spoiled. From homemade cake by the fire on arrival, to the delicious breakfast and everything else in between it's just exactly the place to...

Warmth and genuine hospitality throughout our stay, the detail in the small things was a delight, ie bathroom products, everything home-made, local produce showcased. The room Buttercup was cosy and quaint. It was lovely meeting and sharing friendly conversation with the other guests as well, all like minded people , appreciating the high standard of homegrown NI tourism.

Stayed at Shola on an overnight for the first time recently. This is a beautiful small intimate B&B in the country. We were met with a friendly smile and warm welcome. Sharon the owner offered us tea and coffee on arrival with home baked goodies which were lovely especially in front of a blazing fire - so good. The rooms...

We came to Shola in January. We were greeted with a warm smile and a blazing hearth, complete with a hot cup of tea and homemade treats. Comfy chairs and soft music were so welcome after a long drive. Our room was spacious with soaker tub and shower. The room was tastefully decorated and the corner niche was full of...

Stayed at Shola for one night on a January evening. Was curious what a B&B rated second in world last year would be like. Arrived later than expected due to a flat battery on my motorcycle, but was welcomed by Sharon on arrival and shown to the most lovely room after passing through the lovely hallways adorned with art work,...

We enjoyed a thoroughly warm and genuine welcome for our 2nd stay at Shola, and it was just as relaxing and charming as our first. The breakfasts remain a real treat and are worth the trip in themselves. We look forward to making this an annual visit.

What a truly relaxing break in Shola, Sharon was a delightful host, very welcoming and greeting us with a cup of tea! Our room was very tastefully decorated, comfortable and quiet.

From the moment we arrived at Shola there was a real sense of being welcomed into someone's (beautiful!) home. On a cold and dark winters afternoon we were greeted with fresh tea and coffee and home baked bushmills fruit loaf. The place itself is immaculately clean with much thought given to every detail. Rooms have lovely touches like locally made...

Sharon and David were so welcoming. Lovely home made fruit cake, shortbread, and coffee on arrival. They went the extra mile, gave us a lift into Portrush, although it is walkable, provided wine glasses in bedroom without asking when she noticed we'd been using bathroom glasses. Lovely home made bread, granola. Attention to detail makes this venue so lovely. Lots...
