Excellent staff, very friendly & our room was superb with views over the bay. We had an evening meal - really, really nice with a complementary Irish coffee after. Breakfast was good & the whole experience very enjoyable. The reception staff gave a good history of the area & things to do.

Gorgeous setting with views onto the Atlantic rolling in to Portballintrae. Situated close to Giants Causeway and Bushmills Distillery..the perfect place to stop for a good lunch, overlooking the ocean between sightseeing excursions.

Just returned from another wonderful 2 night break at the Bayview. My husband and I have stayed here a number of times now and have never been disappointed. The views over the bay are fabulous and the walk to the Giants Causeway is well worth it. There is always a varied menu available in the restaurant and the food is...
