Lonely Planet review
Originally two guesthouses, now linked by a covered walkway, An Caislean has a luxurious lounge, a summer tea room and restaurant, and a warm and welcoming family atmosphere. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, if a bit creaky in the floorboard department, but the trump card is the location, just a few minutes' walk from the beach.
Our independent authors have visited An Caislean Guesthouse and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in Ballycastle.
