"Perfect for a quiet break"

I stayed for 4 nights with my mum, who needed to be able to have wheelchair access. The Bungalow is spacious, clean, has all amenities that you could need. I found all equipment eg, cooker, heating, Tv, dvd player, Shower easy to use. It was lovely to be able to sit out in the private back garden using the Patio set. It was also handy having a Spar shop just 5 mins walk away to stock up if needed. It wasn't to far a walk into town center and to seafront. Though I did find it slightly up hill when pushing wheelchair, but there are some streets less hilly than others, as I discovered. A Trip on the boat to Raithlin cost £12 Adult. I have no hesitation in recommending The Crescent which is set in a lovely quiet residential area , great base for exploring the Antrim Coast. I would also like to thank Jean for all her help.

"Great House"

Myself, husband and 2 children (8 and 6) stayed here for 4 nights. The house was exactly what we needed. It has everything that you would have at home. It was lovely and warm once we got the heat up and running and room sizes were suitable for our stay. The local shop is 3 minute walk away. The beach is lovely at Ballycastle and there is a big playground also near the harbour. We ate in O'Connors pub and the food was great. We found the people so polite and friendly everywhere we went - giants causeway, rope bridge, etc. Would def recommend The Crescent as a base to explore this wonderful part of Ireland. We had fabulous weather to top it all off and we were sad to have to come away. Thanks to the owners of the house always polite and helpful when we spoke to them. Will def be returning at some stage.

"Beautiful home from home."

Beautiful bungalow,in centre of ballycastle,short walk to town centre,we had a small baby and wheelchair,distance was'nt that far. House itself was clean,and had everything you needed,whether that be cooking yourself,or ordering a takeway,owners had all covered all area's,including dvd's to entairtain the children. Town itself is very beautiful,short walk to beach front,or take short ferry to Raithlin Island,for a very relaxing peaceful day,or even stay on island few days. Whatever you decide to do this house,is excellant starting point.

"Lovely Ballycastle"

This was our first trip to Ireland; we arrived early at the property (which was not a problem) and was greeted with a well presented, clean and well equipped property. We had 2 older teenage boys and the space was just about enough for them. The bungalow is within a series of cul-de-sacs which makes it very quiet and private. There is ample off street parking and the rear courtyard garden is very private and not overlooked. The owners provided lots of tourist leaflets for places to visit, restaurant information, ample books and DVD's just for those terrible weather days. There is a local supermarket 5 minutes walk away and the town and sea front are also within walking distance. Ballycaslte itself is a lovely harbour town ideally situated for the Giant's Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Bridge, Bushmills whiskey ditillery and the County Antrim Coastal Route. The people are also some of the most frendliest you will ever meet. We had a lovely time and would recommend the property and the area for any type of holiday.
