The Whins

... welcome to The Giant's Causeway Coast and Ballycastle!

Giant's CausewayIdeally located close to the Giant's Causeway between Ballycastle and Bushmills, the perfect base to explore the glorious Causeway Coast and experience Irish hospitality in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

At The Whins B&B Ballycastle, we offer modern, comfortable accommodation in a quiet, rural setting in the heart of the Giant's Causeway Coast. Causeway Cream TeasPerfectly situated in beautiful open countryside we are just a few miles outside the attractive seaside town of Ballycastle with its lovely beach, golf course, friendly pubs and restaurants and regular ferry service to Rathlin Island. Just a short distance too from the beautiful harbour and beach at Ballintoy, instantly recognisable now as one of the locations used in the major TV series Game of Thrones, and situated next to the famous Carrick-a-rede Rope Bridge. We are also within easy driving distance of The Giant's Causeway, Bushmills Distillery, Dunluce Castle, the Glens of Antrim and the Dark Hedges (aka The Kings Road), another Game of Thrones location, and all the many other attractions and lovely seaside towns and villages the Causeway Coast has to offer.

Pet Policy

Whilst we welcome friendly dogs at The Whins (we have one ourselves!), we unfortunately cannot allow them inside the house. Owners are welcome to give them the run of our large, fully enclosed garden (although they must be under supervision, friendly to other dogs and our chickens!) but they must sleep in your car. Please advise us in advance if you want to bring your pet and we can discuss the options with you.
