  • "This was our first visit to Carnlough, and won't be our last."

    There was adequate on-road parking, either outside the house or just around the side, and although it's across the road from a small estate, it was generally very quiet. Furnishings and equipment were both of excellent quality - although the light shade in the front room should come with a 'low headroom' warning! Beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, crockery and other equipment. However, we did have to buy some pint glasses - strangely not the first time this has happened in holiday cottages. There was also nothing suitable in which to make glasses of squash etc for our daughter. We know there must regular breakages of such items, but a complete lack of them for visitors who aren't able to bring their own is a little inconvenient. We travelled far and wide during our stay and found the location very handy for the likes of Belfast and the Giant's Causeway. The area's roads are generally excellent and refreshingly quiet, and we'd also recommend a drive south along the A2 as far as the Mourne Mountains. It will be good when we return at a different time of year because then we hope all the local shops - especially the Morelli's ice cream parlour less than five minutes' walk away - will be open for longer hours! Just a general observation for visitors from the mainland - many of the local Spar stores in the area - of which there are quite a few - aren't licensed to sell alcohol, which dad found a little disconcerting. We will certainly be back to Cranny Corner - we are just trying to work out when we can fit it in!

  • "Overall, a really good holiday with lots to do in the local area."

    The accommodations were excellent, with only one exception; there were no curtains at the bedroom windows, only Venetian blinds. This is ok in winter but not so much in June.

  • "The house was very clean, tidy and well serviced."

    The location excellent for exploring the East coastal road with its wide and varied attractions. The village was very clean and tidy and offered various small cafes and a couple of pubs. The local Spar had all the necessary groceries you would need. Larne is the nearest large town with major outlets. The locals were all friendly no matter where we were. Would highly recommend both Cranny Cottage and Northern Ireland as a holiday destination.

  • "Lovely house, just right for two or three people."

    Well decorated and furnished. In a good place for exploring the Antrim Coast and not too far from Belfast. Handy to have a grocers at the bottoof the road. The weather changed as I arrived and the house was quite cold. But was helped by phoning the local contact who told me how to adjust the heating.
