Brilliant - location, host, room and breakfast!

We stayed for 2 nights in Sept 2018 and were met by a wonderful host Tom, who quickly and easily made us feel at home. The access to our accessible room was great and the room itself and the wet room shower room were brilliant for our needs as my partner is a wheelchair user. We also enjoyed the lovely decking which was accessible via french windows from our room and it overlooked the woods behind the house and the sea in front. Breakfast was amazing and set us up for the day. The road outside was very quiet too so very little traffic affected the peace and quiet of the surroundings as we watched a host of butterflies in the bushes. It's important to note that the place is situated in Carnlough, on Tower Road just near St Killian's college, so it's just outside of Ballymena and this will help you find it if you're not a Northern Ireland local.

Pros: Everything.

Cons: Would be worth putting in the full address, to help visitors find it. I suggest adding Tower Road, Carnlough (near St Killian's college).

Location: Everything about the coast road - every inch is great, particularly Giant's causeway, rope bridge, dark hedges, loch Neagh etc.

    Great accommodation

    Our stay at UR Needs Holidays was very pleasant and peaceful. Tom and his wife were very hospitable and could not do enough for us. Delicious breakfast was served each morning. We also had a lovely room facing the water and it was only a short and beautiful drive into Carnlough to have our meals. Would recommend and stay there again.
