Review Score: Superb 9.6/10

6 Miles from Crumlin

Meet your host…

Elizabeth McBride

My family and I enjoy meeting guests and sharing their love of Northern Ireland and particularly the Lough Neagh area. My decision to open a B&B in the family home was inspired as it provides an opportunity to talk about N.I, use the wonderful local produce for breakfast and is an excuse to have lots of free range hens in the field and the occasional duck and goose. In the late Spring and Summer the eggs from the latter two are used for baking with pretty good results!

61 Loughview Road
BT29 4ED

Situated on the shores of Lough Neagh , Bay Cottage offers guests the choice of 3 comfortable rooms. One is a double ensuite, one has a small double bed and single bed and has a private bathroom across the corridor.  Both of these are in the house and are furnished with an eclectic mix of antique furniture.  The third has a more contemporary style, has a choice of a superking or twin beds and offers not only an ensuite bathroom but with a private sitting room.  Our breakfasts and optional evening meals use local produce whenever possible.  Parking is available for cars, motorbikes and push bikes.

How to get here

Drive past the International airport (airport should be on the left hand side) straight over the mini roundabouts and you end up on the British Road, which takes you past the large long stay carpark and the freight depot.  It is a very rural road.  Go to the end of the British Road, turn left at the T Junction, then almost immediately right onto the Ballyginniff Road.   This takes you down virtually to the Lough Shore, another T junction, this time turn right onto Loughview Road. Drive along the road, past a cottage and large modern house set back from the road, and you will see Bay Cottage on the right hand side – you cannot miss us as there is a wind turbine in the garden, as well as the hens, ducks and geese.

Our 2 night stay at Bay Cottage was wonderful! Elizabeth is a fantastic cook and breakfasts were great. Elizabeth offered things to do based upon what our plans were that day. Beautiful setting with cows across the road and a pheasant visited the backyard during breakfast one morning. Probably the cleanest place I have ever stayed. It was a nice space, too. Private with a kitchen.

We stayed at Bay Cottage for 2 nights and wish it had been longer! Liz was a gracious and thoughtful hostess, most welcoming and friendly, helpful in every way. Our room was lovely and the breakfast was wonderful!

Elizabeth was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was really good and the rooms were quite clean. A good place to stay 1 or 2 nights, plus Elizabeth gave us the option to pay directly online, which not everyone offers!

This was such a beautiful and peaceful place. This was by far our favorite B&B. We stayed here for 2 nights, and we are so glad we did. Elizabeth was very welcoming. This trip was for a birthday and one of us has to eat gluten free. Elizabeth baked us an amazing GF birthday cake. It was honestly one of the best GF cakes I have ever had as well as a thoughtful gesture. She also gave us recommendations on places to visit including a couple wool shops that were amazing. She recommended the Causeway Coastal Route which is a beautiful drive up the northern coast. The restaurant that she recommended was wonderful as well. The breakfast here was very good. The house is across from Lough Neagh where we saw quite a few different waterfowl including 2 beautiful swans in the lough. If you want a beautiful, comforting and welcoming place to stay for your trip do not hesitate to book with Elizabeth. We will definitely be back for our next trip.
