Bay Cottage Bed & Breakfast

Crumlin, Antrim, BT29 4ED

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

Bay Cottage offers guests the choice of two comfortable bedrooms (one ensuite, one with private bathroom) and the use of a cosy sitting room, furnished with an eclectic mix of furniture or a contemporary apartment - all with views of Lough Neagh. Breakfast and the optional evening meal use local produce whenever possible. This includes our own eggs from our free range hens and seasonal vegetables and fruit. Parking is available for a variety of transport ranging from cars to canoes, including motorbikes! An insulated kennel and run is available for canine guests.

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 favorite B&B from the trip! The view of the lake from the home is beautiful! The room was more than a room it was an apartment complete with galley kitchen, dining area, living room and private bath. Breakfast was exceptional whether you made a hot or cold selection. We particularly enjoyed the wheaten bread, which Elizabeth explained is unique to each family in Ireland! Elizabeth was a truly lovely hostess from start to finish. She made us feel so welcomed and provided information about our excursion to Belfast that made the trip even more special. Thanks to Elizabeth’s suggestion to stop by St.George’s Market, we were able to meet a woman who hand makes wool sweaters, which had been difficult to find throughout our trip! We also loved all the animals at the home particularly gypsy! Would highly recommend and love to visit again! Thank you, Elizabeth!

I would give this b&b 12 stars ! We really enjoyed our visit in north Ireland like sleeping at Elizabeth's place. Very welcoming house with everything you need. We felt like it was our little home out there. Very funny fly eater ducks on the yard... superb breakfast even for "vege" people that we are :) Thanks again Elizabeth !!

We spent 3 delightful nights and found it comfortable and well appointed. The welcome was very warm. We stayed in the hay loft and loved the kitchen and sitting room. Could not have asked for more. The ride to Belfast was quick and easily done. The home itself is in a very calming country location with a great view.

What a find!!! So remote, yet so central! 10 mins from the Belfast airport, but right on a large Lough on a country road with a pub 1 minute away, Park n Ride into town just 10 mins away,d great pubs & food 5 mins away!!! Fantastic, homecooked, local foods prepared by Elizabeth who obviously enjoys her semi-new career of running a B&B! She was a amazing hostess who directed us wisely about our approach to Belfast and then our trip and stops en route to Dublin. We (2 couples) thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Bay Cottage.

Elizabeth made a delicious cook to order breakfast, with fresh ingredients and home baked breads! Our room was cozy and the bathroom was spacious and just across the hall. The view of the lake from our bedroom was a bonus.
