Meet your host…

Dorothy Allen

I have been sharing my home with guests for the past three years and I enjoy meeting and exchanging stories with them. I have an interest in Genealogy and over the last couple of years have helped a number of families discover the history behind their ancestral background. I do my utmost to ensure guests will experience the true meaning of Irish hospitality. Having a sound knowledge of Ireland, I am happy to help with Itinerary plans to make your visit special.

Rose cottage Bed and Breakfast is a Georgian-style home full of character with spacious gardens, a cosy ambiance and stunning views of Belfast Lough. To the rear is an uninterrupted view over our family farm with a backdrop of the escarpment of Knockagh Hill. A varied breakfast offers something for everyone from a tasty traditional Irish breakfast, or bacon and brie croissant to Eggs Benedict or porridge oats spiced up with apple and cinnamon. My homemade bread and damson and cardamom preserve is a joy. Rose Cottage lies along the world famous A2 coastal route to the Giant’s Causeway and other must-visit attractions. We are the ideal base for exploring beautiful Antrim and Ireland’s many hidden gems.

Very nice, friendly stay. Dorothy was an excellent host. She gave a lot of very helpful advices e.g. restaurants, sight-seeings, ... The only thing wich we could think about to to better would be shower toilet ensuit and not separatly. Neverthe less we would even chose the Rose Cottage B6B again if we travelled to N.I. again. Kind Regards Huebrt
