The Old Schoolhouse Inn was a fitting stop for this retired teacher. The host were brilliant. We were soaking wet, and our host showed us a perfect room for drying out our coats- it worked like a charm. The room was comfortable, and warm. The breakfast was delightful, and relaxing. Thank you,

Perfect location. Close to everything, yet quiet country setting. Large room with comfortable beds. Very clean. Great breakfast. Terry was very helpful with suggestions for local sites and restaurants. Too bad we only stayed one night.

What a beautiful B&B, this is how they should all be. The hosts were very friendly and engaging and the food was spectacular. The rooms were very clean, large and quiet. There were several awards from the culinary industry for good reason. Terry and Avril's passion for cooking was obvious. This is definitely a spot we will return to on our next visit to the Belfast area.
