Bay Cottage is a friendly, family run B&B and is one of the quietest Bed and Breakfasts close to Belfast International Airport. We have comfortable rooms with wonderful views, cater for vegetarians, vegans and other dietary requirements, have off road parking and can accommodate bikes, motorbikes, canoes and dogs. 

Bay Cottage is ideal for those wishing to have a base for touring N.I, either for work or pleasure or for those who just want a quiet break. Though we are on the shores of Lough Neagh it is only a 30 minute drive to Belfast city centre, 25 minutes to Ballymena or Lisburn, 50 to the Giant's Causeway and we are half way between Antrim and Crumlin (10 minutes in opposite directions). We are happy to do runs to the local public transport links and the airport. There is space for cars, dry storage for bikes, motorbikes, canoes and sports equipment. We also have a kennel and run for visiting dogs. 

Breakfast is prepared using local produce which includes our own free range eggs and pork products from the rare breed pigs kept during the summer months. Evening meals are by arrangement and guests can opt for a main meal or a light supper, time arranged to be mutually convenient. Please mention any dietary requirements when booking. We use local produce whenever possible. This and our wind turbine and recycling strategies are part of our support for the Green Tourism Scheme.
