Interaction with Guests
I usually meet guests on arrival. I am happy to provide lots of info on the area so just ask!
I love company but also I am happy to be doing my own thing.. So you can have as much or as little of my company as you wish.
Although I like to use the sitting room as my own space.
However you are free to use the kitchen and sofa as a living area. With the Rayburn cooker on it is particularly cosy.
There will always be regular / speciality teas, and real coffee freely available at anytime.
For breakfast I offer, granola, some fruit, Irish wheaten bread also white or brown bread from the bakery. Lots of delicious spreads, marmalade, jam, Nutella, peanut butter for your toast. There will also be marmite for those of you that have this addiction!
I have a huge fridge so please feel free to bring your own food stuffs if you have specific food preferences.
The area is fantastic to access local beaches and site seeing on the North Coast. Amenities close to the house are excellent with coffee shops, supermarket, cinema, gym and hotel being just a minutes drive away as is a walk by the river or the forest.
The mews is quiet and picturesque.
The town has a railway station with trains to Derry or Belfast, every hour.
A bus called the Causeway Rambler provides a continual service throughout the day to all the tourist spots along the coast from April until Sept.
There is a local bus service with bus stop a minute from the house which is beneficial during week days but not available after 6pm.
I would advise that you hire a car to explore the areas full potential.
Other Things to Note
There is some public transport along the north coast but it is advisable to hire a car.
Mussenden Temple 15 mins away
Giants Causeway 20 mins
Portrush 15 mins
1 hour by motorway to Belfast
and 35 mins to Derry.
Its worth noting that the train journey from Coleraine to Derry City hosts amazing views with the train traveling close to the waters edge and with views of Donegal in the distance.
You will have free WiFi and by booking you agree not to use this for any illegal activity or downloads.
If you do not plan to have breakfast, then let me know the night before.
Excellent accueil de Méa. Joli chambre propre et bien décorée. Cuisine agréable et bon petit déjeuner. Méa nous a bien conseillés pour nos visites alentours et nous a donné un coude main pour réserver notre nuit dans le Donegal. C'est une bonne étape pour visiter les sites de l'Irlande du nord.
We had a great weekend staying at Mea's double room! The room is plenty big enough for two, with plenty of storage, seating, mirrors, great light, and a lovely soft bed. Everything was really nice and clean and the house is in a nice, quiet and safe area with easy road access to the centre of town, the river, and the coast if you're visiting the Giant's Causeway (definitely recommended!) and other beautiful sites.
Mea and her family couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. She gave us useful travel advice for our arrival and trips out, and generously provided delicious breakfasts for us as well with coffee, tea, fresh fruit, cereal and lots of wheaten bread (my favourite!) Thanks, Mea!
Our stay with Mea was lovely. The room was clean and well equipped. Unfortunately we were running around trying to fit in all the sites during our quick stay so we didn't get to spend much time with Mea. Our brief interactions were extremely positive, Mea is a great host and a lovely person.
We had a wonderful time in Coleraine. Mea is a fantastic host, welcoming and friendly. She made sure that we had everything we needed and gave us great advice about what to do in the area. We also really enjoyed our conversations.
Moreover, she has got a beautiful house and the room is exactly as shown in the pictures, very clean, spacious and comfortable. The location is also great, easy to find, 20/25 minutes away (by car) from the Giant’s Causeway and a big supermarket, some restaurants and other stores are just a short walk away.
We would happily stay with Mea again and wholeheartedly recommend her lovely home.
Lovely house, lovely house and Mea is a really nice Host :)
I did many AirBnB and highly recommend this place.
All the best Mea !
Mea was a wonderful host.
We really enjoyed our stay to her place, the room was comfy.
Mea was nice enough to provide us some piece of breakfast every morning.
If you have some time to spend in Northern Irland, you should definitly go there.

Mea is a doll! My husband and I loved staying with her. She made us feel really welcome and accommodated our late arrival, no problem. And the guest bedroom is beautiful with the most comfortable bed of our entire trip. Hope to visit you again soon Mea!
