Just a few kind words from some of our customers

If you have anything you would like to ask regarding our accommodation or the surrounding area please do get in touch.

“Excellent weekend had by all in Liscolman and surrounding area.”

We (family) spent a long weekend in this accommodation used as a base to explore the Antrim Coast. It goes without saying that the Antrim coast should be on everyone’s bucket list but the Place Above was excellent, conveniently located to facilitate this and also reasonably priced. It has everything you need including WiFi and a desktop computer for general use. It is spacious and very comfortable and we would have no hesitation in using it again or recommending it to others. The host (Geoff) was very helpful both leading up to our stay and also during. In summary – a gem.

“Comfortable Launch Pad for Resting and Sight Seeing Northern Ireland”

This cozy loft is everything it is advertised to be and more. It is quiet, well kept, close to Giant’s Causeway, the rope bridge, Duneluce castle bush mills, and half a dozen awesome little seaside villages. The Landlord is the kind of guy you’d want to keep in touch with after staying there. Chickens kept at the main house might even lay some eggs for you.

“Fantastic Stay at The Place Above”

My Husband, myself and our two boys stayed here for a week in August. The place is fantastic. Geoff is so welcoming and was there the minute we arrived to show us around. The size of the place was perfect for our family and the boys loved the fact they had a tv in their room 🙂 although they didn’t use it. My son’s loved the Garden and my youngest especially loved the three chickens which he followed round on several occasions clucking at them. The location is perfect for travelling around the Antrim Coast and the Giants Causeway, rope bridge and other attractions are a short car journey away. You know you have stayed in a good place when the boys don’t want to leave and want to go back as soon as possible 🙂

“Excellent location, spacious apartment and wonderful owner.”

We stayed at the property with our 2 children for 3 nights in March 2014. The apartment is located in a very peaceful location and in a easy reach for all the main tourist attractions in the locality. The apartment is light, spacious, comfortable, well decorated and spotless. It also has everything you need to make you feel at home for the duration of your visit. Geoff, the owner, is extremely welcoming, friendly and gives good advices about what to visit in the area. We have stayed in many rental apartments while traveling and this is the best. We woud highly recommend it to anyone as you will struggle to find anywhere better.

“Great location, great apartment, great weekend away”

Myself, my husband and 2 American friends had the pleasure to stay in the Place Above in April for lovely nights. The apartment has every facility you could possibly require. Geoff the host is superb and so friendly. The location is great with tourist attractions roughly 20 minutes drive away. I knew the area well having spent my childhood holidays in Portrush. Mountsandel is just up the road, as is Castlerock beach and Mussenden Temple. I’d recommend having fish and chips in Chequers in Portrush. No visit to The Place Above should not included dinner in the The Tides Restaurant – which Geoff kindly recommended to me. He has a wealth of information in the apartment for you on your arrival. I’ve stayed in many places but the Place Above is by far the best one. His location as I mentioned in perfect. You get to see the stars and are surrounded by peace and quiet. His fresh organic eggs are to die for. I will definitely becoming back.

“Great place”

Stayed here for 3 nights with hubbie and 2 kids. Geoff was very welcoming and friendly. Inside was lovely, this is an upstairs apartment but it is much more – spacious, shower, bath, dvd’s, computer and all mod cons including tvs in the bedrooms which was great for the kids to unwind. The place above is very secure not only for parking but also with kids as they could play outside as located well off the road with a secure garden. Location was great Bushmills less than 15 mins and the dark hedges 15 mins opposite direction. Really enjoyed our stay here

“Excellent location, Great facility”

We had a 5 day break in Northern Ireland and my wife amazingly found this place on line, and what a gem she unearthed. As soon as we arrived in the secluded spot this is located in we knew we had chosen well. Geoff, the owner, gave us a warm welcome and a quick tour of the flat and we could see that all our basic needs were met. We had a very comfortable stay there and recommend this place for any family getaway. It is ten minutes away from the Giants Causeway, 10 minutes from the Dark Hedges, 10 Minutes from Bush Mills and the amazing whiskey distillery and the shops – there’s a Co-op in Bush Mills as well as a another supermarket, and a number of good restaurants. Near the Dark Hedges – used in Game of Thrones, is the Hedges Hotel with a good restaurant. Please try the Red Door coffee house on the way to Ballintoy harbour right next to the Causeway – I rate it the best coffee shop in the UK. Back to the guest house – a well appointed kitchen with separate fridge and freezer, coffee machine, and cooking facilities which are modern and electric. There is a good sized bathroom with shower and bath, a good double bedroom and a twin room. A comfy lounge with Velux windows in the ceiling has a TV with freeview and a DVD player – there are DVD’s in a cupboard which are all family friendly. There is free wifi and a desktop computer. I would return here in a heartbeat.
