1. Yummy room in the avenue B&B (from USD 67)

Ballycastle is known for its nature and bustling town life. The apartment is situated close to the Giant’s Causeway, Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge and many Games of Thrones (GOT) filming sites. For those of you who marvel at the amazing geography in GOT, Ballycastle is the place for you. The apartment is also within walking distance to town, and the host can recommend some good pubs and restaurants nearby. You will share a room with other guests, which allows for some socializing if you are a solo traveller, or simply wish to interact with some other people. There is a shared bathroom, but the host provides a bathrobe for privacy and convenience. The host’s dog also occasionally hangs around, so do pet her if you see her around. A supposedly terrific breakfast is also provided by the host, so look forward to that with your cup of tea in the morning!
