About the hotel
Chris and Jenny Mullen would like to welcome you to Cairn Bay Lodge, a guesthouse for the discerning traveler set in extensive gardens with panoramic views of Ballyholme Bay and Ballymacormick Point Built in 1914 for Belfast City Councellor William Tyrell, The Cairn is a detached seaside villa with classic oak panelling, Dutch fireplaces and wonderful stained glass. His son Air Vice Marshall Sir William Tyrell was surgeon to the Queen Mother and the present day Queen. So proud of the fact that his son held such an illustrious position William Senior had balconies built at both the front and rear of the house in anticipation of a Royal Visit.
Sadly much to his appointment this never materialised. Now it is home to Chris and Jenny Mullen, and daughter Poppy, and guests from all over the world. Good hospitality and relaxation are on offer. Jenny is a trained Beauty Therapist with a salon on the premises and and Chris is in charge of the kitchen with breakfast being his speciality. Help yourself to County Armagh apple juice, seasonal fruits, home-made soda bread, wheaten bread and yoghurt, followed by one of the daily specials such as Baked Irish Goat's Cheese, local oak smoked salmon omelette or Traditional Ulster Grill.

This B & B is one of the best.
The owners were friendly and helpful, our room was huge and overlooked the sea, and the breakfasts were amazing. Both the fresh fruit bowl and the cooked 'Starfish Grill' (full Irish) were brilliant. Maximum marks from us on everything.
Excellent guest house
Delightful house with some history.
Location excellent and "The Jamaica Inn" close by serving good food in the evenings (need to book). We managed without a car (train Belfast- Bangor). Fair but perfectly manageable walk from the station. Our room "balcony suite" was at the rear, quite large with comfortable seating. Small nuisance was some continual barking from a neighbouring dog. We could have done with a few extra days here to browse the weighty six-month volume of "The Times" for 1917. Friendly welcome from staff and overall very good value.
