Award Winning Breakfast

One of the owners, a professional Swiss trained chef, is the winner of Aga-Rayburn National Best Breakfast Award, the judges stating “Old Rectory’s breakfast was quite simply the best in Northern Ireland”.

We offer freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly cut fruit and our own home-made granola and muesli. Our extensive menu also includes vegetarian/vegan/gluten free/ lactose free options.

Our guesthouse uses local and organically produced foods, where possible; we also make our own raspberry jam, whiskey marmalade, wheaten, soda and potato breads, bagels, pancetta scones and potato and apple fadge (potato bread).

What could be nicer than eating a breakfast consisting of freshly squeezed orange juice, porridge laced with whiskey, followed by an Ulster Fry and then toast with home made marmalade, while logs crackle on an open fire?
Dr_Bek_Oz, Brisbane, December 2016
The breakfast is truly awesome with about 15 different options on the menu - I loved the scrambled eggs with salmon and my husband enjoyed porridge with honey and Irish whiskey.

Natasha Lee W, Ontario, October 2016
Breakfast was phenomenal. You pick what you'd like the night before and in the morning come down at your reserved time to be served. The homemade stewed plum yogurt is THE best yogurt I've ever had. The fresh fruit selection and homemade granola available to add too it was so delicious. We would stay here again just for the breakfast alone.
