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).

Customers Breakfast Reviews

From our Trip Advisor/ Google reviews
Ella M, Edinburgh, UK, March 2018
Breakfast was a huge selling point as we're veggie/ pescetarian and the choice is huge - this isn't normally the case.
Sarah C, Gorey, May 2017
The breakfast is superb, with their own homemade granola followed by scrambled eggs, with smoked salmon. They even had a small lemon juice squeezer, all presented so elegantly
Joanne Hughes, April 2018
The breakfast is divine, do yourself a favour and try everything on the menu if you can, you won’t be disappointed. I recommend the Baked eggs. All the ingredients are locally sourced and fresh.
Andrew C, March 2018
The breakfasts were a highlight, I particularly enjoyed the home made bagels!
Rockin_RR, Vancouver, March 2018
It has everything you need, from spacious, comfortable clean rooms, great location, and an extensive breakfast selection that is ample and absolutely delicious.
Kbw2017, Wisconsin, February 2017
Breakfast was delicious – they have an extensive menu (you choose the night before), including good vegetarian options.
Tonyjday, UK, January 2017
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?
Gerard Jones, February 2018
Loved breakfast, the food was amazing, freshly cooked and they tailored it to what I specifically wanted.
Jaaz1, Alnwick, UK, August 2017
The breakfast menu is extensive and you are requested to make your selections the night before, in order to accommodate the plethora of choices; something to look forward to as you slumber peacefully in one of the delightful rooms.
Mike H, January 2018
A superb breakfast with vegan options is a real bonus.
DebbieinLondon096, London, UK, February 2018
Hubby tells me his Ulster breakfast was his best ever cooked breakfast so very high praise. My scrambled eggs and salmon were delicious and we both enjoyed the home made soda bread and toast.
Calumm33, Inverness, UK, July 2017
The crowning glory of our stay was the breakfast. Freshly made, each morning to an order made the previous evening, with fresh fruit salad, the usual cereals, freshly made orange juice and the breakfast itself should satisfy any taste. It certainly met with our approval and added a few pounds to the waistline.
