Covid-19 Update October 2020

Water's Edge Glenarm B&B.
We hope everyone is keeping well and have found their way safely through these strange and difficult times.

We have been thinking long and hard about how we can safely re-open our B&B and offer the same high standards of service we are so proud to have provided over the past few years. It is therefore with much regret we have concluded it is best for all if we remain closed for this season and will review our plans for 2021 in the new year.

We have really enjoyed welcoming guests to our home and we worked hard to provide the best level of service to each and every guest. We have decided that to adhere to the very strict and necessary processes to keep everyone safe and limit the spread of the virus, our guest experience would be a very different one to what we have been acclaimed for and this makes us uncomfortable.

We are very sad to say, for now, our B&B doors will remain closed to new bookings. We thank everyone for their support and visits over the years, we've had the most amazing time with you all.

The Cafe @ Water's Edge - Open for Takeaway Only

Having successfully re-opened the Cafe @ Water's Edge on Friday 3rd July as takeaway and outdoor seating only, with the change in weather we recognised the need to invite visitors inside and we re-opened our indoor seating area in September.

There were two of us working under new and changing processes to keep us all safe and limit the spread of the virus. We are really grateful to those that supported us and showed patience as we worked to provide the best possible service we could.

We worked hard behind the scenes to ensure compliance with Public Health guidance to minimise the risk of spreading the Covid-19 virus.

Our objective is to provide good service, great homemade cakes and scones, tray-bakes, freshly produced food and an enjoyable experience and at the same time adhere to safe practices.

We really enjoyed seeing you and we were planning to unveil a different but equally enjoyable service through the winter months.

However, following the government's announcement on the 14th of October 2020, in order to try to curb the spread of Covid-19, by limiting non essential travel and restricting hospitality, things have changed.

For the next 4 weeks, we must close our Cafe as a sit in venue. Like many cafes and restaurants, we do have a store cupboard that we do not want to go to waste. We are therefore opening for takeaway only during the next four weeks on a limited basis - Saturday and Sunday. We will also take orders outside of these times for cakes/traybakes and savouries - 24 hour notice required.

We wish you all well and hope to be able to open our doors for you to be seated and enjoy the amazing views and homemade treats @ Water's Edge Cafe.

Email or telephone (+44) (0) 2828 841117 for orders.


Water’s Edge is exactly where the name suggests, at the edge of the intoxicatingly scenic Glenarm Bay on the Causeway Coastal Route (Lonely Planet’s must see destination of 2018).  We are a luxury award winning B&B, Cafe (new for 2020)  and self-catering accommodation mid-way between Belfast and The Giant’s Causeway – Titanic Belfast is just 45 minutes and the Giants Causeway a little over an hour away. Belfast airports are within easy reach, 45 minutes by car and Dublin Airport only 2.5 hours. 

There is something special about our award winning B&B, our home. You can relax in this unique location and gaze out at spectacular views, savour delicious home cooked breakfasts in our new sea view Cafe and receive a very warm welcome.

We have listened to our guests, many of whom preferred a room only option at point of booking so our standard rate is now ROOM ONLY. You can prepay for breakfast as a supplement or alternatively pay for what you eat in our new Cafe

Relax…..this is your time and this is your space come and see for yourself, we look forward to welcoming you to our home
