Hi, great to hear your family enjoyed another stay at Fools Haven and the little ones love playing in Puffins Perch so much. We would also suggest visitors would find having a car a great way to visit our Country and tailor their drives around their interests. But the Train and Bus are a great excuse to give the driver a day off and also for visiting the City of Belfast. Keep intouch and we would love to have you as neighbours again. Best wishes, Alison & Robbie
