Ursa Minor Sour Dough Breads

We use sourdough bread from Ursa Minor which is made using only 3 ingredients - organic flour, water and salt. It is a slow process (around 36 hours) but this helps the gluten to breakdown and become more digestible. It is NOT gluten free, but people who live a ‘gluten free’ lifestyle are finding they don’t have them same issues they would normally have from eating processed breads.

Susannah Creaney

I emailed a few days ago to ask about Vegan options and Cormac could not have been more accomodating. He emailed back with three options that all sounded delicious. I opted for the vegan shepherds pie and sweet potato fries which was super tasty. The portions are huge and my two friends also enjoyed their meals. I really appreciated having several options (although I had to decide on this in advance). Friendly and welcoming place would definitely recommend!

Megan Elizabeth

Popped in for a meal with my mum (who has been a number of times) this evening. Lovely decor inside. Really loved the booths and the Bushmills bar stools! Food was absolutely delicious. Goujons and Hake were gorgeous and the portions were very generous. Lovely staff and atmosphere. Look forward to my next visit. Couldn't fault it!

Catherine Smyth

Ate and drank in O'Connor's Bar several times during a recent trip to Ballycastle. The service is spot on, as is the Guinness and the food is even more spot on. Cannot fault it. Thank you to the lovely girls and guys for making us feel so welcome.
