HERE’S the inside scoop.

Hundreds if not thousands of people in the north coast area – currently as far south as Cloughmills – probably have at least 99 good reasons to avail of a home delivery from the Dessert Bar in Ballycastle.


Regulars have described the straight-to-their-door friendly service as bringing them a big sprinkling of happiness during the lockdown.

To ensure ice cream fans don’t miss out on the mouth-watering delights of The Dessert Bar the family-run firm have been taking to the road with their ice cool taste sensations.

Their specially-prepared delivery bundles are going down a treat with families across the north coast.

So whether it be the £10 Ice Cream Happy Kit; the £15 Cloud Kit Kit or the £20 Dessert Bar Dream – the Dessert Bar have it licked!

Meanwhile, the Dessert Bar’s premises at Ballycastle seafront re-opened last weekend with strict social distancing measures in place.

Proprietor Keith Douthart said: “We will be opening weekends only to allow time to analyse and assess the current situation – as much as we miss our customers, we do not want to rush.

“We will be operating take-out only, implementing other necessary safety changes such as limiting numbers and staff in-store, creating a one-way system, use of PPE and maintaining exceptional levels of hygiene and sanitisation.

“Our menu will also be temporarily reduced but we do promise the same great taste and satisfaction. Please be patient with us as we navigate this new normal. Your safety is our priority and not all things will be as they were.”

A new website is also being launched.
