Ideally located on the scenic Antrim coast only 26 miles from Belfast and close to Larne, the Ballygally Castle faces the soft, sandy beaches of Ballygally Bay. The Castle dates back to 1625 and is unique in that it is the only 17th Century building still used as a residence in Northern Ireland today. The hotel is reputedly haunted by a friendly ghost and brave guests can visit the ‘ghost room’ in one of the towers to see for themselves.
This enchanting hotel is full of character and charm and was awarded its prestigious 4 star status by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board in May 2007, following an extensive £3 million investment and refurbishment programme over a two year period . The hotel has 44 beautiful bedrooms and many of the castle’s original features and antique furnishings give the hotel a unique welcoming atmosphere.
The famous “Nine Glens of Antrim” and the Giant’s Causeway are near at hand and the superb scenery can be enjoyed from many coastal and glen walks. Whether you want to celebrate a special occasion or just get away from it all and relax in style - whatever the reason or season, the Ballygally will be delighted to welcome you!
Guests can enjoy complimentary car parking at the front of the hotel.
