The Ballygally Castle Hotel has everything history buffs could wish for. Character, heritage, a walled garden … and yes some even say it’s haunted! But the permanent friendly resident doesn’t daunt the many guests who return to this unique and much-loved hotel again and again. Step outside onto the golden beach surrounded by coastal paths and rugged cliffs with a view of the Scottish coastline. The beauty of the Antrim Coast is all round - wooded glens, picturesque villages, country parks, golf, hiking and angling. Ballygally Castle even has its own trout stream for the keen fisherman. As you relax in one of the bedrooms with its beamed ceilings and pine furnishings, it’s hard to believe you’re only twenty miles from Belfast. Dating back to 1625, the castle is the only 17th Century building still used as a residence in Ireland today. There is a choice of four conference rooms with exquisite views to distract you from the work at hand or guests can enjoy dining in the Garden Restaurant overlooking the walled garden and trout stream.
