Located on the scenic Antrim coast only 26 miles from Belfast and close to Larne, the Ballygally Castle faces the sandy beaches of Ballygally Bay. The Castle dates back to 1625 and is the only 17th Century building still used as a residence in Northern Ireland today. This enchanting hotel is full of character and charm. The many original castle features and antique furnishings also give the hotel a unique welcoming atmosphere.

We stayed in one of the tower rooms, amazing atmosphere in the castle combined with a very high level of finish in the room in general but particularly the bathroom. Faultlessly clean. Dinner in the restaurant was another highlight. I just hope the surf and turf I had is still
