A traditional hotel in central Ballymena and also well situated for the wonderful Antrim coast, Lough Neagh and Belfast. There is a good bar and restaurant, food and drink reasonably priced and the "full Irish" for breakfast would keep you going all day. My room was clean, warm

Hi there Can you tell me how far the Adair Arms is from the Titanic quarter? hank you
I was actually in the Adair Arms Hotel tonight for drinks with friends... it has a really nice atmosphere. The Adair Arms Hotel is in Ballymena which is about 40 drive from Belfast's Titanic Centre. A really good and handy location to Belfast and the amazing North Antrim Atlantic coast and picturesque Glens of Antrim. Highly recommended hotel with a lovely restaurant and warm and friendly staff to welcome you.
