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.

Are all of your rooms equipped with a hair dryer? THANKS.
I would guess they all do - certainly our rooms have always had one - but even should some not then reception / housekeeping will undoubtedly provide you with one.

Hi DavidShelley, Sorry for the late reply, Belfast International & Belfast City Airport are both approx 25 miles away from Ballygally Castle. A taxi is normally easily got from both airports and we can organise a return taxi to the airport for you. Please call us on 02828581066 if we can be of any help. Warmest Regards Scott Weatherup
