Welcome to Ballygally Castle

Ballygally Castle Enchanting escapes, every day.

They say location is everything, and if so Ballygally Castle has it all! Sitting proudly on the scenic Antrim coast, only 26 miles from Belfast, the 400 year old castle is the only 17th century building still used as a residence in Northern Ireland today.

This 4 star hotel has recently undergone a major refurbishment and is the finest hotel on the famous Causeway Coastal Route. Its tasteful contemporary décor, combined with the traditional character of the hotel, adds to the welcoming atmosphere.

The hotel is reputedly haunted by a friendly ghost, Lady Isabella, and brave guests can visit the “ghost room” in the tower! 

Visitors should note that GBP £ sterling is the principal currency. 


Ballygally Castle has a wealth of recreational activities within easy reach and can serve as the perfect base for exploring the stunning Causeway Coastal route. 

Carrickfergus Castle, the world renowned Glens of Antrim and the famous Giant’s Causeway are all close at hand. Those wishing to explore on foot will enjoy the beautiful walks to be found in Carnfunnock Country Park, which is within walking distance, or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll on the beach opposite the hotel.

For the Game of Thrones fans among you, the HBO’s award-winning television series was filmed in the areas surrounding Ballygally Castle, with cast and crew from the series frequently found relaxing at the Castle. The Castle even runs a Game of Thrones Tour, which includes Afternoon Tea, tour of the filming locations and an overnight stay with breakfast!
