Nestled in the green arm of the County Antrim countryside and on the banks of the Braid River, the majority of Ballymena’s hotels are pleasantly situated.

Why not experience life like one of the locals in one of Ballymena’s friendly bed and breakfasts?

Since they’re mostly located out of the centre, they usually boast large gardens that bloom in summer, and iconic views of the Northern Irish countryside all year round.
For backpacker’s hostels, campsites and caravan parks you are going to need to stay just a short drive away.
