The historic market town of Ballymena is situated in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The Braid River runs through the town centre, and it is guarded from the east by the strange but striking Slemish Mountain – a peculiar outcrop in the otherwise meadow-filled landscape that surrounds it. Despite being a country town, Ballymena is still lively, with much to do in the area. Renting a car is a great way to get around.
If you’re flying to Ballymena via one of Belfast’s two airports, getting here by road is easiest. If you rent a car through Expedia, you can simply collect it when you arrive and get going without a fuss. Ballymena is about 35 minutes drive from Belfast City Airport via the M5, and just 25 minutes drive from Belfast International Airport, via the Lisnevenagh Road.
Hiring a car to get to Ballymena from the airport is one thing, but you will also benefit from a rental car to make the most of the sights that this splendid county has to offer. You might want to head to the world-famous Giant’s Causeway on Northern Ireland’s remarkable coast, or you could find inspiration in the Nine Glens of Antrim as you drive along the Cloghs Road towards the cliffs.
Rent a car with Expedia today, give yourself some freedom, and make sure your trip to Ireland is unforgettable.
