Welcome to May and Summer is just round the corner. where does the time go? We are now ready for the season with amongst other things - a new bathroom inb apartment No 2, new ceramic hobs in all apartments and a lot!! of general maintenance.
The bad news this month is that the apartments have just gone on the Market for Sale. I have decided to retire and David and Joan have taken the decision to retire also. The plan is to sell as a going concern so hopefully there will be no disruption to business over the Summer. I must say I will miss all the friends I have made over theyears. However I won't be too far away and the kettle will always be on for a cup of coffee.
The Causeway Coastal Route can be travelled whatever the season and what delights are in store along the way. Castles to explore, waterfalls of outstanding beauty, The Giants Causeway, beautiful beaches for a walk. Lots of things to do for all the family. Just google 'The Causway Coastal Route' and you will be amazed by the variety of sights waiting to be discovered.
The Gobbins re-opens in June this year and our newest attraction - The Whitehead Railway Museum is now open and is going to attract all those train buffs out there. I had a sneak preview and it is really worth a visit.
The Game of Thrones filming continues to draw visitors to this part of the coast This area must be one of the favourite spots for filming , The Ballygally Castle Hotel is now home to one of the famous 10 doors. A must for a photo! Magheramourne quarry is the site for the 'White Wall' (easily visible from the road - it gets whiter every day!) and rumours are saying that it will soon be a venue for Wedding Photos. The hills above the apartments are often lit up for night time scenes which featured in the latest series. If you are very lucky you will see strangely dressed creatures in the village shop. The bad news is that season 8 is to be the last series, I don't know what is going to happen to all the film locations.? download the Game of Thrones app on our website to plan your visit.
Steensons jewellers in Glenarm is another must on the attractions trail. Their new showroom is situated beside the church as you enter the village and you just might see them working on a piece of jewellry for Game of Thrones. Ladies, you will love it - trust me.
What could be nicer than a Summer break at the Ballygally Holiday Apartments? A trip up the coast or a days shopping in Belfast back for a barbeque and then relax in the comfort of your apartment to watch the sea . truly 'your home from home' on the Antrim Coast.
I look forward to meeting old and new friends in 2017. Just phone us to arrange that well earned holiday. Best wishes, Jennifer
