A little History
Ballygally Holiday Apartments is run by Julie and Mark Campbell and their welcoming family, who love Ballygally and our fabulous coastline and are always enthusiastic to showcase the best of Northern Ireland’s hospitality and attractions to their guests. The building itself started life as a Youth Hostel run by the Youth Hostel Association of Northern Ireland and provided accommodation for thousands of tourists up until its close in 1994. It is still affectionately known by some locals as “The Old Youth Hostel”. But with its spectacular views it wasn’t to sit empty for long. In 1996 it was converted into the current layout of seven spacious fully furnished self catering apartments and addition of the glass conservatory style windows was made to the front to make the most of those unforgettable views.
We have since gone on to win several Northern Ireland Tourism and local business accolades and continue to provide a memorable and relaxing experience for all our future and returning guests.
Your apartment contains everything you need for your stay including cooker, hob, microwave, kettle, cafetiere, washer dryer(some tablets provided), dishwasher(some tablets provided), kitchen utensils and pans, seating and place settings for yourselves plus guests.
