Ballygally is perfectly located for those wishing to explore The Causeway Coastal Route as it is within walking distance of Carnfunnock Country Park, Cairndhu Golf Club and Ballygally Castle. It is also within 20 minutes drive of The Gobbins Cliff Walk, Carrickfergus Castle and Glenarm Castle. The rest of the attractions such as The Giants Causeway and Carrick-a-rede rope bridge are within a pleasant driving distance. There is a grocery shop in the village and several good restaurants nearby. If beaches or water sports are your thing Ballygally beach, a small, safe, sandy beach is opposite the apartments and a small slipway ideal for launching small watercraft is just across the road.    

 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 Tourism and local business accolades including The Northern Ireland Tourism Awards best Self-catering accomodation 2019 and we hope continue to provide a memorable and relaxing experience for all our future and returning guests.
