Sometimes it’s great to get away from the hustle and bustle of cities and experience the tranquil countryside, and Galgorm Resort & Spa offers just that! This luxurious hotel is located in Ballymena Co. Antrim, just over 2 hours from Dublin and about 30 minutes from the lively city of Belfast.
One of the first things you will notice about Galgorm is its beautiful location, set within 163 acres of lush parkland. The Resort’s sprawling grounds offer an ideal setting for a range of activities, including archery, clay pigeon shooting, horse riding and also fishing, which can be enjoyed on the spectacular river Maine flowing through the estate.
The hotel is a great choice for an incentive or an event, with 122 elegant bedrooms and a range of modern versatile event spaces; host a gala dinner for 30 guests in the Drawing Room of the original Manor building, or a meeting for 100 delegates in the Four Seasons Suite.
Whether you are looking for a casual bite to eat or some fine dining there are options for all tastes, with Gillies Bar & Grill, traditional Italian eatery Fratelli, and the award winning River Room restaurant all providing great food in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Make sure to check out the Champagne and Gin Bar at The Conservatory too, which has one of the most extensive gin menus in the country!
Last year, the hotel launched its new Thermal Spa Village, which is the first of its kind in Ireland. It has unique indoor and outdoor spa and wellness facilities, including a full leisure pool and gym, snow cabin and sanarium, a hydrotheraphy pool, and quirky hot tubs overlooking the River Maine. It also has a luxurious private treatment suite that can be reserved for groups to enjoy some pampering!
