The town of Antrim is situated in County Antrim in Northern Ireland, a part of the country which is famed for the beauty of its landscape and in particular the spectacular scenery of the north Antrim coast, which is the point where the unspoiled beaches of Ireland meet the wild and crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Alongside this, however, Antrim also offers all of the facilities and amenities which would be expected of a modern tourist destination. Visitors from all around the world visit throughout the year, drawn by the town itself and also by the ease of access offered by the close proximity of two international airports.
Access to Antrim
Belfast International Airport is just five miles away from the town centre, while George Best Belfast City Airport is only 22 miles away, meaning that this quiet and appealing part of Ireland can easily be reached by visitors from the UK, Europe and beyond.
Attractions Around Antrim
As stated, the landscape around Antrim is truly appealing, not least the glittering waters of Lough Neagh, the largest lake in the UK, which is literally next door to the town centre. Another of the major attractions of a stay in Antrim, however, is the fact that it is also just 18 miles to the west of Belfast city centre. Students keen on sampling the Belfast nightlife, hen and stag parties choosing it as the base for their raucous celebrations and business travellers keen to take advantage of the many commercial opportunities on offer will all be grateful for the fact that hotels, bed and breakfasts and guesthouses in Antrim are just a short trip away from the capital city.
Conference Hotels in Antrim
Antrim and the wider County Antrim both make excellent bases from which to stage or visit a business conference. The combination of the proximity of Belfast and the calming effect of the surrounding tranquil countryside will produce the perfect atmosphere for working hard through the day and then resting and relaxing during downtime. Many of the conference hotels in Antrim are located either outside the town centre or dotted along the north Antrim coast, a location which will help to forge a truly memorable conference.
Business in Antrim
Conference-goers visiting Antrim will fall into two camps. Those who are using their hotel as a base from which to travel in and out of a conference venue situated somewhere like Belfast city centre, or those attending a conference actually being held at the hotel itself. The former will simply be seeking comfortable accommodation with facilities such as free Wi-Fi and dry cleaning, while the latter will be keen to take advantage of conference hotels packed with the facilities required to take care of every aspect of the conference.
The conference hotels in Antrim offer meeting and conference rooms, Wi-Fi, business centres and extras such as catering. What they also offer, of course, is a backdrop, such as that along the scenic Antrim Coast Road, perfectly placed to encourage an atmosphere of calm, relaxation and cooperation.
