We were flying out early the next morning and due to adverse weather conditions at home, we decided to stay overnight close to the airport. Found this hotel on the Internet and from the minute we arrived, Avril in reception was on the ball and made us feel at home. We had an evening meal and breakfast ...
My room was so lovely I really looked forward to getting back there after a long day of sightseeing. Great bathroom too with large walk in shower and separate bath. Dimmable lighting in the room meant you could create the perfect ambiance.
The quiet market town of Antrim sits at the point where the Six Mile Water River meets the vast expanse of Lough Neagh, the largest lake in the UK. The scenic splendour of this spot is enough of a recommendation in itself, but Antrim has much more to offer, being an enchanting mix of ancient, rural Ireland and contemporary, urban excitement.
It’s possible to enjoy a stay in Antrim without ever travelling more than a few miles, exploring the narrow, 18th century streets of the town centre, wandering along the scenic path by the river and admiring historically important monuments such as Antrim Castle and the Old Courthouse.
If you do opt to venture beyond the confines of Antrim centre itself, however, you’ll be treated to attractions and gorgeous Irish countryside in every direction. The excitement of Belfast city centre is just 18 miles to the east, while the flora and fauna of the lakeshore and the adrenalin-pumping activities on the water itself are just a short walk away. Travel further to the north, and you’ll find the wild Atlantic coast and some of the most unspoiled beaches in the UK.
As befits a town which offers so much in so many different ways, Antrim attracts an eclectic mix of visitors, from backpacking students to jet-set business people.

A hotel or guesthouse anywhere in or near the centre of Antrim will be ideally placed to take advantage of everything the area offers, with strong road links bringing Belfast and wider County Antrim within quick and easy reach.

The first port of call for family fun in Antrim simply has to be the waters of Lough Neagh. From the Antrim Boat Club, located on Randalstown Road, you can enjoy wind surfing, kayaking and sailing, although you may opt, instead, to paddle a canoe along the Six Mile Water River.<P>For more raucous, not to say exhausting, fun, head to Escarmouche Activities, located on Shanes Street in Randalstown, just 11 minutes from Antrim town centre. The family fun on offer here includes laser tag, archery, laser clay pigeon shooting and paintball.
If the weather turns bad – and, this being Ireland that might well happen – then treat the kids to a game or two of tenpin bowling at the glow-in-the-dark tenpin bowling alley located on Lough Road.
Once you’ve found your family-friendly hotel in Antrim you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to keeping the kids entertained, and that’s without even listing the family-friendly activities just 18 miles away in Belfast. What’s more, you’ll be given the warmest of welcomes when you return to your hotel at the end of a day’s fun.
