Hotels in Ballymena

Once known for its bustling agricultural festival, Ballymena has been a market settlement since the 17th century, although this settlement has existed since at least the 7th century.

A history

Ballymena did not develop into a busy community until after the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, when large numbers of English farmers moved to the area to create plantations. The town was overlooked by a striking medieval castle, although this was removed in the 18th century and replaced with a country mansion by the late 19th century. By 1850, Ballymena was already home to more than 6,000 residents, and celebrated the opening of the 12 acre People's Park in 1870, marking the heart of the community.

The Braid

Visit The Braid, a popular museum and arts centre that showcases centuries of local heritage and is the home of the Braid Music Club. This family friendly venue explores Antrim's early Medieval Christian heritage, the rapid growth of Ballymena's textiles industry in the 19th century, and the history of the affluent Adair family and their role in the growth of the town.

Other places to see nearby

Just a short journey from the town is Slemish Mountain, which was the first home of Saint Patrick and comprises a former volcano with superb panoramic views of much of Northern Ireland.

You could also consider taking a day trip to the vibrant cultural hub of Belfast, a global city that is the home of the reputed Queen's University and has benefited from millions of pound of investment in regeneration schemes in recent years. The city has been the home of the Titanic Belfast monument since 2012, and is also the location of the world-class Victoria Square shopping centre and the majestic Classical Renaissance- Style Edwardian landmark of Belfast City Hall.

If you're eager to see Northern Ireland's unspoilt coastline, don't forget to visit the Giant's Causeway UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is within easy reach of Ballymena hotels. This extraordinary collection of prehistoric rock columns is known for its unusual plant species, and is the home of the oldest hydro-electric tram in Europe, which opened in 1883.
