This 6 bedroom Victorian Listed Building located at the sea front of Ballycastle town is a family run hostel overlooking the beach and marina. Ideally located on the main coastal route for walking and cycling, the accommodation comprises of private, double/twin rooms, a dorm room and a family room. Fairhead is the view from the front door (also the Scottish coastline if there is no Irish mist!!) The town of Ballycastle has much to offer - take a stroll and enjoy a meal and a drink in one of the many popular restaurants and bars. Should you prefer to cook you can do so in the hostel's kitchen or pick up a takeaway nearby. Relax in the upstairs lounge with a book, watch TV, chat with other guests or simply take in the view. The hostel is conveniently located for Moyle Way Walks and is just a 2 minute walk from the Rathlin Ferry terminal and opposite the bus stop for Belfast, Giants Causeway, Carrick a Rede, Coleraine, and the Glens of Antrim.
