Boasting world-class hospitality and unrivalled spa, accommodation and golf facilities, the renowned Galgorm just outside Ballymena in County Antrim is the jewel in Northern Ireland’s hospitality crown.
Home to 125 guest rooms including Deluxe and Suite options and a range of superior lodging accommodation, Galgorm is an ideal location for a romantic break, family celebration or group getaway.
Awaken your spirit of adventure
Reconnect with nature with a stay in a Shepherd’s Hut with the Bed & Breakfast Experience (from £405). New and exclusive to Galgorm, these fully equipped one-bed huts are located in the Secret Meadow adjacent to Galgorm Wood. Experience the restorative benefits of forest bathing in your private outdoor tub or enjoy a complimentary gin and tonic by the fire pit on the terrace. This package includes Thermal Spa Village relaxation from check-in until check-out and full Irish breakfast in Gillies Grill.
A Two Night Dining Retreat (from £690 for two guests) is perfect for those occasions when one night simply isn’t enough. Stay in a luxurious guest room, complete with complimentary mini bar, access to the Thermal Spa Village and full Irish breakfast each morning. Experience a taste of Galgorm with a sumptuous three course evening meal on one evening in Gillies Grill and a seasonal afternoon tea in The Conservatory on an afternoon of your choice.
Groups can opt for the spacious Log Cabins with private hot tub, whilst the Red Oaks Residence, Charles Lanyon Gate Lodge and Linen Merchant’s Residence provide larger groups with a home away from home. The resort also offers a range of outdoor pursuits including fishing, hiking, horse riding at Shean’s Horse Farm, falconry, clay pigeon shooting and tennis.
Galgorm is also less than 30 minutes from Belfast and close to the north Antrim coast so it makes a perfect base from which to explore the best Northern Ireland has to offer. The exhilarating Gobbins coastal path and the Titanic Belfast experience are just two great places to check out on your visit.
Awaken your senses
Voted Best Spa Experience across the UK and Ireland at the Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence 2021, Galgorm is home to the world-class Thermal Spa Village. It boasts heated and cool spa experiences including a vitality pool by the River Maine, salt cave, private riverside tubs, saunas, steam rooms and pools. After relaxing, make sure to enjoy a riverside lunch at Elements Café or a tropical cocktail in the botanical-inspired Palm House.
Awaken your taste buds
As one of only a handful of restaurants in Northern Ireland to achieve 3 AA Rosettes for Culinary Excellence, seasonal produce is at the heart of The River Room Restaurant. Head chef Chris Rees showcases the very best of the season through his five course tasting menu. A dining experience to remember, guests are treated to a sumptuous menu of exquisite dishes that showcase seasonal ingredients sourced from local artisan suppliers and the resort’s very own kitchen garden.
For a more casual affair, the family-friendly Fratelli Ristorante serves up traditional pizzas, pasta and authentic Italian cicchetti (perfect for sharing), with Gillies Grill a go-to destination for guests and locals alike. The Castle Kitchen + Bar, a stone’s throw from the resort, is a space for all tastes and occasions – think an eclectic mix of pub classics peppered with speciality dishes from the grill and homemade desserts to finish.
Finally, no stay in Galgorm would be complete without a visit to the Gin Library. Home to over 500 varieties of gin and housed in a bespoke glass conservatory with views of the River Maine, a team of expert mixologists are on hand to hand pick your perfect serve.
