Venue Overview

Coast Road, Ballygally, Antrim
Ballygally Castle caters for only one wedding per day, here you really will be the Queen and King of the Castle. An historic and intimate venue, the 17th century Castle and walled gardens take in views of the Mull of Kintyre, with private access to the beach.


Located on the scenic Antrim coast, the Ballygally Castle faces the sandy beaches of Ballygally Bay. The Castle dates back to 1625 and is the only 17th century building still used as a residence in Northern Ireland today. The dramatic backdrop of sea, mountains and rugged cliffs just add to the character and charm of the castle and 17th Century walled gardens, making a stunning location for wedding photographs.

The castle is yours so the choice is yours and the Ballygally offers you exceptional choice for your Wedding day. From the exquisite Kintyre Ballroom overlooking the gardes, island, trout stream and Irish Sea, to the atmospheric 1625 Room, our banqueting suites combine comfort and ambiance in abundance. And there’s more; our superb walled garden and terrace is ideal for a drinks reception. With so much to offer, you and your guests will enjoy a perfect marriage of style and scenery.

We ensure that every detail of your day is perfect and that both the planning and the day itself are a relaxing, rewarding and very enjoyable experience. We pride ourselves on the personal touch. When it comes to food, you can be confident that each bite, from the welcoming canapés right through to the petits fours, is a delicious occasion in itself. Our Chef’s gourmet selections, sourced from local ingredients and producers, will make your Wedding banquet the talk of the day! All in all the perfect place and in every way the perfect day.

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at the stunning Ballygally Castle in May. From beginning to end we and all our guests were treated with the most amazing courtesy and care. The staff were extremely attentive and couldn’t have done enough for us. The change over from ceremony to reception

was done with swiftness and ease. We will never forget the moment we opened the doors to the stunning Kintyre ballroom to view our reception-we were just overwhelmed by the beauty o f the room. The food was also 1st class -just as delicious as it was for our tasting and we were receiving fantastic compliments about it throughout the day. Many of our guests also enjoyed the beautiful sea and garden views from their stylish and modern bedrooms and we do believe many guests have actually returned to Ballygally since to enjoy more of what the stunning hotel has to offer. We wish to give a special mention at this point to our wedding co ordinator Norma Craig whose extremely warm personality and meticulous attention to detail from the moment we arrived to view the venue to the very moment we left the morning after our wedding ensured that we had an amazingly unforgettable experience. Thank you Norma and all the team. We can not recommend Ballygally Castle enough -fabulous! Una and David 18.05.18 xxx
