Honeymoon at Home

Where better to honeymoon right now than right here in Northern Ireland! We’re spoilt for choice with both coast, country and city destinations. Here’s a few to whet the travel appetite:

The Culloden Estate & Spa in Belfast stands on the forested slopes of the Holywood hills, overlooking Belfast Lough and the glorious County Antrim coastline, offering idyllic surrounds for a cosy weekend break. Deemed ‘The Ritz of Northern Ireland,’ the Culloden is a grand estate originally built as a palace for the Bishops of Down. As a country hotel, Culloden Estate & Spa immerses guests within a warm atmosphere that follows a billowing country walk perfectly. Enjoy fine dining in front of a roaring fire, or spend a beautiful autumnal day in the tranquil spa, followed by indulgent afternoon tea.
Culloden Estate & Spa offers something for everyone during Autumn, allowing guests to enjoy the stunning Northern Irish landscape and provide themselves with a well-earned break.

The Slieve Donard Resort & Spa is situated on the idyllic seashores of the Irish sea on Newcastle Bay. The hotel looks out to the Mountains of Mourne with spectacular views across the Royal County Down Golf Course. Set in six acres of beautifully kept private grounds, the property is famous for its expansive and luxurious spa. Guests can escape to a cocoon of calm and melt away their stresses with over two floors of tranquillity, including a magnificent 20m swimming pool and Vitality Pool, amethyst steam room and high tech fitness studio.

Ballygally Castle is beautifully located on the scenic Antrim coast facing the soft, sandy beaches of Ballygally Bay and only 26 miles from Belfast. The hotel offers 18 5-star coastal-view bedrooms including six family rooms making it one of the largest hotels on the Causeway Coastal Route – perfect for familymoons. The castle dates back to 1625 and is unique in that it’s the only 17th-century building still used as a residence in Northern Ireland today. The hotel is reputedly haunted by a friendly ghost and brave guests can visit the ‘ghost room’ in one of the towers to see for themselves.
