Ballycastle Backpackers

About

Family run hostel located at the sea front of the town. Fairhead is the view from our front door (also the Scottish coastline if there is no Irish mist!) The town of Ballycastle has much to offer tourists visiting the Causeway Coast and Glens of Antrim or Rathlin Island.

Take a stroll around the family owned businesses and get a bargain from the friendly owners and after a day's sightseeing 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 or chat with other guests or take in the view.

Ideally located on the main Causeway Coastal Route for walking/cycling. Secure Bicycle parking on premises. Translink bus stop across the road, Rathlin Island Ferry and Campbeltown Ferry just a stroll away and convenient for Moyle Way and Causeway Coast Way walks, golf course, tennis courts, surfing, climbing and diving. Guests are greeted with a warm Irish welcome.

It is advisable to book in advance especially at weekends during April - August. Local tour guide onsite.
