5 Alternative Accommodation Options in the Causeway Coast and Glens


Planning your next break to Northern Ireland’s incredible Causeway Coast and Glens? There’s plenty of great places to stay throughout the area. If you’re searching for a unique and quirky place to rest your head, read on!


Bunk up in a Barn

Experience a real Irish welcome at Ballyeamon Barn, Cushendall. This is a hostel with a difference; Ballyeamon Barn has its own “session house” where visitors have the chance to meet local musicians and singers during regular sessions of storytelling and music, free and open to all. In real, authentic, hostel-style, there are 14 bunk beds on the property, but also a private studio apartment which is ideal for families or couples


Cosy down in a Cave

Situated at the foot of the spectacular Binevenagh Mountain, this quirky underground cottage accommodation is perfect for a romantic rural getaway. The luxury caves are framed by two beautiful spring water lakes and the caves benefit from spring water on tap. An abundance of outdoor recreation allows guests to get up close and personal with nature!


Cruise around in a Campervan

Enjoy the touring holiday you’ve always dreamed of on one of the world’s most iconic road trips. How? In a 1979 VW campervan, of course! This insta-worthy little van is available to hire from Castlerock Classics at very affordable rates. Imagine waking up in the back of this little beauty to a Causeway Coast sunrise – magic!


Get your beauty sleep in a Bell Tent

This is the perfect way to get closer to nature, but in comfort and style! These luxury Bell Tents at Swann’s Bridge are the perfect way to camp out under the stars, whilst still being able to charge your phone and have a hot shower the next day. Some of us aren’t cut out for proper pitch-your-own-tent camping, and that’s fine


Take 40 winks in a Wigwam

Snuggle down in a wooden ‘wigwam’ on your next visit to the Causeway Coast when you book your stay at this incredible glamping park. The deluxe models even have showers, making your stay incredibly comfortable and there’s even a games room and a play park on the grounds to keep the kids entertained when you’re not exploring our magnificent coastline
