Vacation Spots for Couples, United Kingdom Castles

It has endured the test of time and was bought in 1966 by the Hastings group of hotels (Slieve Donard Hotel, Stormont, Culloden, and Everglades). Though it has been enlarged and refurbished, the castle’s original elements, such as turreted chambers, exposed beams, and a strange sense of being on another planet, have been retained. Not to mention the castle’s fabled resident ghost, Lady Isabella Shaw herself, who resides in one of the castle’s medieval towers.

The Ballygally Castle Hotel is ideal for any occasion, and they accept reservations for conferences and events, weddings, funerals, and formals. With exposed beam ceilings and modern furniture, the rooms are sumptuous and appealing. Antrim’s Garden Restaurant is located inside the castle walls, with views of the castle gardens. Additionally, the hotel provides a Sunday Grand Buffet and, strangely enough, exclusive dining experiences in the dungeon. There are many nearby attractions, or the ferry to Scotland may be taken at Larne, five miles distant.

Whiskey Tours, Giants Causeway

What could be more romantic than a castle? The whole of County Antrim’s north coast, with its sea cliff hikes, small coastal villages like Portrush and Portstewart, and breathtaking sunsets over the Atlantic. There are tranquil day tours available visiting the nine Glens of Antrim. The mountains are cut by glacial geological formations, each distinct and home to trees, ferns, and other species not often seen in Ireland.

The Giants Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one-of-a-kind. A geological formation is composed of interlocking basalt columns that were formed during an old volcanic eruption. One of the world’s natural marvels lies just a few miles from the town of Bushmills, which is home to the Old Bushmills Distillery. It has been in operation since 1608, making it the world’s oldest operating distillery. Enjoy guided tours and in-depth explanations about Bushmills Irish whiskey, followed by a free taste of your choosing.

Carrick-a-Rede is located near the Giants Causeway and is noted for its rope bridge, a tourist attraction that hangs precariously 80 feet over the sea. Crossing this 48-inch-wide, 67-foot-long chasm is a thrilling but nerve-wracking event.
