The four-star Ballygally Castle in Country Antrim, which is part of Hastings Hotels’ portfolio, will reopen on April 6 following a £3m renovation.
Located on the Causeway Coastal Route, Ballygally Castle will feature a new wing with 18 "five-star coastal view" bedrooms including six family rooms – making it one of the largest hotels on the route with 54 bedrooms.
The new Kintyre Ballroom will accommodate up to 250 people and offer views over the castle gardens and coastline all the way to the Mull of Kintyre.
Hastings Hotels chairman Sir William Hastings, who bought the property in 1968 for £40,000, said: “Ballygally Castle is a very unique hotel and loved by people around the world.
"With this £3 million refurbishment, it is our aim to give people even more reason to visit this beautiful part of Northern Ireland."
Hastings continued: “The Giro d’Italia is just a couple of months away too and we are delighted that Ballygally Castle will be part of the action as the route passes the hotel".
Hastings Hotels is offering overnight accommodation in the newly-refurbished Ballygally Castle from £67.50 per person (based on two sharing), including afternoon tea for two, full Irish breakfast and free on-site parking.
