A coastal town at the tip of Northern Ireland, Ballycastle has often been praised for its natural beauty. Goats often roam the area, providing an extremely scenic area. Plan your next trip here with our pick of the best Airbnb vacation rentals.
Ballycastle is known for its nature and bustling town life. The apartment is situated close to the Giant’s Causeway, Carrick a Rede Rope Bridge and many Games of Thrones (GOT) filming sites. For those of you who marvel at the amazing geography in GOT, Ballycastle is the place for you. The apartment is also within walking distance to town, and the host can recommend some good pubs and restaurants nearby. You will share a room with other guests, which allows for some socializing if you are a solo traveller, or simply wish to interact with some other people. There is a shared bathroom, but the host provides a bathrobe for privacy and convenience. The host’s dog also occasionally hangs around, so do pet her if you see her around. A supposedly terrific breakfast is also provided by the host, so look forward to that with your cup of tea in the morning!

Experience the true farm life with this quaint flat that is attached to a period family home in the heart of a working dairy farm. The house is in an idyllic rural setting with its own mature gardens and views of the surrounding North Antrim countryside. The hosts also live in the main house and they are extremely approachable and friendly. The apartment shares some of the period features of the main house such as wooden-shutters, sash windows and old panelled doors whilst enjoying more modern ones like WiFi and television. The hosts are also kind enough to give you a tour of the dairy farm if you ask. Guests will particularly like the homely touches they have kept in place such as the shelves full of amazing old books, a wood burning stove, and so on. One has also remarked that the apartment is situated in the middle of all that Northern Ireland has to offer. No more than one hour drive to the larger cities/airports (Belfast, Londonderry) and less than twenty minutes from many picturesque sites (Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-rede rope bridge, Bushmills, etc.
