The picturesque villages surrounding the town of Ballymena make for wonderful sightseeing, from Broughshane, the garden village of Ulster, to the historic Moravian settlement of Gracehill. Cullybackey is the ancestral home of Chester Alan Arthur, the 21st president of the USA.

Slemish Mountain dominates the landscape of the borough. According to legends Saint Patrick tended herds for his master on Slemish when first brought to Ireland as a slave in the 5th century.

A drive out to the Glens of Antrim is a must with their majestic scenery awaiting you - only 15 minutes from Ballymena town centre.

This is an ideal base for guests attending weddings in Galgorm Resort & Spa and other local hotels or for those who wish to explore the Causeway Coast, Belfast, Lough Neagh, Londonderry (The UK City of Culture for 2013) and return to luxury accommodation for peace and tranquillity.
