Nestled within the lush parkland of County Antrim, the Galgorm stands as a testament to both luxury and historical grandeur. Its history dates to 1618 when it was the centrepiece of a Jacobean castle, with tales of warriors, alchemists, and nobility woven into its fabric.

Today, the Galgorm stands as a perfect fusion of historical charm and contemporary luxury. The resort boasts 125 opulent guestrooms and suites, including log cabins, cottage suites, shepherd’s huts, and residences, ideal for both groups and families.

The bedrooms stand as a testament to this, boasting a décor that is both modern and timeless, radiating comfort and elegance. The rooms are adorned in warm hues, while the cottage suites offer a private and uniquely furnished retreat, complete with all the contemporary conveniences such as King Koil mattresses, a desk, seating area, marble bathrooms, robes, flip-flops, an Espresso machine, mini-bar, GHD hairdryer and Cora Toiletries.

The decoration throughout the resort is both impactful and stylish, with an ethereal charm that complements the natural beauty of the estate. From large statement marble dining tables, candelabras and chandeliers being luxurious and opulent.

There are several bars and restaurants within the resort.  From afternoon tea in the conservatory, the casual dining at Gillies Grill, the family friendly Fratelli Italian to the authentic BBQ smokehouse at Castle Kitchen & Bar.

The jewel in the crown is the unique Thermal Spa Village, and the first of its kind in Ireland.  With a selection of riverside hot tubs, indoor and outdoor heated pools and combining award-winning spa facilities and professional service to create an environment where tranquillity can flourish.
