We offer Irish hospitality in a relaxed and homely atmosphere. Home cooking is a specialty. It is a working farm with the original stone buildings in the farmyard mainly intact. Colliers Hall has three bedrooms all ensuite, tastefully decorated with antique furnishings. There are tea/coffee facilities in rooms with a spacious lounge for guests to relax in with open log/turf fire, tv/video and piano.
Colliers Hall is situated on the A2 coastal road between Ballycastle and Cushendall about 1 mile from Ballycastle. It is a working farm and indeed has been since 1734. With traditional farmyard and stone buildings, it takes its name from the numerous coal mines doted along the shoreline between Ballycastle and Murlough Bay and has been associated with the mines in the past.
Remember we have accommodation to suit all. Whether you are just visiting Antrim for a couple of days or wish to have a longer stay, we can accommodate you. If you do need any further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
In 2000 we converted an old stone-built barn beside the house into extra accommodation, offering B&B and self-catering. It had been used in the past for storing horse-drawn threshing machine and fodder for the livestock. We gave the new project the name "Collier's Barn".
High quality accommodation is offered in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. There are five bedrooms (three twin and two double) on the ground floor and a large family room on the first floor. All bedrooms are en-suite and tastefully decorated. There is also a kitchen and TV lounge for guests' use, laundry facilities are also available. Collier's Barn offers ideal and comfortable surroundings for social get-togethers.
Ballycastle is a small seaside resort of architectural character which holidaymakers go back to time and time again. Apart from nightclubs, it has everything: fine beach, camp sites, splendid sea and river angling, golf course, tennis, bowls,
ruined friary. Cliffs and covers.
In Ballycastle's pubs you will meet deep sea fishermen, geologists, archaeologists, botanists and fossil hunters, artist, amateur historians and family holidaymakers. Every 'Irish exile' knows of the nine Glens of Antrim: other visitors from many nations have drawn there by tales of their beauty and peace. Old tales are still told, in bar pallor or home, for the Glens are the most Irish part of the North.
In Glenaan is the reputed grave of Ossian, the greatest Celtic poet; Cushendun was the home of Moira O'Neill, poets of the Glens, and in this same village the English Laureate John Masefield found a wife. Folk music and dancing are part of the Glens' way of life, and no old song is more widely sung than 'The Ould Lammas Fair at Ballycastle O'.
