Stella Maris Country House Hotel

Built in 1853 as a coast guard regional headquarters, this fine property on the edge of the wonderfully away-from-it-all village of Ballycastle was later acquired by the Sisters of Mercy, who named it Stella Maris. It now makes a very special small seasonal hotel, restored by proprietors Terence McSweeney and Frances Kelly, who have created a warm and stylish interior where antiques rub shoulders with contemporary pieces.

There’s a welcome emphasis on comfort throughout public areas, including a cosy bar - but the location is this hotel’s major asset and a conservatory built all along the front takes full advantage of it, allowing guests to relax in comfort and warmth while drinking in the majestic views of the surrounding coastline and sea.

There are Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland churches close by, and wedding blessings (arranged by the couple) are possible at Stella Maris. This wedding venues receptions are held in the dining room and conservatory overlooking the bay, and the menus are designed to suit individual requirements.

Weddings must take all 11 rooms for two days, which is a big plus for guests who might not be familiar with this wonderful area and who will be very comfortably accommodated here in uncluttered antique-furnished rooms with modern bathrooms that blend understated elegance with comfort - and have magnificent views.
