Hi my name is Margy. I live in beautiful Ballygally. I started my bed and breakfast business in 2013 and enjoy welcoming guests to my home. I returned to Ireland several years ago after living in England and Wales. I love meeting the diverse and interesting people who travel to this part of Ireland.
The house is full of natural light with views of the sea or the Glens of Antrim from every window. The bedrooms all have sea views, and breakfast is served in in a delightful space with views on all sides. The house inspires imagination and a desire to explore this beautiful part of Ireland, while offering a relaxed and peaceful sanctuary for travellers who want to recharge their batteries.
Spend a few days in Kinnalargy and I can arrange for you to explore the exciting area on foot, by bicycle or by car, enjoy an evening of traditional music or visit the exciting Gobbins cliff path, beautiful local gardens at Glenarm and Island Magee.

Two nights bed and breakfast at Kinnalargy (www.kinnalargy.co.uk)
including a guaranteed booking to explore The Gobbins, a spectacular location, only 30 minutes drive from Kinnalargy, where you can truly escape everyday life and experience nature at its most elemental. During your amazing 2.5 hour walking tour you taste the sea salt on your lips, feel the Irish Sea wind, marvel at tales of local smugglers, witness the native sea birds and keep your eyes open for some dolphins swimming off the rugged coastline.
Your adventure is led by one of our fully trained local guides who will take you along a narrow path hugging the dramatic cliff face; across spectacular bridges amid the crashing waves of the North Channel; traversing hidden Tunnels under the Irish Sea; up and down rugged steps carved into the cliff face and into caves that were once home to smugglers and privateers.
The Gobbins Path is an arduous trek that is often narrow and uneven, accessed by a very steep pathway. Due to the nature of the rugged coastal location suitable outdoor clothing and walking boots or shoes are essential. To enjoy The Gobbins a good level of fitness is needed.

Kinnalargy is my home so I am there to greet guests, provide breakfast and to give information on the many amenities and experiences to explore in the Glens area. I enjoy meeting and chatting to guests, but the house is spacious enough to allow everyone to have their own privacy.
I love living on the Antrim Coast, the scenery is spectacular, the light changes constantly from bright blue skies to stormy clouds, with wonderful sunsets when the sun sinks over the hills at the back of the house.
Ballygally is a very friendly village with a local community shop, post office and lively community hall for local activities. Guests have a choice of walks from the house, the beach is 5 minutes away. For those who prefer a longer walk, Carnfunnock Country park can be reached by a woodland footpath with views of the ferries travelling across the Irish sea to Scotland, and the Ulster Way footpath meanders along the escarpment behind the house.
There is ample and secure parking in the grounds of Kinnalargy. There is a local bus service and taxis can be ordered locally. Belfast International airport is 45 minutes drive away and George Best Belfast City airport is 50 minutes drive.
A golden retriever called Amber and a tabby cat called Bobsy live at the house and both are very friendly.

Margy made me feel immediately welcome with tea and biscuits on arrival. her beautiful home is everything I expected, and more. the photographs on the website were an accurate guide. The house was in a quiet location with great views over the countryside and the sea. It was within easy walking distance of the village shop, post office and local restaurants.
Margy went out of her way to ensure I was warm and comfortable and that I had everything I needed. Her breakfast was not only lavish, but also very tasty.
The rooms were very spacious, very well equipped and very cosy. It was just the sort of relaxing break I had hoped for. Highly recommended.

Margy was a very welcoming host and made our stay very comfortable. The views from the house were spectacular and the house itself cosy and inviting. Margy was also very knowledgeable about places to see and things to do in the surrounding area. Definitely a place I would recommend to stay at . I'll very likely want to stay again when I go back to Northern Ireland.
