New 24-Bedroom Eco Hotel Opens In Ballycastle, Co. Antrim

A new 24-bedroom eco hotel called The Salthouse has opened for business in the Co. Antrim town of Ballycastle.

£5 Million Investment

The Belfast Telegraph quotes Nigel McGarrity, who runs the venue along with his wife, Joann, his son, Carl, and his daughter, Emma, as saying, "In total, £5 million has been invested to create a unique, luxurious, exclusive eco-hotel set in a beautifully landscaped site, with seven self-catering chalets sharing the breathtaking setting.

"An onsite wind turbine and solar panels have been integrated into the design and the energy that they generate will power the hotel. We are beyond carbon neutral. We also have a 'no single use' plastics policy, and the water that services The Salthouse is from its very own borehole."

Room Technology

Additionally, the hotel's bedrooms are equipped with technology that gives guests complete control of the lighting, heating and entertainment in their rooms.
