With the half-term Hallowe’en break quickly approaching, we thought we’d let you know what we have lined up to keep you – and the little ones – amused…

As is the same every year, 2019 is fit to burst with events and fun along the Causeway Coast. To inspire and help you organise and plan, we thought we’d collect the best our beautiful north coast has to offer.

See you there!

Enjoy the Halloween Happenings on the Causeway Coast

We are getting into the Halloween ‘spirit’ a the Hotel, where we have some interesting decorations in place to set the scene for a ghoulishly great half-term break!

On Saturday 26th October the Community Rescue Service is hosting a kids Strictly Come Dancing evening in our ballroom. The little ones have been practising hard ahead of the big night in aid of a great cause.

On Sunday 27th October we are hosting a Spooky Sunday Lunch, with diners (and their little guests) welcome to enjoy the laughs and entertainment provided by Parky the Magician. There’s face painting and fancy dress too!

Away from the Hotel and there are four days of spook-tacular Council events and entertainment to look forward to, kicking off in Ballymoney on Monday 28th October before further celebrations in Limavady (October 29th), Coleraine (October 30th) and Ballycastle (October 31st).

Closest to us is Coleraine, and a range of illuminated inflatable decorations bedecking the town centre buildings have been turning heads…

The fireworks display and entertainment on Wednesday 30th at the Rugby Avenue playing fields is always a great evening out, and best of all entry is FREE! There are also amusements and slime workshops, and some events in the town centre during the daytime.

Venture out to Downhill and at Bishops Gate you can embark on a journey of adventure and discovery as you take to the spooky woodland on a Halloween scavenger hunt… 28th October to 2nd November, 10am – 3pm each day.

And if you just want to get away from it all, enjoy a relaxing break in comfortable surroundings with great food and friendly staff, you know who to call…

Autumn is a great time to get out and about around the North Coast’s splendid beaches, hills and forests. The outdoors is truly magnificent as summer green turns to autumnal hues of gold, rust and brown. There is something soothing, calming, about a walk along a deserted promenade. Now is a great time to enjoy a quiet break with us, away “from the madding crowd”.
