The Rabbit Hotel & Retreat


Burrowed lakeside in the heart of Templepatrick village and situated just a 20-minute drive from bustling Belfast, The Rabbit Hotel & Retreat is an AA Four Star hotel and promises to give you all the creature comforts you love housed in beautifully designed spaces with a few quirks along the way. With unique bedrooms, delicious dining and a show-stopping spa, the hotel exudes all the luxury you would expect from Galgorm’s laid-back little sister.

The Relaxation Burrow, AKA The Spa, exudes a mix of sophisticated luxury and Bohemian glam, with an array of luxurious facilities and spa treatments for hotel guests to enjoy during their stay.

Detox in the aroma steam room, soak in the hot tub and Swedish sauna, experience halotherapy in the salt chamber or bathe beneath the mirror ball in the show-stopping Roman bath for a truly unique spa experience. Delight over your favourite drink at The Bar; or if rejuvenation is more your style, sit back, relax and laze lakeside on the cosy heated loungers or enjoy some 'me time' in the relaxing cabanas. Forget what you know about spas, The Relaxation Burrow promises laid-back Balearic vibes and a playlist to match, making it the perfect spot to catch-up with friends or kick back with a partner.

Holiday plans that your pooch can be part of! If you're looking for dog-friendly accommodation, you're barking up the right tree! We have one Comfy with Outdoor Bathtub suitable for your pooch to relax in style. As well as the quirky bathtub, the private outdoor space boasts a wood burning stove. Enjoy luxurious amenities including a king-size bed, Dyson hairdryer, Nespresso machine, Marshall Amp and much more, everything you need for an epic stay.  Our very own furry friend, Florence the Resident Dog can’t wait to make new friends when you come to visit,
