41 Dunamallaght Road, Ballycastle, Co Antrim, BT54 6PF
Salthouse Hotel


It’s the smell that gets you. The sweet, salty, sea air. Dancing on the wind, filling your senses as you lie back in the seaweed and gaze in marvel at the rugged coastline to Fairhead and beyond.

You could stay here forever, especially since the seaweed is the kind you find in a warm, luxurious seaweed bath. Outdoors. Pure decadence...

And because you’re at The Salthouse luxury eco hotel, there are 24 stylishly appointed bedrooms and suites, a soothing spa and a laid back bar and restaurant. If only you could bring yourself to leave the seaweed bath...

Never mind, after all, this is the perfect place to chill a little on your giant adventure. Slow the pace right down. A place to spend time together, rejuvenate and discover your coastal calm. Be enchanted and immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere of The Salthouse.

Relax in your bedroom or suite, featuring super-comfy beds, walk-in showers and boasting views over the countryside, sea or the charming central terrace.

If you do eventually get yourself out of the seaweed bath, you’ll enjoy ocean view dining with tables gazing out to stunning views at The Salthouse Bar and Restaurant.

The menu embraces the essence of the locality using the finest, locally sourced ingredients like seafood fresh from the pier. 

Did we mention the spa facilities also include a sauna, steam room, 3 treatment rooms, 2 outdoor hot tubs, and of course, the 2 exclusive outdoor seaweed baths?

Dive in and embrace your giant spirit (just don’t forget to get out again!).
