Where to Stay

Hotels, guesthouses, B&B, self catered apartments, camping and campervans...

ACCOMMODATION

You can book most local accommodation through the Ards & North Down tourism website

There are lots of very good guesthouses, B&B’s and some small hotels within walking distance of Ballyholme Yacht Club, especially from Bangor town centre, along Seacliff Road and around Ballyholme village. Self catering apartments and houses are also available (and very popular) to rent for the week.

A view of some of the local hotels and B&Bs can be viewed on this Tripadvsior page or on Google Maps. Search for guesthouses as well as hotels. Use our postcode BT20 5HT in any searches to include Ballyholme and not just Bangor.

Parking is free outside the town centre. There is also a large free carpark beside the RNLI lifeboat station near the Marina.

Please book early to avoid disappointment and to ensure that you’re close enough to enjoy any evenings entertainment that we’ve planned

CAMPING AND MOTOR-HOMES

For smaller events, we offer free camping on the lawn in front of the clubhouse with room for approx 6 tents. 

We also have limited space for motorhomes (water and electric charge: £10 per night) within the club grounds which will depend on the number of entries.  

Swipe-cards are available from the BYC office to access the toilets at night-time during events, with a refundable deposit of £10 each.

Please contact the BYC Office for more details and to book your space for either a tent or motor-home.
