About Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council

The Borough of Antrim & Newtownabbey covers 274 sq miles from the shores of Lough Neagh in the west to the shores of Belfast Lough in the east. Its northern boundary with Ballymena leads to the Glens of Antrim and the port of Larne, while to the south it borders Belfast and Lisburn.

There’s many places to visit in the Borough. Antrim Castle Gardens are an absolute historical gem. You will find nothing like these 400-year-old gardens anywhere else in Northern Ireland. Lough Neagh is the ideal base for tourists; it’s got a good choice of accommodation, a central location, a rich heritage and good quality shopping. From the town of Larne, the nine Glens of Antrim showcase an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as one of Antrim’s main tourist attractions
