    Ballymena Details

    Ballymena is a town located in Country Antrim, and had a recorded population of nearly 29,000 people in the 2001 Census. It is a historic town, founded on land donated to a family by King Charles I in 1626. One of the conditions of the gift was that the town held a free market every Saturday, and the people were so good to their word that it still runs today, and makes an enjoyable morning’s entertainment.EasyToBook.com can help you to find and book a cheap hotel from the many that are available in Ballymena.
