Armoy Holiday Homes Antrim
Armoy is a small picturesque village in County Antrim located 9 km south west of Ballycastle and 13 km north east of Ballymoney. It is situated on the banks of the River Bush. The village lies between two of the nine Glens of Antrim, Glenshesk and Glentaisie. The Armoy area also takes in half of Knocklayd mountain.
Armoy is one of the largest villages in the Moyle area providing primary education, convenience shopping, and Post Office, as well as a range of community facilities.
A picturesque Presbyterian Church sits on the edge of the village. The church’s striking spire, with a Viking ship weather vane on top, has been described as ’a miniature replica of the Eiffel Tower’.
There are the remains of an ancient round tower on the edge of the village. The village centerpiece was always a building beside the river known locally as ‘Tilly Molloy’s’.
This building has been been completely refurbished in the last decade and now contains shops, a cafe and spacious holiday apartments overlooking the River Bush – an ideal place for fishing, walking or just relaxing
