Ballina a shopping town with a population of about 9,500 is about a half hour from Ballycastle, a village of 350. The beach is about a mile from the village and there are numerous loop walks that are easily accessed. In Ballycastle, there is traditional music once weekly in the local pub and Mary’s Cottage Kitchen tearoom has daily lunches and home baking available. A butcher shop, grocery store and an off license are also available.
