Fresh from an 18-month £10 million revamp, The Rabbit Hotel & Retreat is the new laidback little sister to Galgorm. This lakeside retreat has four room types all with seriously comfy beds and Scandi-inspired style – think cane bed heads, faded Persian rugs on wooden floorboards and tassel-fringed lighting. Some Comfy rooms come with an outdoor tub in a private courtyard while a pair of Luxe rooms each has a free standing bath and views of the garden or lake. There are subtle nods to the bunny theme throughout, from the signature Jessica Rabbit rosé gin cocktail on the menu in Hunter’s Bar to the Relaxation Burrow spa which has its own beach with heated sand (perfect for a sunrise yoga session), a traditional Swedish sauna, aroma steam room, salt chamber and Roman baths. After a day spent chilling out, dress up for dinner at Rabbit Restaurant, where Italian-American influenced dishes include seafood bouillabaisse and sticky ribs for two. Located just 20-minutes from Belfast, this is the ideal city escape.
