Hello you! Welcome to The Rabbit. A place to grab a bite, crash for the night or kick back and take in the sights, The Rabbit is all about the good times. Make their space your place.

An idyllic lakeside retreat, a laid back home from home, an open-air spa with character. Welcome to The Rabbit, it’s nice to meet you.

Whether you are visiting for work, rest, local or just passing-through, The Rabbit will look after you, with style in abundance and a homely feel. A gateway to city, The Rabbit is located in the heart of Templepatrick just 20 minutes from Belfast and 10 minutes from our International Airport.

The laid-back little sister to Galgorm, you can expect all the creature comforts you love housed in beautifully designed spaces with a few quirks along the way.

Make this space your place.

Eat & Drink
Grab a bite, noon and night
The Restaurant is the perfect spot to get stuck into inspiring menus that boast fresh, local and most importantly delicious dishes to savour. A grill room menu with an Italian-American influence features appetisers to pique your interest, pizzas for a slice of comfort and sharing options for two.

Hunter’s Bar
A stylish, bold space makes the perfect place for relaxing, drinking and socialising. Cosy in on sofas and raise a glass for whatever the occasion; the bartenders will have just the thing with creative drinks and wine lists full of surprises.

The Relaxation Burrow
Take to The Relaxation Burrow for a soak, dip, steam or relax in the lakeside setting designed for optimum zen.

Wrap up in your fluffy robe and make relaxation the destination as you wriggle your toes in the sand and feel the warmth flow through you on the heated lakeside beach - the perfect place for a sunrise yoga session or a moonlit soiree under the stars.

Detox in the traditional Swedish sauna, bask in the aroma steam room or experience the benefits of halotherapy in the Salt Chamber. Experience the ritual of outdoor bathing in showstopping Roman Baths, or cosy up with a cocktail in a heated relaxation lounger or cabanas by the lakeside vantage.
