When not wholly used for retreat purposes, the facilities offered at Drumalis provide an excellent venue for holding both residential and non-residential workshops, seminars and meetings.   
A diverse range of groups have used the centre in the past for their events, including Northern Ireland Embroidery Guild, East Antrim Institute, WAVE, Church of Ireland, Alpha Groups,  
SPRED, Parish Groups and Retrouvaille. 

Conference Facilities

Conference Rooms are located in the Victorian country house, which forms part of the Centre.  The house was built by Sir Hugh Smiley in 1872 and much of the interior decoration was the work of Scottish designer, George Walton.  Fine examples of his work (fireplaces, panelling, furniture and stained glass) still survive thus giving the conference facilities a distinctly unique flavour.

As well as conference rooms, Drumalis offers a variety of other rooms - lounge, library, prayer rooms, oratory and chapel for groups to use, click here


We can provide on-site catering to suit your group's needs, ranging from light refreshments to a full 4-course lunch.  Our experienced chef can cater for all special dietary requirements.


Drumalis offers a wide range of accommodation, both in the Victorian part of the House and the custom-built 1960s residential block.
