Welcome to Bellahill Cookery and VW Campervan Wedding Hire


Bellahill (our home) is situated in the quiet countryside of Ballycarry, located on the Causeway Coastal Route and only a 10 minute drive from two local tourist attractions – The Gobbins and Carrickfergus Castle. The famous weaver poet James Orr, depicts the beauty of the area in his poem, The Bellahill Tree and William James Hume describes the serenity of the valley in his folk song The Muttonburn Stream, which runs close by our home.

Having inherited the hospitality gene, we have always enjoyed having friends and family round for dinner and taking them out for a spin in our VW camper.  We recently realised our home was the perfect place do what we loving doing best – giving people good food and a good old fashioned fun time.

She is a fully working camper and gives Billy and Arlene many carefree weekend breaks in sunny Portrush. A spin in Agnes will guarantee lots of friendly smiles, waves and beeps.  We have endeavoured to preserve her raw charm and originality, which brings a nodding smile to everyone who meets her.  She seats 6 adults (including the driver) and is available for chauffeur driven wedding hire.
