Located on the site of the old Ballymena Academy crammer school, this shopping centre is an education to all visitors who will find anything that Belfast offers but usually at a lower price It is within easy reach from the M2 motorway and is well signposted - there is more than adequate parking. The centre provides an eclectic range of... More

Lovely clean shopping centre. Plenty of varied shops even though the centre is relatively small. M & S, Next, River Island, Wallis, Easons, Debenhams to name but a few. Couple of hours easily spent browsing and did not visit all of stores. Easily accessible to rest of Ballymena town through one end of centre. Only complaint would be that I... More

Us oldies took a long time grieving over the demise of the wonderful market that used to grace the Fairhill. It wasn't a referendum that lost us the much loved street market but the march of big business which can sometimes deliver excellence as the Fairhill Centre demonstrates. People flock here from far and wide to enjoy a relaxing and... More

I'm from Belfast originally and always thought shopping in Belfast was best. Now I live near the Fairhill Centre I've changed my thinking.... the range of shops caters for all ages, it's really clean and the parking is reasonable. Love to spend a Sunday afternoon strolling around the shops.

Called into the centre after lunch. It much nicer and larger than the other mall on the main street. It has a lot of quality shops Tommy Hilfiger for one. Debenhams is very small in this mall. We got a few things but not what we were looking for. Very clean and tidy

This is the more upmarket shopping centre in Ballymena. It has bigger and more upmarket anchor stores and stores in general eg Marks and Spencer's and Tommy Hilfiger respectively. It's well laid out and has a distinct style and look about it, which I must say I like very much. It's got a food court upstairs and overall is a... More
