This is fantastic place to go if it is raining as it is an indoor shopping centre. There is something for everyone as there is a wide variety of shops. The food court is great, as it offers a few different cuisines.

Despite all the adverts trying to convince you to come in and shop with this once great shopping centre, it actually is now quite a boring place to visit. In the last 18 months HMV and Easons have closed here and that means for me when I visit this centre, there isn't really anywhere for me to go to. The... More

What's not to like? Easy parking, very reasonable priced. Excellent variety of shops and restaurants. Great Marks and Spencer and Debenhams stores. Easy walking distance into town. Plenty seating to stop and rest . A very good venue for a few hours shopping.

this shopping centre in the middle of Ballymena is average size, not massive but it has a great selection of shops and eateries.

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.
