It’s Not Too Early to Shop for the Holidays



Who needs a nuclear bunker? One is presently for sale!

In Northern Ireland, surrounded by lush green countryside, you can snap up a former nuclear bunker that was a state secret until 2007.

On the market at £575,000, the facility sleeps 236 and includes double blast doors and decontamination chambers.

Imagine the party you can throw for 235 of your best friends. And what a price!

From a commercial kitchen to power generators and oil storage, the facilities were designed to keep residents holed up for as long as 30 days.

The 3.7-acre site is east of the town of Ballymena, the heartland of firebrand Protestant cleric turned peacemaker Ian Paisley until his death in 2014.

Fixtures and fittings are included in the price of the two-storey bunker, which opened in 1990.

1990? Why would someone build a nuclear bunker in 1990?
