Ballynahinch was traditionally a market town and the market still takes place in the town every Thursday. Ballynahinch lies on the main A24 Belfast to Newcastle Road, 15 miles south of Belfast. Facilities in the town include a community centre. Ballynahinch, from the Irish meaning town of the holm (island) is twinned with Lamorlaye, France.

Ballynahinch was known for the 1798 rebellion, The Battle of Ballynahinch. 

The town was popular in the 19th Century as a spa destination among fashionable aristocratic travellers who came to `take the waters' at medicinal spa wells two miles outside the town.

The Market House is a grade 2 listed building and has played a major role in the everyday lives of the people of Ballynahinch since it was originally built in 1795. In August 2010, the Council took over ownership and has continued to provide a focal point for the people in the area.  

Montalto Estate is located on the outskirts of the town and is the perfect way to reconnect with nature, in a natural, historical, and truly relaxing setting.
