Glenariff Forest Park is quite simply: stunningly beautiful. There are several trails that take you past trees that are hundreds of years old, babbling brooks and waterfalls. It is full of lush areas where you would expect to see fairies floating about. The trails are not for the faint of heart (literally). Look at the map because one direction is... More

Spent a Monday morning here walking around the paths to see the waterfalls. It had rained a fair bit the previous few days so they were more than just trickles. It was just a nice quiet place to wander around with views over to the coast.

We were on a photography trip to the Antrim coast & diverted over to shoot the waterfalls. The signage is absolutely appalling at the visitor centre. We chose the most likely path, weighed down with camera gear and tripods and after trekking for half an hour (whilst wondering if we were even on the correct path) we turned back &... More

I am a little bit biased when I discuss anything in County Antrim because it is my own County. But I have to say, Glenariff Forest Park is just stunning!!! I have been blessed with 6 children ranging from their late twenties to three years of age. This is the magical place that I have travelled to with them for... More

The forest park sits at the top of the Glen in Glenariff and is well worth a visit though all the facilities close at the end of October. the waterfall walk is well worth doing and takes you to the bottom of the Glen and back up the other side. The walk is about 3km and will take about one... More

We couldn't find the top entrance to the park - there didn't seem to be any signs from the A2. We headed instead to Laragh Lodge (which had signs). Decided to have lunch (see separate review) then explored the waterfalls. There are many lovely waterfalls and some are fairly easy to see. To see others you have to walk a... More

The waterfall walk is just breath taking! Beautiful views over the glen and the sound of the waterfalls - need to go there and enjoy the experience. The park is well maintained, the toilets clean and the café was ok - the restaurant we saw along the waterfall walk looked more promising! but there was a party going on so... More

There is a nice walk around the falls near Cushendum. We can enter the park from the top by following the sign but the prettiest part is at the bottom. To start there, look for the sign to Laragh Lodge, a restaurant 3 kilometers off the coastal road beside the base of the waterfall. Use the postal code BT44 OQX.... More
