Fantastic trails,beautiful scenery and utterly stunning waterfalls. Carpark and access are currently under construction,signage is very poor which causes confusion on entry/ exit. Aside from that, it was fab and we will return!

This is a beautiful park with a very spectacular waterfall. The Waterfall walk is mildly challenging when walking back up the path, but definitely worth the effort!

Beautiful cottage accommodating 6-8 people, self catering facilities, reasonable price and friendly owners nearby. The forest was amazing - so many walks and waterfalls to explore. Fantastic that red squirrels are being offered a sanctuary too..!

Although the park is undergoing extensive work at the minute, there's no getting away from the beauty of this place . Many walks to chose from . We picked the waterfall walk with the walkway by the river. Great day out. Staggering scenery .

We arrived at Glenariff at 1230 and joined a long queue of cars to get in. Ongoing work meant reduced car parking was available. The main car park was full, so we parked on driveway - £5 was good value for money, as we were there most of the afternoon. We did the Waterfalls Trail, which was a steep climb... More

The walks here, especially out of season, afford great views of 'the queen of the Glens', Glenariff and the recently completed waterfalls walk takes you up close to two of Northern Ireland's most spectacular waterfalls.

I understand that there is work going on here at the minute, but there was a lack of information available for us. There was no indication of opening times for the shops etc and all were deserted when we were there. Also the "waterfall" trail was lovely on the way down, but a long hard uphill slog on the way...

We accessed the waterfalls by the lower entrance which takes you up to the main falls from the car park next to Laragh Lodge restaurant. We only had time for a short walk, so this was ideal. However, you can visit far more on foot if you park and pay £5 at the top in the large car park further... More

Why pay mega bucks for Giants Causeway just to have photos of a few rocks? This place is £5 for parking but you could easily spend all day here walking and taking in great views of the many waterfalls. We kind of cheated, we parked outside the gates for free - sorry! but we did arrive an hour before the... More

Glenariff Forest Park must be one of the most magical places I have ever visited! We completed the Waterfall Trail which was absolutely lovely, with two very impressive huge waterfalls. The flora and fauna of Glenariff are a delight, and everything is visitor-friendly and well sign-posted. Lots of parking and stunning views down to the sea. Super café to enjoy... More
