The sign said closed for cars and walkers, when you got all the way to the park. They might have warned you before. Some cars were parked there, but it is a step to the main paths. A local came along and gave us the trick. Go back down the hill and follow the sign for Laragh Lodge. There is... More

After reading about nine Glens of Atrim, we looked for an ideal place to experience and Glenariff Forrest seem to be ideal one. We came from Belfast city airport in rental car and initially disappointed seeing the sign indicating access closed for cars and pedestrians. There were around 6 or 7 cars parked in front of the gate as well.... More

Great spot and still retains its natural beauty despite increased number of tourists from locally, nationally and internationally. Entrance charges reasonable, good facilities, managed and well maintained. A must for anyone, either alone, with family or friends, with or without children.

Even though we went on a really rainy day, we still enjoyed the endless paths, amazing waterfalls and just the scenery from the top of the park. very tranquil and beautiful place! (smaller kids my find it quite tiring though :)

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
