I visited this gorgeous place 19/07/2015. The forest was lovely to walk around and I was amazed at the waterfalls, they are beautiful. Would definitely recommend this.

A calm and serene stop in the Nine Glens of Antrim. Due to the construction going on in the carpark the main gate was closed and it said no admission to cars and people or something similar. It put us off as we had driven quite a bit to get here and I really wanted to experience it. We saw... More

We needed to work off a huge breakfast but was we arrived at the bottom, saw that the road to the teahouse takes you down to the bottom of the falls. It's a good long hike up to the top which is great if you are up to it. Great views and birding along the way. Falls are lovely and... More

This glen was even better than I was expecting. Fantastic views over the valley at the top, with the sea in the distance and amazing waterfalls, through the woodland. A must for any keen walkers.

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 :)
