This was a pit stop for our 15 day Ireland tour in May. My knee was hurting bad and so I did not get to wander far - but what I saw and what I heard from others - this was a nice walk. I could see one large falls from the parking area but apparently there are three and... More

A lovely day out walking in this beautiful forest park. One of the walks to the waterfalls was closed but their was an alternative, bit of an incline but certainly worth the effort. It was a beautifully sunny day bluebells still out. Make the trip

Spent a long weekend at Glenariff forest campsite. Very basic, very isolated but we had a great time. Quiet and very scenic location, real bonus was the little fire pits where we tried with little success to light a campfire in the rain lol. The shower block leaves a lot to be desired and lets it down a lot. First... More

Had a great wee day here. Done the waterfall walk, a little fitness needed for this getting back up again and decent footwear (not pumps) lol. Highly reccommend this for the stunning views of part of our wee country. Lovely restaurant/bar/gift shop at the bottom also with carpark, minutes away from the waterfalls if ur not as able for the... More

Nice drive up to the park, and pleasant walks within it. Unfortunately the main attraction (for me) was closed: the Waterfall Trail. Still, I got to see another waterfall on another trail, and the trees and hills were beautiful.

One of the loveliest spots of Northern Ireland - Glenariff forest park is a charming site that has some nice walks in the wood. The one I highly recommend id the Falls' walk. You walk downhill for 35-40 minutes all along streams and falls - simply lovely. Once you get to the bottom of the walk - enjoy a nice... More

This is a really nice park, with walks, forests, views, waterfalls and rushing rivers. Drops a star however, for what appears to be a long term closure of the waterfalls walk that we had planned to do, and unclear information as to if and when it'll be fixed. To be fair, there are temporary signs to get you down to... More

What a shame so much of the area is 'closed off' right now and they still charge an entry fee! Did enjoy a short walk incorporating one of the waterfalls which was beautiful. Will go again after Spring in the hope that it's all open again (including the Visitor Centre) - maybe we could even 'cheat' and use the same... More

The waterfall here is beautiful and is easily accessible for those not wanting to hike. Some reviews talked about the path to the falls being closed, but it was open when we went in late September. Some of the trails were closed, but others were open. Everything is green and lush, and the forest envelops you as you walk. The... More
