Great choice of walks round the park, some fantastic views and the waterfalls are worth seeing. Also a fantastic café on site serving freshly made food. Well worth £5

Not one of NI main attractions however it was a nice break from the masses of tourists who inhabit the other attractions. It is only £5 to park which is the only price needed to pay, the walking is as long as you want to make it as there are numerous routes to take. Strong recommend.

Glenariffe Forest Park is breathtaking. It is opposite the Glenariff caravan and camping park which is run by the Forestry Dept. It has fantastic walks and a beautiful walk down the river gorge to Lara Lodge where you can have a meal or a drink. The waterfalls just need to be seen!

Walked up along the back and then down to the waterfall trail - all total for us about 7 km although the waterfall route itself is only 1.5 km. There is ample parking and bus tours come here. There is a gift shop and restaurant and then a little exploratory section on the plants and animals in the area. The... More

We arrived at Glenarriff expecting to pay a £5 parking charge. However we were pleasantly surprised to find no-one on the barrier and the parking machine marked as out of use! There are three walks, all clearly waymarked. We followed the waterfall walk, which eventually passes some lovely waterfalls in a shaded green valley. The waterfalls differ in shape and... More

Explored Glenarrif Forest Park with my family. My three young kids enjoyed this amazing adventure, they loved the waterfalls and climbing trees. We even saw a red squirrel! The weather was ideal for walking in the forest and we all had binoculars so there was plenty of bird watching to be done. We loved watching dippers flying along the river... More

Very easy to drive to and find. Obviously being developed as the car park was brand new. No one on the gate or machines working so our day was free but info suggest it would normally cost £5. Even if you have to pay this the day is well worth this! Cafe was lovely as were the ladies cooking and... More

Beautiful glen with a great walkway to see a series of fabulous waterfalls. We parked a Laragh Lodge instead of the official parking spot. This was a great spot for lunch and the waterfalls trail can be reached right behind the lodge. The water is the color of Guiness and you can view them perfectly via a foot bridge. One... More

We walked the three kilometer waterfall trail and were thoroughly impressed by the beauty of the falls. Step after step you encounter rushing waterfalls, trees and green foliage. The path is well marked and maintained. We had young children with us and still managed the trail without any trouble. Excellent outing into nature.
