“Great family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Carnfunnock is a great day out for all the family! There is plenty to entertain kids of all ages. There is a fantastic maze and numerous walks with beautiful views over the coast. There are a couple of cafe's and a fantastic play park and outside giant draughts area. There is a miniature train, crazy golf, go karts for the kids, giant inflatable water balls, remote control vehicles, bouncy castle and bungee run to name a few of the outdoor activities. There is also a place for children to have glitter tattoos applied. All activities were a very reasonable price.
Well worth a visit!

“Magic family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Brilliant safe scenic walks, and lots of adventure. Education stops along the walk to highlight the wildlife and greenery. Fabulous play park, pitch and putt, mini train, remote control boats, maze, etc. great area for a picnic and great start to a drive along the Antrim coast. You could spend a full day here and still want to come back. Highly recommended and great for kids of all ages. Exercise machines along the walk ways can entertain the parents!!

“Family fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is a great place to visit on a nice sunny day. they put on lots of activities over the holidays and the kids always enjoy these. we usually take a picnic and make a wee day of it. the play park here is excellent and the little train is great too (bring change to go on this) there are lots of things for older kids to do but not so much for pre schoolers but we never find this a problem as my kids love the play park so much.
