Glenariff is definitely worth the visit! We've hiked several trails but always return to the waterfall trail. Trails are kept in good repair but challenging. Views of the countryside, gorges, forests, and waterfalls are all spectacular!

Place to visit whenever you visit Belfast or NI. Extremely busy during season March - October, but peacefully quite off season. Come and taste Irish air and dive in the Cristal mountain stream. The view on hills and sea are fabulous and unforgettable. Do not forget to visit Park famous tea house.

Glenariff Forest Park is such a picturesque and charming place! It's a pity that we could not admire it in all its beauty. The Park must be a really fairy-like forest with the dense, emerald green foliage in the spring/summer. We walked the Waterfall Trail in the late November. The walk is around 2.5 km long; the footpaths are nice... More

Went here with my husband, friend and 12 year old godson and done the waterfalls walk, it's such a beautiful place. The walk probably takes about an hour and is fairly steep in places but well worth it the waterfalls and the views are beautiful. It's a must do if in northe Ireland.

Nice to go for a walk and see the waterfalls. There are plenty of routes from short strolls to long hikes.

We tried to follow a walk NI trail called dungonell way, a 16km circular route that starts away from the forest. Not very well signposted. The walk has some challenging hills but no mountain climbing, it's all on gravel. We met a local that pointed us towards a waterfall. I'm glad we got lost because the view from the top... More

On our past trip we were unable to visit Glenariff Forest Park due to closure. We went this time in October and hiked the waterfall trail. Spectacular fairy like forest with pathways leading to many lovely waterfalls. We hike for an hour and a half. The trail in parts were quite steep and some what uneven. Good sturdy shoes are...

Autumn, late morning. A lovely walk through the park, though some cajoling was required at the stepper sections. A section of the walk was barriered off for safety, as a section of handrail had been broken off. The diversion was quite short and rejoined the path as soon as possible. Toilets were open, but not the cafe or shop. It... More
