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

The falls were at a short distance away from the coastal causeway route and are well worth the detour if you around..

Tip - pick up a map at the cafe. We got there early and we were first out on the Waterfall Trail which meant we had a bonus red squirrel sighting - unfortunately too quick for my camera. The walk was strenuous but quite manageable. The waterfalls were stunning, including the short diversion in the first section - worth doing.... More

We spent a wet Sunday afternoon walking around the various trails on site. The rain came and went but when it got a little heavier we took cover under trees or in the huts located at various points on the trails. The waterfall trail is a must do as these are a beautiful natural sight to behold

This place is for the nature lovers with different trekking paths. We chose the Waterfalls path with 3 different cascades.

Costing on £5 to park, this attraction is good value for money. There are several walks, of varying lengths and difficulty, at the forest park. We'd gone to see the waterfalls, so that is the walk we did. The walk is 3km long, on good, well maintained footpaths. However, it is very steep in places - remember, if you go... More

Visiting Glenariff Forest Park gives you access to several walks, at least two of which take you down to the bottom of the valley to view a number of beautiful waterfalls. Although it's possible to park at the bottom of the valley and access from there instead near Laragh Lodge.
