We called into Glenariff forest to view the waterfall. (You will not be disappointed.) This is a peaceful place and everyone on the forest walk you meet speak to you, not like in England. If you are going just to view the waterfall top tip is to drive past the car park for the forest entrance and go away down... More

Glenariff Forest Park is an excellent place to go for scenic walks. There are a number of walks which can be taken. The routes are well pathed and easy to walk along. The waterfalls are a definite highlight of the park. There are a number of waterfalls which are all accessible along the paths.

Quite simply beautiful. Picturesque vistas and an incredible scenic walk to the waterfalls. The path is quite steep in places and there are steps, lots and lots of steps. It is not a difficult walk but the very young or elderly may struggle. Not really suitable for buggies. There is plenty of car parking space but the entrance is not... More

Wonderful facilities in absolutely stunning location. Waterfall walk is definitely worth the effort even on a damp day _ mind the steps as they can be slippery. You need to remember to bring along £1 coins for parking (5) as machine doesn't take notes. Lots of picnic tables to use, information available and whilst we did not use the tea... More

Our family (two adults, two older teens) enjoyed this park and hike tremendously. The view from the parking lot is just incredible, and the hike itself alongside the waterfall was very enjoyable -- not too strenuous or easy. So glad we did this, and fortunate that we came on a sunny day. Parking was ample.

My husband and I visited Glenariff Country Park, both not quite sure what was there. It was definitely worth the downhill hike, the waterfalls are beautiful and majestic. Hard work to walk back up to the car park but the view makes it worthwhile. I would add 1 thing, make sure you have £5 in coins for the car park... More

An amazing place..amazing. We went with 4 young kids. Most of it is fine with buggy but in hindsight we may have not used a buggy. Disappointing is that we decided to treat ourselves in the cafe. It was very expensive for very basic sandwiches and toasties. The order was wrong but I was too tired to argue. It was... More

We stopped here between Carrickfergus and Portrush and it was certainly a hidden gem. You have to pay five pounds to park and then you have full access to the whole parkland. We took the Waterfall Trail which is 3 km long and descends to the forest floor to see the Glenariff waterfall which was impressive as it had just... More

Glenariff Forest Park is situated in a beautiful area, with fabulous scenery. We were lucky to be there on a sunny day so that we could enjoy the broad panorama of sites. The park has paths leading to various scenic look-offs and a waterfall. There is a small interpretive centre for learning about the flora and fauna. There's also a... More
