With luck you will visit Slemish on a clear and dry day, in which case it is excellent and you will enjoy great views. On a wet and grey day it's still worth a visit but you won't be able to see nearly as far....More

It’s a bit of a climb, but the views are worth every step. North Ireland is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited. This hike has 2 approaches to reach the summit. One is more challenging than the other. The more gentle path...More

On a very cold St Patrick's Day I decided to tackle Slemish mountain just a few miles out from County Antrim village of Broughshane. Climbing Slemish mountain is a very popular thing to do every St Patrick's Day due to the legend of St Patrick...More

We climbed to the top with our dog and found the climb manageable and enjoyable. The views from the top are fantastic - out to the coast, the glens and across farmland. We found the descent tricky, especially with a dog on a lead, and...More

Great day, nice walk that the 3 year old daughter could handle, only downside was the toilets at the bottom, lights didn't work, no soap, and generally a mess.

Parking and climb are free. Opens 24/7. Take care about proper footwear, it is extremely slippery, when wet. Not suitable for little kids (under 8-9) as there is no paved or pre made trail up to the pinnacle.
