Great place to visit for lovely photographs. Can be muddy in places and handrails covered in green so best not to wear good clothes when visiting. That said my 89 year old mother who walks with the aid of a stick and has limited vision...More

There's a parking area near the waterfall. In fact, you can hear it as soon as you jump out of the car. Free to park, free to see. Worth the visit but as others have said, not worth doing if it's the only thing you're...More

Lovely waterfall not far off the costal route and as others have said well worth a visit. Doesn't take long, the car park is free and we found easy to find once in Gleno as there are plenty of brown signs to get you to...More

We had to ask a member of staff at Larne's tourist info centre for directions, but once we got there it was deemed well worth the twisty roads! A simply beautiful waterfall with clear water - my mum and brother were playing Pooh sticks in...More

Lovely waterfall. Car parking and short stroll to the waterfall. Makes for great photos. Glenn village doesn't have much to offer just a small shop. Larne town is a ten mins drive away.

Glenco waterfall is definately worth the trip. Despite poor weather this place is magical. Just wrap up warm!

This waterfall is only 4 miles from my home. I love it because it's forever changing. I could go there every day and the light and shadows are different, the sounds are different and even the atmosphere. This place is very popular with tourists and...More

1min to the waterfall but theres also a further walk up a lot of steps
Can you tell us please of how to get to the waterfall and the area this is near , we are visiting in June/July and have just heard about the waterfalls so we are changing plans to visit, I keep e-mailing about the Gobbins Path to the National Trust but sadly they do not answer 3 times now, can you also help us with any news of how the work is progressing. Thanks appreciate your help. Ken.

The best way to get to Gleno is by car as the bus service is poor. A taxi would cost five or six pounds each way but whilst the waterfall and Gleno is lovely it does not take all that long to visit them so please take this... More
