“Amazing old fashioned tea room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Glenarm castle tea room provides a varied menu and being a regular customer I have tried most dishes on the menu and have never had anything other than the finest quality! The tea room is rather small due to the fact its in a historical castle this cannot be helped, and its well worth the wait on busier days! Scones, cakes and traybakes are not to be missed! You can tell everything is home baked and freshly made. They have a range of gluten free products which are fantastic as well! The staff are friendly, accommodating and very efficient in serving as quickly as possible. Afternoon tea is great, especially if you're with guests! An excellent cafe and would recommend it to everyone!

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

The guided tour was very interesting and the guide was ready to answer any questions that were thrown at her. I loved the stories about the family who`ve been living there for many generations now and the gardens are also beautiful.

“Castle Gardens and Coffee Shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Visitors to this area please stop in Glenarm village and have a little wander round the village and marina and along the Layde Walk which gives wonderful views of the marina and Glenarm castle. After this make your way to the castle gardens where you can have a tasty snack in their lovely coffee shop and then take the garden tour which is just stunning in the summer months not to be missed!!!!

Great day out for everyone, wide variety of attractions to see and do. Well organised with traffic signposts and parking. We were just passing through but will definitely go back.
