Attraction details
Owner description: The Antrim Castle Gardens site is an absolute gem and you will find nothing like these 400 year old gardens anywhere else. A recent £6m restoration project which received generous support from Heritage Lottery Fund has now preserved this historic site for generations to come. The Gardens are a unique living museum, with layer upon layer of design features and planting added over the centuries. Indeed, rarely is so much history preserved on one site. The many exceptional features include the ancient Motte, the Large Parterre, the Yew Tree Pond and the Pleasure Gardens.

Love going for a walk with the family in Antrim castle gardens when I go to Antrim. The gardens are so well kept and the coffee shop is lovely or you can walk to the lough which also has a great cafe will be up in July so will look forward to going for a walk with the kids and dog.

“Enchanting”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The gardens and the fresh clean feel of the place is well worth a visit. The Meandering stream through the gardens adds that special bit a beauty to the place. After your walks around the garden the coffee shop is a nice place to relax over a good cup of coffee and cakes.

“Astounding gardens & Buildings”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

I recently went there after the renovations were complete. Such a difference! There is now a coffee shop and improved gallery, theatre space and community centre rooms. I was there for a walk so didn't experience these. There are many different environments within one small space, so close to a bustling town is brilliant. There is a forest walk, duck pond, manucured gardens, farmed orchards and a lovely walk down the side of a river which takes you all the way to lough neigh shore. Only some of the paths are paved (others are muck or stones) so wheelchair not fully acessible.
