Glenariff Forest Park is situated amid the world famous Glens of Antrim, an area to which visitors have been coming for over a century. Glenariff, the Queen of the Glens, is considered by many people to be the most beautiful of the 9 Antrim Glens.

The Park, now including the former Parkmore Forest, covers an area of 2928 acres of which 2224 acres has been planted with trees. The remainder consists of several small lakes, recreation areas and open space left for landscape and conservation reasons. Bisecting the Park are 2 small but beautiful rivers; the Inver and the Glenariff, containing spectacular waterfalls, tranquil pools and stretches of fast flowing water tumbling through rocky steep-sided gorges.

As you make your way to the park via the coastal road, you’ll be constantly delighted as dramatic headland and scenic bays come into view. On a clear day, you may even be able to enjoy uninterrupted views of Scotland’s Mull of Kintyre. Upon arrival, you’ll be served refreshments of tea or coffee and delicious homemade scones at the famous Glenariff Tea House, before enjoying some free time to explore the Park independently.  

The return drive will take you along the inland route, offering a contrast of scenery.
