Had a very nice walk through beautiful grounds but sadly the castle walk was closed which it is when the family are in residence. I don't think the ticket should be the same price if this is the case. Very nice cafe and shop, friendly...More

Enjoyed this trip but would agree with previous review when you compare free entrance to the Walled Garden Bangor and how well laid out it is - makes you ponder. You can cover the Glenarm gardens in around 15 minutes. There is no access to...More

Dogs are not allowed in the gardens or surrounded area. The only walk we saw was along the coast just outside Glenarm.
