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

And a lovely coffee shop serving a small selection of hot food and sandwiches. Gardens are fantastic with an amazing array of fruit trees. Well worth £6 entry fee.

Lovely gardens, which we were amazed to find is tended by only one gardener with help from his son. We were here in August and the blooms were spectacular. Tea rooms are good as well, though only had coffee so can't comment on the food.

The castle itself is private but on most days you can visit the gardens. Beautiful planting, well maintained including an old-fashioned greenhouse.

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