Fun family day out
Located in County Antrim, Northern Ireland Glenariff Forest Park makes for a relaxing day out in the country.
We took a stroll along the waterfall trail, which is roughly 3km long. It takes you down into the gorge, starting near one end of the car park and looping around to bring you back near the end. The trail is steep in some areas but worth the effort to see the waterfalls. Down at the bottom section, you pass by a good size pub that serves a range of local cuisine and beers.
Up at the main car park, you'll find a visitors centre and café, though the cafe is only open seasonally. The visitor centre appears to be open all year round but is unmanned. Inside there is a range of displays that tell you about the history of the park, which is part of a National Nature Reserve that first opened over 80 years ago.
