Glenarm Castle Opening Times & Prices


Due to the recently imposed lockdown, we will remain closed at this time. However, we look forward to welcoming you back when it is safe to do so.

With its own special place in local history, Glenarm Castle is a true national treasure. One of Ireland's oldest estates, and home to the Earls of Antrim, Glenarm Castle is a 'must see' destination and one of N.Ireland's top tourist attractions. Whilst here, visitors can enjoy beautiful scenery and enchanted walks in our historic Walled Garden and *Castle Trail, excellent locally sourced food in our charming Tea Room, a little bit of retail therapy in our Byre Shop and a visit to Shambles Workshop featuring bespoke retro up-cycled items, photography, jewelry and other crafts.
