About Glenarm

Glenarm is a small historic village that sits on the world-famous Antrim coast road (also known as the Causeway Coastal Route) and is the southernmost of the nine Glens of Antrim. Dating back to Norman times, Glenarm not only has a castle (Glenarm Castle, home of the McDonnells, Earls of Antrim (link)) with a beautiful walled garden that is open to the public between Easter and the autumn; a forest (Glenarm Forest that is the habitat of a range of wildlife including the red squirrel (link)) but also a busy marina. The Barbican Gate (pictured below at the end of Castle Street) built in 1825 now provides holiday accommodation right in the centre of the village. There are also other self-catering properties available in the vicinity as well as an award-winning B&B, ‘Water’s Edge’, which provides comfortable accommodation looking out to sea (http://www.watersedgeglenarm.com/).
