Glenarm sits on the Antrim coast and is the southernmost of the nine Glens of Antrim. Dating back to Norman times, this small historic village 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 a ‘B & B’, ‘Water’s Edge’, which provides comfortable accommodation looking out to sea (http://www.watersedgeglenarm.com/).
