Glenmore Caravan and Camping Park

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • 95-acre park in one of the nine glens of Antrim
  • Views towards Rathlin Island, Islay and the Mull of Kintyre
  • Traditional music, bar, restaurant and fly fishing

More glens? Yes please.

You’ll be belting out the lyrics of Green Glens of Antrim as soon as you set eyes on this park, set in an Area of Outstanding Beauty in one of the nine Antrim glens. Glenmore Caravan and Camping Park is between Ballintoy and Ballycastle, in prime position for some of the most eye-watering scenery in the country – you might be tempted to say ‘in the world’ when you see it…

Glenmore is a whopper of a park at 95 acres and there are several different pitching areas available, so you can pitch up with the kids or hide away with your other half in a romantic corner to take in the viewpoints across to Rathlin Island, the Mull of Kintyre or Islay. Newbies are well catered for: just ask the very friendly owners if you need help with your van or tent or how to pick something to do from the vast range of activities in the area if you’re using the park as your touristy base at any time of the year.

Northern Ireland is great for fishing but anglers won’t have to go too far with the fly fishing lake right on site stocked with brown and rainbow trout, before trying some champ in the restaurant and settling in for the night in the Glenmore bar. If you're new to fly fishing, lessons are available and guests can hire rods.

If your family or suffering other half are threatening divorce as you sing Green Glens of Antrim yet again, they’ll be easily pacified: the two young women resident at the park are members of the traditional Irish band Tir na Og and can usually be persuaded to give a few songs and tunes any night. Harmony reigns…

    The campsite had a great location and everything that we needed for our stay.
    It was really great having the bar on site for a drink in the evening. It was very close to so many top attractions on the north coast.

Directions


Local attractions

Both Ballintoy and Ballycastle are on the coast road to Giant’s Causeway, the alleged stomping ground of giant Finn McCool and the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland. Make a day of it by quivering across the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (don’t look down) and calm your nerves afterwards with a toddy and a tour at Bushmills Distillery.

Ballycastle is the ferry point for Rathlin Island, six miles off the coast. This RSPB reserve and tiny island is a must-see: get the Puffin Bus to the west coast to peer at the colourful critters up close, then stroll south to see the seals and the ruined stone cottages from days of yore.

For day trips, the seaside towns of Portrush and Portstewart are where many Northern Irish folk meander to on a sunny day: Barry’s Amusements in Portrush is an institution, and Portstewart has to be visited for a roll down the sand dunes.

Must see

  • Giant's Causeway, Antrim, Northern Ireland (8.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Carrick-a-Rede (1.9 miles)
