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 – we’re tempted to say ‘in the world’ here, but then we’re biased…

It’s a whopper of a park at 95 acres and there are several different camping 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.

Either way, we expect to hear Green Glens of Antrim being softly crooned to your loved ones – and dog – for as long as you can get away with. Newbies are well catered for: just ask the very friendly owners if you need help with your van, 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 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.

Our facilities include: a modern shower block, laundry facilities, fly fishing on site, walks, barbecue and picnic areas, restaurant with breakfast available and a play area.

If you have never had any experience of fly fishing, there are lessons available and rods available for hire.

Please note

    An upgrade to camping facilities inc a campers kitchen ( kettle, toaster, hob, microwave.. maybe) would top this location off to perfection esp with kids .

    Disliked: 

    inaccurate site info (not 0.5 miles form Carrick-a-Rede but 2.5 miles)
    cash only (not aware before)
    not particularly friendly on arrival although did warm a bit

From the manager...

Dear Guests
Thank you for the review, we are sorry you were feeling left out on your arrival, we are naturally very friendly people and love ensuring that you are made to feel welcome at all times and usually we can make friendly guests feel welcome very quickly at Glenmore, ? don't know what happened here.
Glenmore is indeed just half a mile away from Carrick-a-Rede , but if you visit the bridge from the Ballintoy entrance by car I would put the distance about 3 miles as you have to drive 1.5 miles past the bridge to that entrance and parking area, then you have a good mile to walk back towards Glenmore on the lower path to access the bridge,
Regards John

    Showers weren't free - costing £1 for 6 minutes - even though it cost £32 for 2 nights of pitching a tent!
    Bar wasn't great, expensive, flat drinks and very small seating area

  • 94 White Park Road Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, BT54 6LR
  • Timezone Europe/London GMT (GMT+00:00)   GPS 55.2202°N 6.3124°W

Directions


Glenmore is on the coast road 8 miles from the Giant's Causeway and a half mile from the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, the road is the B15 and called the White Park Road and goes from Bushmills to Ballycastle.

Bus no. 172 stops right outside Glenmore House and the campsite.

Local attractions

Just leave the park and start strolling: there are wondrous walks all around, with Antrim wildlife and birds abounding, or giddy up by cantering around the coast on horseback.

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

Seaside town Ballycastle is a mere three miles away for more traditional music on Friday nights in the very old House of McDonnell pub, and is also 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.

The Manor House hotel dishes up top local grub including freshly caught lobster and more champ, and pub grub is available in the nearby bar – or grab a crab burger from Chip Ahoy: just look to the right for the van once you get off the ferry.

For day trips, the seaside towns of Portrush and Portstewart are where many N Ireland 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.

Any golfers worth their tees need to get along to the Royal Portrush Golf Club, which is the only club in N Ireland to have hosted the Open and which is just 12 miles away from Glenmore. Or pack the paintbox and hit the beach: there are several gorgeous sandy spots along the Antrim Coast, such as the painters’ paradise Ballintoy Harbour.

Must see
