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

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Convenient location, located between the most popular tourist attractions. Beautiful views from the tent site. Cheap accommodation, warm showers and easy to get to Ballycastle. The owners were lovely and easy going. Happy to help.

    Disliked: 

    The 'working progress' element of the site. It could do with an injection of cash to upgrade and refresh the site. You can't fault the owners though, they are really lovely and are clearly dependent on the sites income, which must be difficult in quiet seasons.

    views from site.

    Disliked: 

    untidy pitches, Toilets and showers not suitable for amount of people on site. No play park for children, and do not have any policy's regarding sectarian Provocation with the singing of controversial songs, which could end in a very serious situation

From the manager...

in response to this review I can only take it that Robert is referring to the two days of the 11th and 12th of July when the site is completely full and for maybe an hour around 8 in the morning when everybody wants to use the facilities because I my self have been in the toilet/shower block and most of the cubicles are empty at other times, we cannot provide facilities to cover for everyone all the time, and if someone wants to have access to a toilet without having to wait a moment maybe they should consider paying for an ensuite room somewhere. as to the sectarian songs this is nonsense for Glenmore has a mix of people and anyone who is a frequent customer can confirm this, if someone in a tent next to you is singing a controversial song and you feel threatened in any way you should have informed the management, we have no record of you doing this. we do not condone any offensive songs and want everyone to enjoy the north coast in a friendly environment.

Regards Glenmore management.

    Stunning views, friendly staff, clean toilet & shower facilities. Beautiful sunshine our whole stay helped. ☀️Gorgeous sunsets & loved watching the sunrise over Rathlin Island one morning 🌅😁

    Disliked: 

    Broken bench & rusty metal junk discarded at picnic area.

    Showers do not accept new £1 coins. Only discovered this after undressing, setting toiletries out etc 😩 Had to return to tent...no old coins in purse...find fellow camper to swap coin...then return to showers & start again. Must say though, once I got it going, the shower was fabulous! 😄

From the manager...

we are so sorry about this, we are left in limbo land at the minute as the old coins are still being used to October, Will give my immediate attention to those benches though,

thanks for the review and glad you had a wonderful time.

    Lovely views

    Disliked: 

    Never any toilet tissue. Shouldn't have to pay for showers.as nowhere else in n.IRoland charges

From the manager...

thank you for the review, we did try the free shower thing but always had problems when sometime which became quite often of the showered being used to keep warm in cold days, or cool off in very warm days, the charge ensures that the showers are being released for other persons use we dropped our price when we changed the showers over, believe me we saw a great change when we made this decision as did frequent users of the site.

  • Liked: 

    The open space for kids to run around. The scenery and forest walks.

    Disliked: 

    No shop near by. The bar restaurant was overly dated. Asked for a pint and got the glass filled 3/4 the way. Nothing at all for kids to do. No parks nearby no football pitches ers.

From the manager...

so sorry about that drink we were training a new bar maid, and yes I had to correct her a few times about this, that one must have slipped by us (sorry) hope that is resolved now and she is an asset to our service, there is a great play park nearby, sorry this information did not get to you.

It's OK. Nothing more, nothing less... 15/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    Everything about this campsite is just OK. The sunset view over Rathlin Island was beautiful.

    Disliked: 

    Overpriced for what it is. You get what you pay for, but here you don't. Owners, whilst friendly enough, seriously need to get to grips with their own booking in system. Besides the pitches and roads/paths which are just ok, the rest of the land seems quite neglected, which is a shame, as this place could look an absolute gem.

From the manager...

sorry you had to wait two minutes on us finding your reservation, as it had only been made on pitchup. a catalogue of persons arriving is sent via their system to us each day you were not on this as you had only made your reservation, we explained this to you at the reception.
As regards to you wanting the site manicured to look like something in the city that will never happen as we pride our self's in blending in with the surrounding countryside and will never destroy this, so if you want a site that looks like a city carpark and this image is your Gem, then you should consider a campsite other than Glenmore,

Location

[[ campsite.name ]] [[ place.name ]]
  • 94 White Park Road Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, BT54 6LR
  • Timezone Europe/London BST (GMT+01:00)   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

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

National Trust

  • Carrick-a-Rede (1.9 miles)
