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.

    The location of the campsite is just off the main road but you can't see it from where you stay. We camped on the hill and the view was epic! It overlooks the sea and is very nice and remote. The actual camping ground isn't nice green soft grass but more thick sharper type vegetation so if you haven't got a ground mat its not ideal. The ground is super flat though and theres a water tap in the middle which is very accessible and saves walking to the bathrooms. The bathrooms are about a 1 minute walk towards the main house which is chilled. In terms of location its perfect for visiting all the coastal tourist spots. Ballycastle is also just around the corner which has so some epis Irish pubs. Overall a perfect stay, lovely hosts who were hilarious and would love to return in the future if I head back.

  • Liked: 

    As before l like the way they have the right amount of tent pitches to caravan both the same nearly. Accommodation,meals,bar, on site loverly staff and cleaners.
    As above I like this site as it’s small and no late activities ie music.
    And of course good sea and land views from top of hill tent pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Some work need on rest rooms on site nothing that can’t be fixed, no toilet seat on one toilet, pan not screwed to floor properly on another toilet cracked floor tiles, tripping hazard. No hot water when I was there in the utility room.
    the layout could do with a clean up but again that probably on going.
    As in my last feedback top tent areas not to child friendly due to the fence being in need of repair. This is to stop you from going to near the edge of the hill.

    we pitched the tent on the rise overlooking the bay one of the most beautiful views ever. bus stop to bushmills was right outside the site so you can enjoy the distillery tour without driving buses seemed to stop early evening. taxi to ballycastle was about £8 mortons chippy wasn't great but fish and chips in cafe on front was far better . o'connors was great for food and music there was also a chinese take away further up on the right which was also good . showers on camp site could be better £1 for 6mins and you have to press the button in to often but nothing to put me off going there again overall it was an enjoyable stay thou i didn't eat or drink in the bar

    Got a lovely grass pitch over looking the ponds to the back of the site. Weather was fab. The guest house also had a singer on Friday and Saturday night which was great.

    Disliked: 

    Its a long walk form the lower site to the toilet waste disposal and waste water disposal. Although they are building a new toilet block at the lower sites, so should be ok next year.

    The toilet block needs updated and looked after more regularly when there are a lot of caravans on site as it ran out of toilet roll and soap too often.

    Small clean site good views from hill top tent pitches.
    Rooms & meals on site if needed.
    (Not to many sites I have seen cater for tents so much as this little site does.) Apparently there seems more tent pitches then caravan ones personally I wish more sites would follow this sites plan for tent to caravan mix
    So well done I would recommend this site to anyone. I did not try the WiFi or the rooms on site that’s why I have given 3 & 4 stars to these areas on this page.
    This is what makes me come back as it’s also with in reach of all sea side areas.
    There is traffic passing near the front of the site so you do get the noise but this puts me to sleep funny I know but that’s me....

    Disliked: 

    Grass badly needs reseeded as there are lots of bald areas on the back down hill
    Pitches to the right side of the driveway just before the small fishing lake.
    And the hill top pitches could do with the land being a bit more level as you are pitched slightly down hill if you put your tent on the front grass pitches for the best views. The hill top pitches are not to friendly for family’s with small children as the fence that stops you going down hill needs to be replaced this is all I would very kindly recommend .

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

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.
