Lovely gardens, which we were amazed to find is tended by only one gardener with help from his son. We were here in August and the blooms were spectacular. Tea rooms are good as well, though only had coffee so can't comment on the food.

The castle itself is private but on most days you can visit the gardens. Beautiful planting, well maintained including an old-fashioned greenhouse.

We met up with family here and had a walk around the gardens, followed by lunch in the tearoom. The walled garden was delightful. I loved the veg beds and the greenhouses with fruit plants. The rills were a nice feature but the pond that...More

Dogs are not allowed in the gardens or surrounded area. The only walk we saw was along the coast just outside Glenarm.
