Glenarm Tourism Guided Walks

Walking Route
We offer guided walks on the 3rd Sunday of each month (register 2.00pm Glenarm Visitor Centre or 2.30pm at walk location), with exception of Easter Monday when the walk begins at 11.00am Glenarm Forest. The June walk is a Sunday evening stroll (6.00pm Glenarm Visitor Centre or 6.30pm at walk location).

Our walks are open to walkers of all fitness levels and are graded A or B according to the terrain and route of the walk. Walks usually last 2.5-3hrs and we enjoy refreshments picnic style after the walk.

Our programme for 2016 includes walk/talks on village architecture, christian heritage sites, archaeological monuments and special sites, flora, woodland, forest and a coastal walk at Waterfoot. Our March walk coincides with St Patrick's weekend and has an appropriate Christian heritage theme. We explore the interesting ruins of Old Feystown Church and village on private land behind the new Feystown Church.

Some of our best and most popular walks are in the Antrim Hills where we are privileged to walk on private lands and access a well preserved Souterrain.

The highlight of our walking year is our festival. This year planned for 30th September & 1st October 2017.

We also offer short themed walks on a daily basis, with prior arrangement, in and around Glenarm; village architecture, coastal flora & fauna or seabirds, the red squirrel sculpture trail and a church trail including ruins of the old friary.

Half day hill walking activities can be arranged to include the archaeology at Knockdhu on private land and the Game of Thrones filming locations at Cairncastle.


Walking base is Glenarm Village and in 2017 walks are located along the Antrim Coast, from Kilwaughter through Cairncastle and Glenarm as far as Cushendun and inland to Feystown, Knockdhu the Braid Valley and Carnlough Hills.
