We had a difficult time locating this using our GPS but once we got to Waterfoot, we just followed the local signs. The views were all so beautiful. A nice drive on the coast for sure!

The Glens of Antrim are green and beautiful. Sheep and cows are everywhere! Beautiful Irish countryside! Worth seeing with your own eyes!

The nine Glens of Antrim run backwards from the sea into the Antrim Plateau. Starting at the most southerly glen, Glenarm, which is fronted by the pretty village of Glenarm, you proceed northwards to Glencloy at Carnlough. As you turn into Red Bay and pass through Waterfoot the most spectacular glen, Glenariff, sits as the backdrop. Glenariff - the 'queen... More

One of my favourite stretches for road biking. Climb up through the outstanding mountainous scenery , following the river right up through the valley and looping onto Glenaan. Glens of Antrim is such a special place, cultural heartland of Causeway Coastal Route !

We had such a great time here on Easter Sunday. I have been visiting since a young child and it is good to see that much of its original charm is still there. I would love to see the path fully restored and the rainbow bridge coloured Windows again, even in green, orange and clear Perspex.

The nine Glens of Antrim are amazing areas of natural and really outstanding beauty.I second as it is claimed.They are truly the 9 gems of Antrim. The road is in very good condition though little tortuous as in all hilly areas except towards Cushedun where its narrow. If you are an admirer of nature then its the trip you should... More

Beautiful glens, forests and waterfalls. Forests looked like the knights of Ni might come popping out at any moment. Great walking here. Learned what a true Irish bog was like when we got off the trail a bit!!

It is hard to out into words how lovely this place is. I was only able to take in Glenariff but I was stunned by it's natural beauty. We hiked a lovely footpath to the bottom and back and had a wonderful walk. I would love to visit other areas of the Glens the next time I visit.

Definitely a very different scenery to the other side of the coastal route you will thoroughly enjoy the views and drops and the splendour of nature here. We couldn't visit all the glens as we were on a time limit but would like to return and make another attempt at the coastal route.
