Overview
More
The Antrim Castle Gardens site is an absolute gem and you will find nothing like these 400 year old gardens anywhere else. A recent £6m restoration project which received generous support from Heritage Lottery Fund has now preserved this historic site for generations to come. The Gardens are a unique living museum, with layer upon layer of design features and planting added over the centuries. Indeed, rarely is so much history preserved on one site. The many exceptional features include the ancient Motte, the Large Parterre, the Yew Tree Pond and the Pleasure Gardens.

Lot's of history to soak up and nature to view. A nice little gift shop and a museum to walk around and it's free to do so.

There is only a ruin of the Castle which burned down at the start of the 20th century. You mainly see and enjoy the gardens.
