Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    On our way from a holiday on the north coast, down to Belfast, we called in on a wet morning.
    The garden is an absolute delight - full of lush, healthy plants, many of which I didn’t recognise. And so much colour and variety, in a beautiful relaxed style. I wish we could have stayed longer.

    A reminder of better days, thanks to Ballyclare council. A fitting memorial to the late Prince Bira of Thailand (d.1985). Unfortunately, some local defectives have sought to deface the display with felt tip pens. Utterly disgusting. Pity public flogging isn't available.was

    A bit difficult to find but if you go to the very back of the modern Rashee Cemetery you will find the old Cemetery. The sign and gravesite map at the gate are a bit deceiving because the “entrance” refers to the old entrance at the other end of the site. Once that was figured out, we were able to find the ancestors we were looking for.

    Went here with a mixed group of kids, the young girls were invited to a birthday celebration at Princess Parties and had a magical experience with tonnes of support from the beautiful looking, grown up princesses.

    The young lads went to an indoor nerf battle and afterwards came out every bit as excitedand happy as the girls were, all the kids were in bed by 8 PM that night as they were exhausted.
    While the young ones were being entertained, I took my teenage boy and girl to the airsoft which was out of this world, thankfully it was a good dry day so we played outdoors but seeing as it's usually raining in this country, they have an indoor arena to ensure weather doesn't stop play. All staff were very pleasant, informative and couldnt do enough to ensure we had a truly amazing experience.
    I look forward to visiting again.

    I've fished Straid many times but have never found it easy to catch the rainbow trout stocked here. At times they will snap at anything pulled across their noses but most evenings in summer they become obsessed with a hatch of very small insects, and nothing but an exact imitation will entice them. I suppose that's the challenge of fishing.
    I've always found that taking a boat gives you the best chance as there is a considerable size of lake to cover.

    What a wonderful experience with these magnificent birds. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves nature and is interested in the preservation of these wonderful creatures. It is also just great fun!

    This was not too fish, Only too fine out what it would take to bring my son and his two son's my grandsons 9-6.
    The man l met could not have been more helpful as long as l had the paper work the rest of the gear was on site that we would need, plus a good set up of a cafe. If we needed the boys looked after they could help with that. For reasons that don't matter WE could not take up the offer of help, the only down side for me was a bit out of the way but it is well sign posted but we were told that it was almost 90% that we would catch and net some thing. It was so relaxing in the area pity we could not go. GOOD LUCK

    Played foot golf with a family group of 10 today. What a fantastic afternoon we had. The course was beautifully looked after and well set up. It was accessible for us all and everyone had an absolute ball.
