Glenarm Castle Tea Rooms

Glenarm Castle, ancestral home of the McDonnell family, Earls of Antrim, offers much of interest including The Walled Garden (open 10-6 daily, Easter-Sep). The Castle itself is also open several times a year.


The Tea Room, in the old Mushroom House overlooking the kitchen garden, is open to the general public and makes a lovely stopping off place when touring on the coast road.


It is a charming setup and they offer tasty snacks, such as an all day breakfast bagel with organic scrambled egg and local bacon; seafood chowder; homemade bruschetta; Tuscan tart dressed with olives & pesto; and a dish called the hot goat: marinated chicken breast topped with goat's cheese, chorizo sausage and chilli jam. Also sandwiches, and homemade cream tea, with organic teas and various coffees.


There is also a gift shop in the Tea Room, selling quality Glenarm Castle merchandise, and gardening gifts.


*Glenarm Castle Organic Farm produces organic lamb and pedigree Shorthorn Beef. Working in patnership with Peter Hannan of Hannan Meats (see entry), Glenarm Castle Estate has established the Glenarm Shorthorn Beef brand, which is in great demand and features on top menus in the region.

Tea Room open: March-September, Mon-Sat 10-5, Sun 11-5. (Last orders 30 minutes before closing time). abbreviations
