About

One of our lesser known ‘hidden treasures’, Gleno is a magnificent 30 foot waterfall nestling in The Glens of Antrim and owned by the National Trust.

A short stroll from the car park leads you through trees to a viewing bridge, where you can see one of the most picturesque waterfalls in Northern Ireland, tucked into a small lush glen.

This short walk is well sign-posted and has a network of many steps and paths. The steps meander up and down the sides of this moist valley to enable walkers to get good views of the waterfall with the waterfall looking its best after rainfall. Ground is uneven and steep as it is a deep gorge and wet underfoot due to running water and spray. Dogs should be kept under the control of their owner.

Popular photographic location with visitors coming from near and far and part of the Causeway Coastal Driving Route so be sure to visit next time you are in the area.

The waterfall is a short walk from the historic village of Gleno, with its traditional whitewashed houses on the hill. It is also within easy reach of The Dairy bistro, butchers and farm shop.
