About the event
Allow your imagination to roam free as you are guided through the enchanting village of Glenarm, with a claim to being the oldest chartered village in the island of Ireland, before finishing your journey at the magnificent Glenarm Castle Estate.
Led by local storyteller and tour guide Janice Witherspoon, you will hear tales of history, folklore and fairy.
Your journey begins at the Glenarm Visitor Centre perched upon the picturesque marina, then winding through the old village streets. Enjoy the sights of charming old streets such as The Vennel and impressive local landmark buildings such as the Barbican or Glenarm Bridge.
Make your way into the historic Glenarm Castle Estate, the ancestral home of the Earls of Antrim, which has been at the heart of the village for over 400 years, to hear tales of the McDonnells.
Finally, you can finish your tour by stopping into the new Heritage Centre or eat your fill of tasty treats in one of the Estate’s many eateries - the perfect way to end a trip to a bygone age.
(Please note this walk starts at the Glenarm Tourist/ Visitor Centre which is the blue building by the marina)
