‪Wonderful Gardens‬
أكتوبر 2021
‪How lucky are the residents of Antrim?! We did not have a lot of time to spend here, but these gardens, so close to town, are truly wonderful; there is something for everyone, all ages are catered for, and the cafe and shops in the courtyard are well worth visiting too. We loved the motte and the riverside.‬

‪Amazing Gardens‬
أغسطس 2021
‪We visited the gardens in the height of the summer, weather was great. The grounds are so vast you feel like you have the place to yourselves. Lots of people about but didn't feel busy.
There is lots to explore, you could spend hours here. Parking is limited but you can also access the gardens from the town i believe. Would recommend, and definitely visit again.‬

‪Well maintained grounds.‬
الأصدقاء • سبتمبر 2021
‪I enjoyed a lengthy walk through the gardens with a local friend (& dog) who was knowledgeable about the history of the gardens & surrounding area. Very well maintained gardens with plenty of humorous wood sculptures. There were plenty of other visitors in the grounds with young children & dogs. Plenty of seated areas with which to view the ducks & grey squirrels.‬

‪Great place for a dog walk‬
الأصدقاء • سبتمبر 2021
‪We love walking the dogs here, it’s a beautiful place and the sights are varied from walking through the forest to walking through the gardens, the dog parks are great and I love how you can walk in a variety of directions and each will take you somewhere different. The coffee shop there is also a great place to stop, I haven’t been for a visit since covid hit but before we would regularly frequent here on our walks. The only downside may be that it can get very busy and if you time it wrong it can be hard to get parking (though you can normally get in at the central car park or at Antrim leisure centre), also make sure you check what’s on if you’re planning a visit.‬

‪Beautiful place for tea but the cardboard cups don't quite match the setting.‬
أغسطس 2021
‪Antrim Castle gardens is an excellent place to visit with extensive pathways and an abundance of wild birds active in the trees which surround the paths. An extended walk alongside the Sixmilewater river to the lough shore and Rea's wood beyond is also very pleasant and worthwhile.

The courtyard at Clotworthy House is a beautiful location for a cup of tea or coffee etc. The outdoor seating area has large parasols, which are equipped with overhead patio heaters for when the weather turns colder.
However it's rather disappointing to find that the hot drinks are still being served in extra small cardboard cups with food on paper plates and plastic cutlery, never mind the synthetic cream to accompany one's scone!‬

‪Beautiful with a long history‬
الأصدقاء • أغسطس 2021
‪We visited with grandkids who only wanted to run demonically around the grounds oblivious to Wu flu and its adverse impacts on life so we cheerfully obliged.

Antrim castle and gardens are fabulous to see. Historically the castle was built by Sir Hugh Clotworthy and his son, Sir John Clotworthy, between 1610 and 1662. The name Clotworthy derived from Clotworthy near Wembworthy, Devon, England.

As the surname suggests Sir Hugh and family weren't Irish natives, rather they gained land in Ireland in the Plantation of Ulster under the reign of James 1. Sir Hugh was a prominent politician during the Civil War. In 1660 he was created Baron Loughneugh (i.e. Lough Neagh) and Viscount Massereene in the Peerage of Ireland, with remainder to his son-in-law Sir John Skeffington, 4th Baronet, of Fisherwick, the husband of his daughter the Hon. Mary Clotworthy, and in default thereof to his heirs general.

Plantation is another term for colonisation and some half a million acres of land was handed over to settlers (planters) by the king. The settlers were mostly from Southern Scotland.

The colonists were required to be Protestant, English-speaking, and loyal to the king in short not Irish. Imagine today taking half a million acres of Alaska and gifting the land deeds to Canadians.

Anyway, back to today, with the effects of plantation still ever present and the Ulster Scots language on the playground fixtures the gardens feature a 17th century Anglo Dutch water garden, one of only three in the British Isles. They are over 410 years old with beautiful features such as the Large Parterre, Her Ladyship's Pleasure Garden and Yew Tree Pond.

Within the heart of the gardens is the unique Clotworthy House also created by Clotworthy descendants the Massereene family. So it’s not just a garden on the shore of Lough Neagh it’s living history and part of the political fabric of a complex, scarred divided statelet.

If you want an hour or two of serenity you'll find it here unless of course you happen to get close to our grandkids.‬

‪Leisurely Stroll.....‬
بمفردك • مايو 2021
‪Stopped here while in Antrim and just a short distance from centre. The walk about the grounds was interesting with plenty of points around to tell you of its history. There is a cafe for refreshments. A walk along a small river takes you down to the shores of Lough Neagh. There are a few mobile cafes, Ice cream vendors and seats to enjoy the countryside views. A worthwhile stop.‬
