Lovely park suitable for everyone, lovely walks with great coastal views, cafe good although on the pricey side, and loads for the kids to do. Great free play park, and separate play area with crazy golf, mini train etc, which to be fair is in need of an upgrade, lots of broken toys/figures along the way. But hey the kids... More

Think Carnfunnock is the best park in Northern Ireland both for a family day out and a camping holiday, all the facilities are well managed very clean and well maintained. Management and Staff so helpful and friendly. Love the coffee shop good food and service. Love all the events organised at Easter, Halloween etc.

Had a nice visit here on Easter Monday. The place was buzzing but handled the big numbers well and we never felt uncomfortable. Carnfunnock is that most wonderful of things a moderately priced family day out. We paid four pounds for parking and nine pounds for mini golf. After that the rest was free. Not bad at all. The walks... More

Best campsite on our 2 week tour of NI. Quiet site with only 26 pitches for caravans and campers. Placed in the centre of the park, with access to maze, huge playground, cycle/walk route. Very safe for kids and great location for day trip to Belfast

I parked across the road. On the path up the hill into the site you immediately notice that the birds are tamer than usual. They’re more used to people on foot, and don’t fly away. Great views of the ocean, some grand mature trees, an odd garden of sundials, and trails you can walk around. Good for a day out.... More
