Here In July2023. The one shop is well stocked with all manner of supplies. Not a supermarket, but great supplies for most yachts. While the town looks empty of commerce, go to the castle where there's tea rooms, takeaways, pizza house, shops galore, museums, walled gardens, walks. Enough to occupy any crew waiting for Clement weather, and feed you too.they we're setting up for a music festival later this month while we were there, looks like that will be huge.

Update Early Summer 2021
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 25th Jun 2021
I reviewed these notes in June 2021. Much is the same here though the price has gone up a wee bit. They have added a new 120 metres of pontoon to the old layout and our harbour plan in the text gives a rough outline of the new layout.

Update Spring 2019
Written by Don Thomson 3 | 10th May 2019
These notes were reviewed in May 2019. There's not much change here - the marina remains the main attraction whilst, outside, the village is boarded up. The HM is still very obliging and you will find him very helpful.
UPDATE Autumn 2018

We have had a report that there is a new development plan afoot here and that one of the casualties may be the free launderette. Mind you that report was from a competing marina!

I can confirm that the Chinese Takeaway (Carnlough) does deliver to the Coast Road Inn in Glenarm,, and that the Inn provides crockery and cutlery. We had a very enjoyable meal at the Inn last evening.

Reasonable Marina & facilities

Visited in August 2011. The staff were very friendly & helpful. There was water available on all pontoons and electricity on at least some of them. I believe fuel was available although we didn't need any so I am not completely certain. Showers & toilets were very clean. The approach was well marked and access easy. However, I would not wish to enter in strong N-NE winds. There are a couple of pubs in the village but no restaurant. We had a rather forgettable meal in the Londonderry Arms hotel in nearby Carnlough.
Glenarm is a good passage stopover for anyone travelling between N. Ireland and ports North of the Mull of Kintyre. I would visit again if heading up the West Coast of Scotland because of the tide advantages it offers as a departure point. However, as a stopover point on a North coast of Ireland cruise I would definitely make the effort to get to Ballycastle or Rathlin. I like a decent meal in the evening and it is not on offer here.
