Glenarm Visitor Information Centre, is a community initiative operated by Glenarm Buildings Preservation Trust since 2015 with objectives;
(i) to promote tourism in Glenarm Village and it’s hinterlands
(ii) to create employment in the provision of Visitor Information
(iii) to offer a placement for a student of Tourism at 2nd or 3rd level education
(iv) to provide opportunities for Volunteering.
(v) to service Visitors travelling along the Causeway Coastal Route and Yachts people arriving in Glenarm marina.
The Visitor Information Centre moved to offices in the Harbour Masters Building overlooking Glenarm Marina in March 2022. They identify new expectations by visitors following the Covid Pandemic experiences of the past 2 years.
Generally there are more ‘outdoors’ visitors, ranging from increased yachts and boating people in the enlarged Marina, to Motor Home travellers who ‘weekend’ at the Coast and Sunday strollers (on other days too ) who enjoy a leisurely walk, on the level, taking in the Sea air, Nature, the Environment and all things quaint in a ‘relaxed’ heritage village.
At Glenarm Visitor centre we are well resourced to interest, inform and guide all of the visitors who stop off.
