    We had a wonderful evening at the Glenarm Castle walled garden. The garden really does benefit from being close to the coast with milder weather giving a wide range of plants and vegetables grown in the grounds and even used in the tea rooms.
    the weather turned wet but that did not dampen our enthusiasm at all as there were umbrellas provided and we could still see the well planned and diverse range of plants on show
    Looking forward to our next visit
