The Park was originally part of the estate of Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon and was purchased by Larne Borough Council in 1957.

Many of the original features remain, including the walled garden, the ice house and the lime kilns. 

Carnfunnock has combined man-made attractions and entertainment with the splendour of its natural scenery in a way which is very special.


Carnfunnock Country Park is situated on the famous Antrim Coast Road (A2), 3.5 miles north of Larne town and Larne Harbour and just over 20 miles from Belfast.

Translink provides a regular bus service along the Coast Road (A2).

The nearest bus stop is located just outside the entrance to the Park.
