Group Visits

Photograph of children at Carnfunnock

Planning a group or school visit?

Carnfunnock Country Park is an ideal attraction for a group visit, whatever your age. There is a lot to see and do - whether you have an interest in the great outdoors, want to bring alive the national curriculum or just want a fun day out. We recommend that you allow between 2 - 5 hours for your visit and use this information booklet alongside our visitor map to ensure that your group gets the most out of their trip.

You can download Guidance Documents, Price Lists and a Group Booking Form at the bottom of this page. The Guidance Documents include details on Methods of Payments, Supervision, Parking etc.

Advance Booking

We would kindly ask that all groups, with 10 or more individuals, book in advance by completing a group booking form, in order to ensure facilities are open and suitably staffed. Please confirm one week prior to your visit and communicate the details outlined in this leaflet to your group members.

Information Provision

We are happy to post an information pack to group organisers. However if a substantial number of maps are required then these must be collected directly from our Visitor Centre or from Larne Visitor Information Centre. 

Educational material can also be downloaded directly from that section of this website. Interpretation panels incorporating Braille are located throughout the Park.

Supervision

(As per our Child Protection Policy) 

A minimum ratio of 1 adult to every 3-10 children (depending on age) is required for supervision. ALL children must be supervised at ALL times particularly in the Gift Shop, Cafe / Snack Stop, Family Fun Zone, Activity Centre area, Maze and Wildlife Garden.

Special Needs

Please let us know if your group has any special requirements and we will endeavour to tailor our service accordingly. Buildings and certain sections of the Park are fully wheelchair and pushchair accessible. A wheelchair and shopmobility scooter can be made available for use, subject to identification and conditions. We regret that due to the slope of the Park, upper sections are not suitable for wheelchairs and may prove difficult for some pushchairs, especially twin pushchairs.
