It may be worth checking out Watertop Farm's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Watertop Farm before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.

"are we there yet?"
Watertop is accessed from the main A2 between Ballycastle and Cushendall approx 6 miles East of Ballycastle. Directly opposite Ballypatrick forest you will find our entrance. We are approx. 45 minutes from the port of Larne and approx. 50 minutes from the international airport and 60 minutes from Belfast.
...got any top tips?
Although we do have a new indoor play area Watertop is very much about the outdoors and doing things, so dress for the weather! We are buggy friendly and as most of our activities are near the farm yard, the elderly or less mobile don’t have too far to walk. Watertop is a working hill farm so full acces for disabled is not possible.
