This beautiful glen is 15 miles from Ballymena, turning left at the signpost for Cushendall. After travelling through Parkmore townland with the forest of Glenariff on your right, the vegetation clears to the expanse of the glen sweeping down to the Irish Sea and beyond towards the Mull of Kintyre. It can also be reached via the Coast Road from Larne, although it is better appreciated from an elevated vantage point.

The bottom of Genballyeamon lies between the crossroads where the Cushendall Road meets Gault’s Road, and Cushendall Bridge, meeting at the top of the glen at Parkmore townland. The southern boundary is Lurigethan and the western limits are the slopes of Trostan and the side of Tievebulliagh.
A survey of Glenballyeamon identified two clachans – Carnahagh (1) and Mullinaskeagh (2).
