This is a bit off the beaten track but get there! Breathtaking cliffside ruins with views to match. Much of structure is original...incredible history. Good little discovery centre and a few artifacts. Well worth a visit.

Dunluce Castle is about a 20 minute drive from Coleraine but there is a bus service from Coleraine bus number 402 or 402a. This was well worth the effort for two reasons 1 the site itself was really good with lots of information on notice...More

Worth the money to walk through the castle ruins, right along the cliffs and very interesting info posted along with historical and archeological info! Great time, took about an hour to see everything then got some amazing scones right across the parking area after

We lucked out by coming on a heritage day so entry was free. Teenagers reverted to toddlers playing hide and seek and rolling down the hill. Picnicked on the grass and it was lovely

A stunning backdrop to these castle ruins. Pay a modest admission fee and walk around the grounds. Take your camera!

What a beautiful historical place. Not much to it. But, use your imagination. Think of GOT. The views of every angle is amazing!!

The castles looks quite nice and was used in the GOT. Couldn't go close to the castle as our tour route only let us see the castle from a distance.

It doesn't take long, but is definitely worth seeing. It's a small castle, but each "room" has an information board. If you want to read all of these and go through each section, plus stop to admire views and take... More
