Such a stunning location, steeped in history, it's a bit-timo-be missed attraction. Great cottage cafe in Carpark in summer season with homemade soup, sandwiches and a fire all the time.

The castle is great to visit, tho it is too bad they did away with the audio self-guided tour (this was our second visit). Still, the posted signs help to explain the site and what's being viewed. The grounds are very nice and views stunning. Visitors can hike almost anywhere around mindful of the landscape and loose masonry) and there... More

Not to be missed, this is an amazing castle. There is an interesting history display on show as you pay, before you go into the castle, which is worth a visit. Good parking and very reasonably priced. Cave at the bottom of the castle, but beware there are a lot of steps both going and coming, if you don't want... More

We drove by Dunlcue Castle after visiting the Giant's Causeway. He pulled off & decided to just walk around the castle instead of in it since the price to go inside was pretty steep. It was a fun place to stop, explore & take some photos.

What a sight! One can only wonder the stories those walls witnessed (and the craziness when the kitchen fell in the ocean!!!). Sadly you can only contemplate it all from afar.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Dunluce Castle. The ruins are much more extensive than we had thought. There are information boards throughout and you get a map with your admission charge. Some of the views are spectacular! The little museum about the archaeological excavation is interesting and should also be included on your visit. Most definitely worth a visit!

Never fails to impress. Stunning ruin clinging to cliff face. Entry £5 per adult but worth it. Like a movie location

My girlfriend and I arrived at Dunluce Castle at what turned out to be 3:30pm last Saturday. The castle is open until 4pm, and we were walking down the lane when a worker started to lock the gates. He was on his phone at the time, and I said "Are you closed?" to which he raised his finger, instructing me... More
