Even though it was abandoned in the late 1600’s it was amazing how much of this castle remains, especially with it’s ocean-side, cliff-top setting. It has easy access and an easy-to-read map describing each area. A lot of archeological work has been done on the...More

My husband and I came to Ireland in 2006 but ran out of time before coming to Dunluce, so it was on my list. (That trip we were at a castle or cathedral every day so I may also have been sick of them... this...More

There is a lot to see from the inside, unfortunately the NI authorities run their heritage separately from the rest of the UK so everyone pays on entry. The path to the caves under the castle looks to have been 'under repair' for some time...More

We just stopped on the roadside overlooking these ruins and thought that was about as much as you needed to see. We didn’t enter the ruins but they are in a great location for a quick look.

An amazing ruin of a castle, with stunning views of the coast. Great value for money & good thing to look out for. Galleon on the left of steps, lightly carved into stone in wall. A must see in the area. But wrap up as...More

Arrived on a rainy morning but that didn’t dampen our spirits. £3 entry fee, also it doesn’t open until 10am. Pop into the visitors centre first and there is a very informative video about the site which makes things a lot clearer as you walk...More

Dog not allowed although outside. Busy place to go around even in June. Difficult approach from the road.

This castle is a must visit. You can park only 30 metres from it - and although it costs 8 euro a person it is well worth it. There is a small visitor center that describes what existed there 600 years ago and how the...More

Lovely well kept ruin of a beautiful (once) castle. Quite big actually. Entrance fee - a bit high to my opinion

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
