This is always one of my favourite spots to visit. It's free, and the scenes across the valley to the ocean and the Mournes is spectacular. I've never seen it really busy, even in mid summer. Nothing commercial - no gift shops - an added bonus.

The castle is a bit of a fixer upper but you can climb to the top and there are great views of the bay. No entrance fee and car parking, worth a look.

Well this for a start. Memories of school outings;now returning with my own children to find this place now stars in G.O.T. Impressive for all that perched high above Dundrum bay with great views. I echo previous comments about climbing frames but would add the caveat ' not for the faint hearted' the main spiral staircase is quite hair raising!

Climbing to the top of this castle gives the most amazing views of the Mourne mountains and Dundrum Bay. The castle offers scope for children to explore and is atmospheric and a real delight.

A must see for the Game Of Thrones fans. The guy at the gate played in some episodes of GOT, is really friendly and has a unbelievable collection of weapons arms in his small cabin :)

Visited this venue with our grandchildren. They love climbing up around the castle and generally running around. Venue for Game of Thrones which had a re-enacactment on the day we visited. Spectacular sea views and backdrop of The Mountains of Mourne. Very accessible and well worth a visit

Like most of Northern Ireland's tourist attractions, Dundrum Castle is inadequately signposted. It is hidden by trees from the main street below, and there is no brown tourist road sign on Main Street. There are two black metal ones with the name on in white, but at a glance they look like pub signs. It was sheer luck we spotted... More
