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

Brilliant for the kids and adults alike....views are amazing. It's one of the local tourist attractions that is not utilised.

This is a beautiful site with an unusual castle. The view is amazing and worth visiting for this alone.

This little castle should not be overlooked - it is a well-preserved ruin on the way to Newcastle. The views from the walls are really special, one can also climb all the way up to the top of the surviving tower and get a breathtaking panoramic view. It is peaceful and very quiet up there, well worth taking a look.
