A must see!

This is a really lovely castle and a "must see". A really beautiful area and very reasonable price instead of a tourist trap!!

Location - It's only a few miles from Portrush, so staying in town is very easy. Our GPS found it very easily and the signs along the road made it no trouble at all. It is on the edge of the ocean though and can be very windy! The scenery is fantastic and there are great pictures to be taken... More

You don't need to actually pay in to see the castle, you can look at it from the outside, and also walk around to see views of the beautiful coast.

Reasonable price for entry for a nice walk round a good looking ruined castle with still lots to see not sure if the walk down to the cave is worthwhile mind

Nice to visit, nothing spectacular but worth visiting if you are in and around the area. Wouldn't travel distance just to see

The castle shows its great age and is worth a visit should you be passing. It would disappoint should you travel there specifically.

I took some cousins from the US to see Dunluce Castle. We were just expecting a quick stop off at a small ruin on the side of the road but to our surprise we came on quite a large site with wonderful breathtaking views and great history. We spent a couple of very enjoyable hours at Dunluce and took some... More

This castle by the sea is picturesque from many angles. The free audio guide and signs detail the history of the site. A lovely highlight of our time on the Antrim coast. I love how you can explore it on your own and use your imagination.
