After touring our fare share of castles in Ireland, we were just interested in touring the grounds. The area around the castle is beautiful with a quick walk down some stairs to the lower grounds. The wind was crazy but it was so worth the walk!

I don't know about others but if you like scenery, history and ruins this is the place to see. The fact that this castle still sits where it is, is a wonder. How amazing to walk were so many stood before. I'd recommend it take a look at the view from the different angles of the castle and imagine what... More

I may be tired of castles. Parking was tight. We had to wait for a spot to open up. It did not take long.

Even though we visited this site of castle ruins on a miserable, cold rainy day, the setting took our breath away. Just imagine what it must have been like to live in that grand place with those views!

This place must have been beyond awsome when it was lived in. I can't contemplate what it was like to stack those rocks on the cliffs while building it. This is a MUST visit and when you do I hope it's sunny. Our first visit it was sunny and clear but the castle closed 40 minutes after we arrived. Went... More

I am a photographer by avocation and Dunluce is a photographic paradise (assuming you like picturesque ruins). The history of the Castle is immensely interesting as well.

After leaving N. ireland as a child, I returned and lived there for two years as an adult...this is the castle I visited most during that time. A favorite place to take visitors from the U.S. Many great photo opportunities. Don't forget to take a trip with Portrush Sea Tours and see it from the ocean.

The castle ruins are so interesting & they have a great activity for kids too. Such beautiful views and the people are so friendly. Definitely worth the stop.
