Our first tourist stop having arrived in Dublin and drove to Portrush to start our Irish Road Trip! Lots of history here, and well presented at this castle. Just the ticket for our first stop as we learned a lot about the area, the castle, etc. The grounds are well maintained and obviously care taken to keep the area inviting.... More

Stunning views and a nice bit of history. For the kids there's a treasure hunt that keeps them busy. I think it was about a half hour visit to do everything so it can be a quick stop when in the area. Not much of a gift shop.

Brilliant place to visit, right on the beautiful North Coast. Convenient to Portballintrae, Bushmills and Portrush. Tea Rooms and parking available. Plenty of beautiful places to visit near and around. Royal Portrush Gold Club a few miles down the road our championship course. This area really worth a visit. Live near Dunluce Castle.

Very good place to visit for pictures. We visited with our 2 year old and he loved it running about the place through all the ruins. No guided tour unless arranged and paid for. So we just ambled along ourselves. Great for pictures of the castle ruins and the surrounding scenery.

Breath taking views and my favourite scene on the North Coast. Great place to visit with the family especially on the Historical days that they organise during the summer. Well worth a visit for the face painting, craft, music, entertainers and storytellers and set in the beautiful Dunluce castle on the splendid North Coast
