A lovely castle located on the scenic north Antrim coast unfortunately it's not very well sign posted and you can drive past it quite easily. Well worth a visit when your driving round the coast.

Took my little girl here for a day out. Drove by this place so many times and never once visited it so took the plunge and went. Was amazing...great to actually have a piece of history like this more or less on your doorstep. Not somewhere i would visit again but i really enjoyed it and found it really interesting.

By the time we made it to Dunluce, it was too dark to see. They were not open yet when we had to leave the following morning, but we were still able to walk right up to the castle to take some great pictures! Out of all the castles we viewed on our Ireland/N.Ireland trip, this one definitely made the... More

We toured the ruins of this castle at mid day, on a sunny day and the views of the ruins from different vantage points was amazing. You can walk around the outside of the castle area and down many steps to view the castle from below. That walk is free. Inside the castle grounds, you can go back in time... More

We visited the Dunluce Castle on our way to Giants Causeway. The views of the Castle with the ocean is gorgeous. The Castle itself is interesting to tour. Overall, we are glad that we stopped to visit the Dunluce Castle and would recommend it.

I absolutely loved Dunluce Castle. Its location at the edge of the sea, the moody coastline, the brooding ruins. I loved that we could walk all over the site, and the signage that explained what once stood in each place, and a drawing of what it would have looked like at the time. A beautiful place, one I will definitely... More

"The pillar towers of Ireland, how wondrously they stand By the lakes and rushing rivers through the valleys of our land; In mystic file, through the isle, they lift their heads sublime, These gray old pillar temples, these conquerors of time..." From any angle, Dunluce Castle is magnificent to behold visually, but after you have absorbed this historic monument to... More

Was really beautiful and well reserved! We went on a Sunday evening when we thought it may be busy but was very quite which gave us loads of time to take the beautiful surrounding in, defiantly would highly recommend visiting here!

Dunluce castle is well worth a visit and is steeped in History. The entrance fee is very reasonable but parking can sometimes be a problem. There is a cafe adjacent but I would give this place a miss as it is expensive and not up to standard.

This is a beautiful castle. It's great for pictures and the views are so great. We didn't pay to go in we just walked around outside but it was beautiful and I would recommend checking it out if you are in the area.
