The castle is a very interesting historical site but the views are even better. This is a beautiful area.

Outstanding venue! Well- kept and informative displays. Take a walk down to the cave below and take pictures shooting up to the castle... Turned out great!

This was our second trip to Ireland, and in the first, we concentrated our time within the Republic of Ireland and more toward the south and west of the country. So, when we began to plan a return trip, I knew more than anything, I wanted to see the North Coast. As I researched, I read the story of Dunluce... More

Had a great 3 hours here with the family. Stunning views and also amazing preservation of the site. Would highly recommend you stop by when passing. Entrance price seems a little on the high side at first but after visiting we agreed it was value for money.

I've actually never been inside the visitor centre but love the castle ruins. It's very dramatic and picturesque- right on the cliffs and perfect at sunset!

Have stopped off here twice and never went into the castle . But still was worth the stop off for the scenery alone and a quick walk around .

Gorgeous - well worth the time to check it out especially if you enjoy photography. The views really are amazing and we also enjoyed the surrounding fields and the livestock!

This was a fun little stop over on our causeway weekend, interesting orientation video to start and whilst the audio tour was a little limited (seems like sections had been removed over time as there were extra numbers on site with no corresponding commentary) the stories told were interesting. Do not though expect something grand and ostentatious, more of a... More

The 5 Star rating is for the Castle itself but I am disappointed that Dunluce seems to be operating with 'office' based staff. I remember when I last visited with relatives, staff were able to leave the office and provide guided tours which brought the place alive. It hasn't lost its magical air but it certainly has lost that essential... More
