Lovely ruined castle in a stunning spot. Audio tour and little guide book included in price which makes a nice change! Audio guide very helpful at making things come alive.

Dunluce Castle is an iconic cliff-top castle with an amazing mysticism about it not to be missed (or photographed!)

Unfortunately we were late getting there so didn't get to go in but just wandering about the outskirts was well worth the drive...I stood there and closed my eyes imagining what it was like hundreds of years ago...

Spent a great couple of hours exploring the ruins at Dunluce Castle over Easter. The setting/scenery is breathtaking looking out over the sea. There are audio guides available to guide you round the ruins which explain the history of the castle - the kids loved these. There is also a treasure hunt around the ruins which is great fun.

Best castle in NI. The history that came from the visitors centre set us off on a great adventure! The history of the families was thrilling, and tied a lot of my previous readings together. We both loved this castle and it's surroundings! And out weather was fabulous. I have since purchased a history book about Dunluce and was not... More

As my better half was a Mac Donnell before we married this was a visit to where her foots were. Its in a very beautiful location and the audio handsets give a very good account of how it worked in the times gone by

I was the first arrival and checked out the information office and rented the audio. It must have been an amazing home and the ocean view was incredible. Close to the Giant Causeway.

We visited with two other families, which meant 6 adults and 6 children all together. The kids loved having their own treasure hunt with their handset, which was great! It also was safe enough for them to explore - although it is good to keep an eye on them anyway!

This was one of my favorite things I did when I was in Ireland. The castle ruin is a well kept attraction with lots of history. How many castles have you been to that were built on the edge of a cliff wall? We took the self guided audio tour and found it to be very well done. We then... More
