All reviews hidden gem car park steep steps kinbane head well worth the effort the cliff narrow lane be careful certain level by accident small ruin signal point off the beaten path around the corner beautiful ruin views are absolutely stunning mobility issues
We visited Kinbane Castle and when we got there views were superb, but there are hundreds of steps down the side of a steep descent to get there and if you thought going down was exhausting just wait until you have to go up the...More
Kinbane Castle ruins was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. The castle was built in the 1500s on a small peninsula. It is a bit of a climb down and back, but totally worth it. Beautiful vistas, crashing surf and fantastic rocky...More

We hadn’t even heard of Kinbane until recently despite spending a lot of time on the North Coast all my life so once the rain this week subsided off we went.
Kinbane is located on the road from Ballycastle to Ballintoy and is accessed down...More

I was there about a month ago, it looked to me like there was always access. just a decent path with no locked gates and no staff- be prepared for lots and lots of steps. The American lady who rated the castle terrible may not have got past the public loos - these look like they are always closed.
