Hard to review a ruin but this ruin is nicely situated overlooking the sea and there are good views from the Causeway Road. Most of the castle has gone so it is a small ruin. For the young and energetic it is possible to climb...More

This is a beautiful drive that you can stop along the way. Don't expect a full castle, its only 2 walls but the scenic walk is breathtaking!

It is a nice area to walk around, but the castle is hardly a ruine! I would not recommend this one but skip it and drive to Dunluce castle instead.

This is a small ruin, but very picturesque. It is possible to hike down through the small valley and up to the stones (we saw the remains of a fence up there but it is almost all gone now). It only takes a few minutes...More

There's very little left of the castle, just the ruins of the gateway. It must have been quite a formidable place when it was a bastion of defence sitting up high on a rocky promontory.

We stopped here on a whim as we passed it on our drive. The view is pretty once you make the short climb to the top. If you have the time, I would recommend seeing.

We took the Rambler bus to Dunseverick and walked back to Bushmills. Really manageable trail and on a good day the views over the sea to Rathlin and beyond are amazing

If you are looking for a castle this is not the place. All that remains looks like a couple of cricket pins. However it is a great place to start an exquisite hour and a half hike to the Giant's Causeway. It is a stop...More
