Although it's a photostop on the tour, what a hauntingly beautiful site. It must have been an incredible estate in its day, with the rolling fields to the cliffs.

We stopped her for pictures only on our recent CIE Tour of Ireland. It was so beautiful. Being right by the sea made it the perfect place for some wonderful pictures. I highly recommend going there. Next time I hope we can go inside too.

Absolutely loved visiting Dunluce Castle, the views are breathtaking. Too look at the castle ruins and imagine what life was like there hundreds of years ago. We enjoyed walking down to the "mermaids cave". The castle is a magical place, rich with history.

Nice castle to visit if you are touring the Giants Causway. It provides good insights into the history of the area and what it was once like. Spectacular views up and down the coast.

It was very cold and windy on the day we visited - it certainly would not have wifi at the castle as they are only ruins. Cannot comment on the tea rooms as did not visit. Would suggest you have a look at their website.

We spent about 30 minutes just reveling in the majesty and the history. Then we enjoyed the video inside. Take your time and breathe in the beauty.
I've recently saw an elopement editorial at the castle. Is this possible for a destination wedding? If so who may I contact for additional information? Thank you - Monica
