Best toasties. Great service. Don't be in a hurry. If you get a good day it's a fantastic setting. Small but quaint.

Took my nephew who was visiting from Australia around the North coast to see all the sights. Admission charge far to expensive with no concessions for pensioners,would certainly not visit again as its run by National Trust.

Cool ruins to walk around in. Not the most impressive castle in all of Ireland but worth a stop. It is cool to go around the bottom and see where the boats could come into dock during a calm low tide.

This is a nice place to visit, if you're nearby! Dunluce Castle is a large ruin with a spectacular view over the Atlantic ocean. The ruin is located on a cliff, over the Atlantic ocean, to get to the ruin you have to walk a hundred meters on grass and over a bridge, terrain is easy, even for elderly people.... More

1) FYI: there's a free app you can install before the visit that will provide you with historical background and 3D reconstructions of the buildings. 2) look for the outline of the galley carved on a stone in the gateway... it'not so easy! 3) if you have kids take them to the archaeological exhibit, where they can learn a lot...

The most interesting thing I found about the castle was it's history of changing hands between mercenary factions betraying each other. I also liked the archeology of the buried town

We enjoyed stopping at Dunluce Castle. Picturesque setting, with some significant ruins remaining. There were no crowds when we went, which made it enjoyable -- we drove by a day earlier, and lines were evident, so we postponed stopping one day. It would not take more than 45 minutes to see the entire site. Would recommend, however, for the more... More

What a site. What an incredible castle. Ruins a top a rugged cliff overlooking the Irish coast and ocean. We were all really impressed. Traveling with my parents this trip and they are mad keen Game of Thrones fan. This castle was used to some extend as Castle Greyjoy. They were thrilled we fit this into the drive for them.... More

Dunluce Castle has some of the most spectacular views. The ruins are amazing as well. I would say the views make it worth the money to go in and see it.
