My hubby, two sons and I had a lovely visit here in August 2018, it was well worth the £15 to get in and walk around, really amazing to see the size of the place and the way it was built and the artists impressions...More

This is one of the most dramatic and romantic ruined castles in the world. Visit it if you are in Northern Ireland. What more needs to be said?

Although the postcard view is from the outside, it's definitely worth exploring the inside as well. Interesting history, and plenty of gorgeous views of the coastline to be had. A definite must visit in the area.

Absolutely spectacular location. A must-see. The tour is well worth it...the inside is just as impressive as the outside. Great information points really show you what life was like. Highly recommended this for a proper visit not just a photo op from the road.

Really nice went later in the day when it wasn’t so busy. Great views and photo opportunities if that’s your thing. Lots to see and a good amount of information. Not a full day out place but great on the way back from somewhere.

It doesn't take long, but is definitely worth seeing. It's a small castle, but each "room" has an information board. If you want to read all of these and go through each section, plus stop to admire views and take... More

Did you ever get an answer on who could do the ceremony? I know there is a £30 fee to get pictures done at Dunluce Castle. I'm in the same situation. Getting legally married elsewhere, but would like to have a (non legal... More
