This is a gorgeous location and nice place for some excellent photos. The castle is fairly accessible even when it is after hours (our situation). We were still able to walk around most of the grounds and take some excellent pictures of the castle and coastline.

Dunluce is a very interesting castle ruin that is fun to walk around, but I do feel that the admission price is too steep for what is there. Though I understand it is expensive to reconstruct old buildings. What I want to write about is a start up business there as named above. I was compelled to check out a... More

This is history. If you visit Ireland for castles and history this is the place. The ruins are beautiful with excellent views. A must see in Northern Ireland.

Title says it all. It's a real privilege to walk around the ruins of this castle and get a feel for what life was like four hundred years ago. Scenery is breathtaking.

We made a planned stop here in Saturday while driving up the Antrim coast. I had been here many times as a child and had lovely memories of the place. While I understand that it cost money for the upkeep of these places, £5 entry is a little steep. Seemed to be a lot of building works going on and... More

This castle is well worth a visit. The visitors centre is very informative and the signage around the site very good. Very dramatic setting.

Be sure to stop by this awesome site. The castle itself is small and easily visited in an hour or less, but what makes it so cool are two things, one, it's right on the cliff's edge and provides a stunning backdrop to the wild atlantic, and two, it is steeped in great history. Though it closed down as a... More

Dunluce is iconic along the coastline here-there are stunning views out along the coast and has beautiful sea views. Parking can be a little hectic here but it is always nice for a leisurely visit
