Cycled from Bushmills to Dunluce with my kids on the trailer behind the bike. Staff really helpful and allowed me to park bike and kiddy trailer outside shop so it was safe. Kids loved the castle and were looking for princesses and Scooby doo! Fantastic views up the coast line from this vantage point.

Enjoyed castle, great situation on cliffs. Would be good for kids. We also liked cafe at top by entrance.

Pretty well preserved castle ruins. Particularly loved the nearby cliffs, arches, caves, etc. We were imagining what it would be like to live here when this castle was operational in it's full potential. I think it would have been magical.

Probably the best value for the experience during our trip to N. Ireland. Views were stunning. Info Booklet was most helpful. Audio tour was okay, but could be much improved. Younger children had a scavenger hunt audio tour which kept the busy. When you think of castles in your mind, stories, and movies...this is it. With a step cliffs, steep walls, underground caves for boats to dock. Awesome. Highly Recommend!

Also we had a great good value lunch across the street at the "Wee Cottage" Great staff, generous portions, and good value.

It had just started raining when we visited the castle, but the rain added to the atmosphere of the ruined buildings. It costs £5 to go in, but well worth it. There is a choice of audio guide or good old fashioned paper booklet - good news for those that don't like wandering around with appliance held to ear. In June there are wildflowers growing all around making the many views from the castle especially picturesque. Visited as a couple but think children also would enjoy visiting this attraction as long as not too long spent there.
