“Nice big ruin on the edge of a cliff.”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

As part of a drive along the causeway road, this is well worth the stop.
It's basically a big ruin right on the edge of the cliff. You can pay in but we had as much fun exploring under and around the castle.

“A slice of history”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Great little place, free parking, and only have to pay if you want to go INSIDE the castle, and that's fair. Enjoyed our visit, impressed by the site and particularly by the sea cave underneath.

“Antrim's Castle”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

The north Antrim coast road is one of the best scenic trips you could wish for; from Portstewart/Portrush round to Ballycastle and beyond to the Glens. On route you will pass the remains of Dunluce Castle well worth the stop and visit showing real history of the area those hundreds of years ago. Up the road try the Carrickfergus Rope Bridge if you dare!!!!!!

“A Peek into another world”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

This structure remains remarkably intact, and the visitor map does well to explain what each space was used for so you can truly recreate what it would have been like to live or visit the castle in is heyday. Beautiful photo opportunities.

“Super Neat”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit to the castle. The staff was very pleasant at the counter, the admission fee was pretty reasonable, and the ruins were very kul! I don't have much else to say except that it is a great idea to stop if you are on the north coast.
