“Amazing Landscape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

Its a must visit on a bright sunny day, hardly 10 min walk from main gate and you find yourself surrounded by lush green pastures, some ancient structures and sea in the backdrop, the beauty of this place cannot be described.

It is definitely one of the must visits during the Norther Ireland tour, you will end up taking loads of photographs enough to bind in an album of its own :)

“Gorgeous scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

Called in here whilst doing a driving tour of the northern coast. Spectacular scenery in this area. The temple is well signposted and has a decent car park although make sure you stop as you go in to get your ticket or show your card - I didn't and the poor lad had to run down to the car park! The temple is a little walk from the car park but the views are incredible.

“we stood inside and view was amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

I am not sure if its normally open but the view out of one of the windows to the sea was amazing. A fair walk from carpark but pleasant views.

“Bank holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Went over on a wet Monday bank holiday. My kids are aged from 7 to 13 and they loved it charged around and explored the ruins and then went to the walled garden and the Dovecote, can honestly say even on a wet day it was well worth a visit and we will definitely go back on a dry day with a picnic .

“My favourite place in Northern Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

I've been visiting this place from before I could write. It's absolutely beautiful. The views are breathtaking and the setting is very romantic. If it's open, inside the temple allows for even more impressive views of downhill beach, and the fierce Atlantic Ocean. The castle ruins is a 'must see' too. I could literally spend hours getting lost in how beautiful this place is. A perfect location for a proposal or wedding.
