This place is so exciting that I failed to understand how that castle was built in 15 centuries sad that there’s no Guide and the only information I could get was was what was written on the board

I've explored the North Coast and I visited Kinbane Castle after a recommendation as I had never heard or been to it before. Safe to say, it is now one of my favourite places and what a history it offers to Northern Ireland. It is off the beaten track but there are signs for Kinbane Head which you follow to the car park. From the car park there is a longish staircase which is beautiful going down as the view gets better and better. It is a little trickier going back to the car but Kinbane Castle is beautiful and a must visit

One of my favorite places, it is off the beaten track and does not have as many visitors as other attractions in the area. The views are so beautiful and it has a really lovely feeling it's a great place for a picnic, a really unique beautiful place.

Great view from car park, it’s a long staircase down and a hard slog back to the car park. But worth it

I've been to the North coast many times and never knew this place existed. Off the beaten track & situated between Ballycastle and Ballintoy, the castle ruins are accessed down a single track road to a decent sized car park with seasonal toilet facilities & informative board displays. From there, you have a steep descent of 140 (I counted!) steep stone steps, then a short walk to the promontory where the ruins sit. It's a brief climb up some steps to reach the remains of the castle. There is also a roofless fisherman's cottage nearby with spectacular views over the Atlantic and surrounding coastline. The cliff edges can be hazardous so probably not recommended for small children and also dogs are not permitted beyond the car park. Do bear in mind that the 140 steps are quite a challenge for the unfit, even more so going back up. Nevertheless Kinbane is well worth a visit for the scenery alone and although there isn't much of the castle left, it has a wonderful air of history in its rugged location.
