Our trip to N Ireland has been planned for some time, and we thought Dunluce could be the highlight of the trip. It really is a fascinating place, with a massive history. It was an overcast day when we visited , which was ideal to...More

The wonderful cliff edge location and the history make this ruined castle another essential visit and make this well worth the modest admission charge. (By the way, English Heritage cards are not valid here). The car park is very small and parking can be difficult,...More

It was just after closing when we went by here after leaving Giant's Causeway. You can get some nice photographs even if you're on the other side of the wall. Lovely ruins. The parking lot is probably pretty full during summer.

I'd been here last summer, on that occasion I followed a review on Trip Advisor to go in to through the main gate, turn right and walk down the steps. We arrived early that summer day (2017) and the castle gates were closed. On returning...More

This was first on my list of places to visit and it didn't disappoint. The views here alone are worth the trip and price of admission. Just beautiful and I like that they provide a lot of information on the history and current archaeological finds.

We visited on our 3rd day in Ireland. Due to it turning cold and very windy & the castle just a shell (no indoors), we opted not to go in. But we took some awesome pictures of this amazing castle built right on the edge...More

If a history buff, this is definitely worth checking out. Lovely and well preserved ruins and absolutely gorgeous coastal views. We had a great visit!

We love exploring castle ruins-- we much prefer them over perfectly intact and decorated castles. Dunluce was probably our favorite we have ever explored. Not only is it on this amazing cliff, but the castle is big and you can wander around. It was not...More

Situated a short 5 - 10 minute drive from the Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle provides breathtaking scenery. The castle itself was once home to a family in the 1100s before a storm caused the kitchens to fall into the sea and killing 9 people in...More

Perfect spot to explore and take photos. We were here on a sunny Spring day making it just perfect! We did not do the tour so 30-45 min was all we needed. Don’t miss it!

It was very cold and windy on the day we visited - it certainly would not have wifi at the castle as they are only ruins. Cannot comment on the tea rooms as did not visit. Would suggest you have a look at their website.
