So worn out from our exciting Giant's Causeway and Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge visits, with the sun going low in the sky and our stomachs growling we headed toward food. The sky and views spectacular on Coastal Causeway Rd. Could we fit in Dunluce Castle. Where...More

We didn't have time to take the tour or walk to the castle, so instead we parked at Magheracross Car Park nearby. At the car park, it you walk to the fence -- as far as you can go towards the water and towards the...More

This castle is haunting and daunting to think people built this to have a part fall into the sea. Such a beautiful photo opportunity in ever corner of the facility. I took a number of pictures and very easily could have taken many more. Early...More

The Dunluce castle was absolutely worth the visit. It is an unbelievable view, and it gives me a surreal feeling being there and learning about the past of the castle. I was a little disappointed because the path down alongside the castle to the beach...More

As a big fan of C.S. Lewis, I thoroughly enjoyed standing on the castle grounds that are said to be the inspiration for Narnia's Cair Paravel. The views of the ocean were breathtaking.

We visited a few castles during our week trip in Ireland. This one was by far the group favorite. There is something really cool about walking around the grounds, imagining life filling the walls years ago and taking in the breathtaking views. Of course, the...More

This is a spectacular castle built on the edge of a cliff near the sea. It is quite well preserved and there are amazing views from many angles. Definitely worth a visit.

It doesn't take long, but is definitely worth seeing. It's a small castle, but each "room" has an information board. If you want to read all of these and go through each section, plus stop to admire views and take... More
