There's nothing special about the ruins of Dunluce Castle. However, the location of the castle, on the edge of a rocky outcrop, is wonderful, and the views from there are spectacular.

I've never seen a single episode of game of thrones and still felt that this castle would be perfect for a movie. It's so beautiful: these medieval ruins built on a cliff over the ocean. All this surrounded by typical Irish green valleys. Stunning.

We looked at a number of castles on our two week trip to Ireland. This was by far our favorite. It is in such an impressive location. The information center and gift shop are tiny but I guess they don't really need to be large....More

Although small, the presentation of the buildings was excellent. Lots of printed information on boards and a very informative pamphlet. Plus the entire place was neat and clean. Enjoyed an hour here.

We enjoyed touring the Dunluce castle site. The ruins are well preserved and the history is explained in the adjoining buildings and by the the local staff.

A good visit- very stunning as on a cliff edge, I am not usually one for historic ruins but enjoyed looking round and the leaflets and signs tell you lots of extra information.

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.

We spent about 30 minutes just reveling in the majesty and the history. Then we enjoyed the video inside. Take your time and breathe in the beauty.
I've recently saw an elopement editorial at the castle. Is this possible for a destination wedding? If so who may I contact for additional information? Thank you - Monica
