We did all the North coast of Northern Ireland attractions. We'll remember this one. The castle ruin is simply breathtaking, cited on a shear cliff overlooking the Irish Sea. Our visit day was sunny, cloudless, and warm and the backdrop of the deep blue sea contrasting with the verdant green grass and ancient stonework is a memory I will long... More

Loved this castle. Setting is stunning. Well worth a visit. There is so much more than can be seen from the road.

We had a lovely time exploring these ruins. There's also a cute little shop next door that sells delicious looking pastries and cakes and some lovely souvenirs, but make sure to bring cash because they don't take debit/credit cards!

Although it's a photostop on the tour, what a hauntingly beautiful site. It must have been an incredible estate in its day, with the rolling fields to the cliffs.

This castle has great views and is worth a visit. Amazing that so much of the castle is intact from the 14th century. Interesting history.

The castle is in ruin, but there are still towers and bridges that you can go in and climb on. There is a great video you can watch about the history of the castle. We had a great time. The view of the cliffs, ocean, and castle are great and should not be missed.

We stopped her for pictures only on our recent CIE Tour of Ireland. It was so beautiful. Being right by the sea made it the perfect place for some wonderful pictures. I highly recommend going there. Next time I hope we can go inside too.

Absolutely loved visiting Dunluce Castle, the views are breathtaking. Too look at the castle ruins and imagine what life was like there hundreds of years ago. We enjoyed walking down to the "mermaids cave". The castle is a magical place, rich with history.
