Dunluce Castle offers a fairly typical castle ruin experience, but on a small scale. The remains are neither very impressive nor expansive. See it if you're already there, but not worth s detour of you're not.

We had seen pictures of Dunluce and wanted to include it on our driving tour of Northern Ireland. However, we didn't expect what a wonderful job they had done with the location. Archaeologists and historians have teamed together and created a wonderful learning opportunity. If you come for the view, like we did, make sure to experience the outbuildings and... More

Dunluce Castle is one of my favourite places to visit when coming to Ireland. The entry fee was 5 pounds today and despite the 40mph winds we still enjoyed it.

Visited here on a sunny afternoon, the views are amazing. Great history behind the castle and photos are a plenty. Only £5 to get in and here is a small indoor historical site, video room and toilets. Go, you won,t be disappointed.

This old remains of a castle have a romantic aura that attracts visitors in the area. To be seen and visited at least from the outside which is free

This is an amazing ruin to visit - I would definitely be careful with bringing young children, and it could be a challenge to access the whole site if you have physical limitations. The views, however, are beautiful, and it was not too crowded.

Incredible vista when you first see Dunluce Castle jutting out into the sea (apparently) and well worth a stop for a photo opportunity and a brief visit inside.

We have driven past Dunluce Castle lots of times recently and last week we decided to actually go in and have a look around. It costs £5 to get in but is worth the money. Once inside you can relive the history of the castle and the settlement that used to be there. It is very photogenic, sitting on the... More

We didn't actually go in the castle we went around it and down the steps and the views were amazing. Even though the weather was awful it made the experience even better with the waves hitting the rocks and the wind nearly knocking us off the steps.
