Beautiful part of Antrim coast
Sep 2021 • Couples
On a bus tour from cruise ship docked in Belfast. This area of the coast is spectacular. Close to giants causeway.
Loved our guide who was so knowledgeable and telling us the history

Dunluce Castle staff go above and beyond!
Sep 2021
The Castle is lovely, mystical, haunting. The views are fabulous. The staff is even better! my daughter left her mobile phone in the bathroom and did not realize it until we were 6 hours away in Killarney.

We called, and the staff mailed the phone to us. I want to give a special thanks to Ciaran Mclarnon and Hazel Porter. they went out of their way to help us, and made a huge difference in the quality of our vacation.

Best castle ever - returned lost phone!
Sep 2021 • Friends
Lovingly well kept castle with lots of information about its history and what it would have looked like and been used for back in the day. Unfortunately I left my phone in the bathroom and didnt realize until we were back in Dublin! I called to see if anyone found it, and they were able to mail my phone back to me!! I'm so grateful to the staff at Dunluce, they saved my phone, license and credit card, in addition to the beautiful photos I took at the castle ❤️

Ruined castle!!
Sep 2021 • Couples
This is a ruined castle - not sure I can add much more! Location and views good, information plaques gave some insight (although these could probably be added to). Probably a 45 min visit is about right.

A superb historical gem
Aug 2021
The castle is located on a headland approached over a wooden bridge. What was a surprise was to discover that this was in fact the edge of the village of Dunluce and not just a castle by itself. The village has disappeared in the last 500yrs. Now a ruin but kept in good order despite its fragile position on crumbling cliff. Plenty of well thought-out info boards around the site. Public loos for ticketholders. Small gift shop and helpful staff though out the site.

Family explores ancestral roots at Dunluce Castle
Jul 2021
Visiting Dunluce Castle is a unique experience and not to be missed when driving Northern Ireland's wild Atlantic coast. It has centuries of history full of knights, ladies, and battles along with stunning views, hidden passageways, and its own flower of Dunluce, the meadow cranesbill. Let Graeme and his colleagues bring the ancient rock ruins to life with their tales of life, love, and loss at this beautiful place. Thanks to all who made our family visit so very special.

I recommend the guided tour with Cormac
Jul 2021 • Friends
We had a great visit here on a beautiful day. Cormac the guide was excellent, he told stories about the castle and really made the visit worthwhile. I highly recommend paying for the visit and seeing the castle from the inside. Even the graffiti through the ages was amazing to see.

Stunning views!
Aug 2021 • Couples
By the time we got there the actual castle itself was closed (totally our fault, whoops). The views were incredible and even though we couldn’t get closer the castle itself was stunning. It was raining so we sat in the car for a bit, researching the castle’s history. I can imagine actually visiting the castle will be great, so hopefully next time we are able to!

One of top in Portrush

Good experience with family and friends. One of the best place to go in Portrush. The view from the castle is fantastic. Entry fee is bit higher than expected.
