Dunluce Castle is in ruins, and we didn't actually tour inside (although you can if you have more time). But we enjoyed walking the grounds a little and seeing the amazing views. It's in a very picturesque location, and the castle with the ocean and...More

There's a viewpoint from the road where the clifftop ruins look really impressive against the sky and sea. Great photo op!

The exterior of the Castle is impressive and you can get some great photos. We didn't pay to go inside as I wasn't sure what more you could expect. Overall I would recommend stopping by to see this, but equally important, to eat at the...More

The castle is a ruin but it is well worth the visit. It sits on a bluff with great views and the ruins themselves are very interesting to walk through. There is a gift shop, a visitor center and a café. We saw several castles...More

We came on a day of constant rain, but the views from the ruins, and of the ruins, were not affected. Take time to view the video on the excavation and preservation of Dunluce.

Very interesting. Brilliant views. Would definitely recommend a visit. Shame they have stopped doing the audio guide though as they always give that bit more info and brings it to life more.

It is an interesting visit. The castle is just the ruins but the explanation sheet is well done. It must have been a grand place to visit in its heyday.

We stopped by because it was close to Bushmills. Took some pictures from the outside without going into the castle itself.

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
