Beautiful view. However we got here too late to actually gain entrance. We took all of our photos from outside and up the hill a litte from the castle. Will have to come back someday :-}.

Views from the castle are fantastic, lots of information on the castle and surounding area. It rained the whole morning we were there however, it was an experience well worth getting wet for.

Another great location on the Causeway photo tour. Great place to photograph by day or night. If you want to go into a field to photo ask the farmer, nice guy. Amazing architecture on the old castle, Will visit again

Attractions in the UK are expensive. So say locals. However, I justify the cost by the future value of keeping these historical or environmental places for all to enjoy through restoration or protective projects. While the cost of admission here is lower than others in...More
