The first day my sister-in-law and I went by the castle it was raining so we decided to go by the next day. We were fortunate because the weather was much better. It's a beautiful castle perched on the cliff's edge. The sight of the...More

Beautiful castle and is featured in Game of Thrones so everyone wants to see it. They charge you £5 to walk the castle....rather save your money for Garrick-a-rede rope bridge.

This castle is a great slice of history--well preserved, very well presented in terms of information provided. My wife and I visited twice--first on a very foggy day, which cast a wonderfully mysterious and evocative air over the place; and then on a sunny day,...More

Perched on the cliff edge between Bushmills and Portrush on the coast road is Dunluce Castle. The castle itself is a ruin but there is plenty of information on site to give you a real idea of what it was like in its heyday. There...More

Amazing seaside castle with breath taking landscapes. We chose this over Bushmills Distillery and so glad we did. The views from far away and unclose will blow your mind, a must stop!

Plan on stopping about 1/2 mile west of the ruins at a parking area for a great view of both the ruins and chalk cliffs. At the ruins, take the walk down the hill to the ocean cove for even more fantastic views.

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.
