Absolutely loved visiting Dunluce Castle, the views are breathtaking. Too look at the castle ruins and imagine what life was like there hundreds of years ago. We enjoyed walking down to the "mermaids cave". The castle is a magical place, rich with history.

Fun stop for amazing views and photos along the Antrim Coast of Ireland! Very close to Giants Causeway. Very interesting history of the area as well as the castle!

We visited just as a group arrived and decided not to take the tour - I was a little disappointed at the start but have to say I enjoyed the walk down the steps to the lookout and the cave. Again good walking shoes are required and be perpared for uneveness under foot. Worth the effort!

Turning east from the B62, we made our first stop on the Causeway Coast at Dunluce Castle, which had suffered over the centuries for its spectacular clifftop location by losing parts of itself into the sea. The grey stone walls stood roofless and melancholy, evocative of the island’s troubled history as much as it was representative of its beauty. There... More

Nice castle to visit if you are touring the Giants Causway. It provides good insights into the history of the area and what it was once like. Spectacular views up and down the coast.

This was my 2nd visit to this location in 5 years and I enjoyed every minute of it. The fantastic weather this time around made all the difference and I took full advantage of every photo opportunity. I love the Antrim Coast and a visit to Dunluce Castle is a must see.

Friday the 28th April having visited Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and then the Giants Causeway, the next stop along the Causeway Coastal Route was Dunluce Castle. It is situated about 4 and a half miles from the Causeway and about 3 miles east of Portrush. Surrounded by 100-foot cliffs on all sides, the Castle is situated in a dramatic location on... More
