Brilliant interpretation really gives you a sense of how busy this castle would have been in medieval times. My 10 and 12 year old loved exploring the 'Castle Walk' and walls which allow access to the most stunning views.
Have seen this castle on numerous visits to Dundrum and Murlough but only got around to exploring it recently.
The panoramic view of the two bays and the inlet is absolutely breathtaking.
The castle itself is one of the largest ruins I’ve visited and I...More
Wasn’t too sure if it would be worth the time to stop off at this castle because the view from the road suggests there isn’t really much to see!
Took the risk and was glad we had - there is free parking and no entrance...More
A must for landscape photographers. The castle provides a great vantage point to view the Mourne Mountains and Dundrum Bay. Early morning provides great low light sun highlighting the shadows on the valleys and Corries on the mountains. Easy parking and nice walks around the...More

I honestly don't know! The site is managed by the Northern Ireland Environmental Agency so I would imagine you would need to ask their permission, although I have a feeling they wouldn't mind, as it is freely open to the public. Do an internet search in that name to get their contact details, and "Dundrum Castle" as well, and click on Images for the latter, as this will give you a good idea of what the ruins are like. I would think that the keep is the only suitable place for what you have in mind, as the floor is level, and it's more sheltered - your candles might not blow out!
