We didn't pay to go in but you can still get a good view of the castle exterior and the coast from the outer walking area. Worth a stop and it is on the way to Portrush.

This is one of the best castles I have ever been to. Entry price very reasonable, guide sheet useful and informative, children's room very interactive, shop not full of tat. This does not even cover the castle and grounds which were outstanding. So well preserved...More

The weather was spotty the day we went, but there were good views and there were a few sunny moments. Worth the visit. The history of the castle was very interesting. Suggest you look it up or wait to read about it there.

We were there on a rainy, windy day but the site is mesmerizing. We were lucky it was citizen's day and no admission fee. The site is very well maintained and beautiful. It is used by many wedding photographers. Must visit.

Not everyone enjoys or appreciates ruins but if you do then definitely stop here. While I wish there was better signage around the property, the ruin is extensive and well preserved. The movie in the Discovery Room was enough to get us started and having...More

This magnificent ruin perched on the edge of the cliffs is breathtaking both inside and views out to sea . The historical legacy of the once thriving village of Dunluce in the 1600 hundreds and the Scottish Plantation influence of the MacDonnells who deposed the...More

This castle show how mother nature can reclaim things. We were told the whole kitchen crashed down one night. We did not have time to walk up to the ruins, but the weather was such that it was a nice photo stop

We toured the castle on a rainy, windy day and still were glad we stopped. The medieval castle is ruins, but it's intriguing how it is built on the edge of the cliff. We probably stayed about 30 minutes but may have spent longer if...More

From the road side this looks amazing but when you pay to go in there it could be any old ruins really, i thought there would be more guides around to tell stories of the castle or something. But the views are amazing!

I really enjoyed walking throughout the castle ruins. The view of the coast side is stunningly beautiful. It is a marvelous site to see.

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.
