What a beautiful place and so much history. That parts of this castle are still standing hundreds of years later is a testament to the workmanship put into building it. Why some of the reviews suggest that it's a great view and good enough to...More

We did not go into the grounds but it was pretty from the parking lot. Very much looks like all the beautiful pictures and it didn't look too busy. We just didn't want to pay and didn't want to stop long.

Truely impressive and extensive historical site. The village, no longer visible, which was erected to sustain and support the castle is explained and contextualised very well. The remaining walls and buildings give a very good feel for life ad lived on the site. Do take...More

Dunluce castle has fabulous views out over the Atlantic ocean, a must see when in the area. Maybe a little more insight into how the inhabitants of the castle would have lived would improve it further!

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.
