If a history buff, this is definitely worth checking out. Lovely and well preserved ruins and absolutely gorgeous coastal views. We had a great visit!

We love exploring castle ruins-- we much prefer them over perfectly intact and decorated castles. Dunluce was probably our favorite we have ever explored. Not only is it on this amazing cliff, but the castle is big and you can wander around. It was not...More

Situated a short 5 - 10 minute drive from the Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle provides breathtaking scenery. The castle itself was once home to a family in the 1100s before a storm caused the kitchens to fall into the sea and killing 9 people in...More

Perfect spot to explore and take photos. We were here on a sunny Spring day making it just perfect! We did not do the tour so 30-45 min was all we needed. Don’t miss it!

Having visited Portrush for decades we thought Sunday was our day to take the plunge and go on a cultural trip to Dunluce Castle and we weren't disappointed. The sun was out, glistening on the sea. The buildings are beautiful, views stunning, history enlightening. We...More

Amazing castle ruin. I've been to a lot of castles in the UK, this was one of the most scenic! Beautiful, rugged coastline, even in the light rain, well worth the trip!

For us this was worth the admission fees. A bit of information - the castle was used as a model only for Game of Thrones - most reviews say that scenes were shot there - but they were not, but Disney will be shooting there...More

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.
