The castle commands an interesting position on the road from Portrush to Bushmills. Unfortunately, a chain wire fence spoiled photos of the site from the car park.

This castle is a ripper. Not only the quality and extent of the ruined remains but also the archaeological value associated with the nearby former Dunlace village. There's a good information building to visit prior to the castle itself which has an informative short video...More

A must see in Ireland! We went in 2016 and again this year so my 7 year old grandnephew could also see it! Just breathtaking! Easy to find and easy to walk through also!

Stopped here on the way to Portrush, especially as it was sunny. The castle has a really scenic outlook, and you can look around the old building and the exhibit. When we visited the path to the cave at the bottom was closed for repairs...More

Who doesn’t love a castle over looking he ocean? This was the first castle we visited on our 9 day vacation of Ireland. We loved the scenery around this castle! It is a great place to visit and really neat learning about its past!

A great place for families to visit. The ruins of the castle are substantial enough to imagine it in its prime. Views are stunning. Cost of admission is reasonable ( unlike giants causeway). Parking is available and nearby cafe is well worth dropping in.

Really enjoyed the visit. The staff were welcoming and the views were great. Not a place that you would need to spend hours at - we saw everything in about 30 mins.

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

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.
