Average Reviews


A picturesque castle and medieval fortress, the ruins of Dunluce Castle bears witness to a tumultuous history. This magnificent Castle stands proud on the cliffs overlooking the rugged Antrim Coast.



Situated high on the sheer cliffs on the Antrim Coast lies a magnificent medieval structure know to all as Dunluce Castle. Once a towering fortress, Dunluce is one of the most picturesque and romantic castles on the entire island of Ireland. The original castle was built in the 13th century by the 2nd Earl of Ulster, Richard de Burgh, but the ruins which you see today are from the 16th and 17th centuries. In it’s time Dunluce Castle was inhabited by both the feuding McQuillan and MacDonnell clans, and even came into the ownership of Winston Churchill by way of marriage to Clementine Hozier. Churchill handed ownership of Dunluce Castle to the Northern Irish Government in 1928. The site has been a great source of archeological information and many of the excavated historical exhibits are on display for public viewing. Did you know? There is a huge cavern, known as Mermaid’s Cave; situated 25 metres below the castle on a sheer basalt cliff.
