Experience medieval history on the cliffs of the Antrim coast at Dunluce Castle. Dating as far back as the 13th century, the now-ruined castle represents the rich history of Northern Ireland. Tour the ruins of the great hall to imagine how it must have looked in the past, or climb the cliff-top towers for impressive views of the coastline. Grab an audio-visual guide at the entrance to view animations of the castle’s structures rebuilt and hear information on the castle’s long history. Kids will love the audio treasure hunt, which leads them on a search for artifacts throughout the castle grounds.
