Dunluce Castle:  Does it Look Familiar?  It May Well Be!  Here's Why...

If you're eager to see Dunluce Castle and tour its ruins, then you'll need to head to one of the northernmost spots in all of Ireland. Belonging to County Antrim and therefore Ulster Province, Dunluce Castle is between two and three hours from Dublin Airport by car.

Stay on the M1, and be prepared for the road name to switch to the A1 when you cross over the border to Northern Ireland. When you hit the coast, you'll know you've arrive at Dunluce Castle on the aptly named Dunluce Road.    

Things to Know About Dunluce Castle

In Northern Ireland's County Antrim, you'll come across Dunluce Castle.

It was built on dramatic cliffs along the sea in the early 16th century, and its precarious location has always been the stuff of local legend.

Some stories tell of the castle's kitchen falling off into the water on a particularly stormy night.

The striking castle has been featured on albums covers and in hit movies for decades, and today the ruins can be toured solo or with a local guide.
