There is a view point on the road where you can see the ruins, but then isn’t much to see even though they are on an impressive location. Most of the ruins are at the bottom of the cliff.

We hiked up to this remnant of a castle on the Causeway Coast and enjoyed the views and marveled at how this castle was perched on the bluffs - must climb down then up very carefully.

Someone told us about this place, so we followed some road signs not sure what to expect and then there it was. It took our breath away. Photos don't do it justice. absolutely beautiful.

Stopped here with a group. There is a parking lot next to the site. There is not really much to see here as what's left of the castle is only a small ruin. It's a beautiful area, but will only require a short stop. Not...More

Ancient ruins on a cliff, overlooking the ocean! Doesn't get more picture perfect than that on a beautiful sunny day in beautiful Ireland. Pull over on the side of the road, and enjoy the view...pretty sure its the best vantage point, anyway.

There is very little left of this cliff top ruin. The roadside lay-by offers the best view for a photo of the dramatic situation. There is an information board.

What remains of the castle is in a beautiful setting but there are only small sections of two walls. There is a lovely walk which would be great on a good day . Lovely to see from the viewing point but hardly worth walking to.

Sitting on a grassy peninsular this Castle ruin tells a story of long past. For those driving there is a viewing point along the road to the Giants Causeway. For walkers apparently the The Causeway Cliff Path also runs close by.
