We were ably assisted by the fabulous and friendly Mary C, and her tips and suggestions enhanced our visit to this part of Northern Ireland. We would encourage the powers that be to have the Visitor Information Centre Open all year, as there is no “off” season and visitors will benefit from the vast knowledge of the staff all year round.

Dunseverick Castle

Reviewed By RogerBrownfamily - Coleraine, United Kingdom

This may not look like much from the road, but this is a site of exceptional historical significance as the seat of ancient Irish kings, many of whom were crowned here. St Patrick himself visited here in the 5th century, and it has seen many a skirmish from invading Norsemen and others over the years. I have been captivated by this place since childhood as my family owned the land that the castle stands on until gifting it to the National trust in the early 1970s. It is a little bit of a hike up to the top but well worth it. A Chinese reality show about super models chose this as one of the sites to film and so it has literally been seen across the globe. People do visit here from all over the world and I hope they continue to do so. There is a little bit of something special about this place.....perhaps a little bit of Irish magic. Please come and experience it for yourself.
