Facts about Dunluce.

The lost town of Dunluce and its protected monument, Dunluce Castle, lie on the spectacular Causeway coastline between Portrush and Portballintrae. Dunluce Castle, although in ruins now, still stands proudly on the cliffs overlooking the North Atlantic Ocean.

Originally settled by the O’Flynn clan in 668 AD, the castle was rebuilt by Scottish mercenaries in 1500, and has changed owners a number of times through sieges and intermarriages. In 1608, the town of Dunluce was built by the first Earl of Antrim as one of the most advanced sets of housing structures in Europe, with indoor privies and a grid system of streets.

The site was used occasionally as a lookout during WWII, and the Mermaid’s Cave, a cavern located 25 metres below the castle, has been enjoyed by lovers for many centuries, although … back in the 1600s, one of the owner’s daughter tried to escape the castle via the cave with her lover and their boat was dashed against the rocks, and it’s rumored that her ghost still roams the northeastern tower where she had been imprisoned.

Dunluce Castle has appeared in the films Flight of the Doves, Your Highness, and The Medallion, and also in the TV series Great Railway Journeys and Game of Thrones. The castle is thought to have inspired C.S. Lewis’s Cair Paravel in his book series Chronicles of Narnia. Only in the last few years have more rigorous archeological excavations begun on the town of Dunluce, and they continue to reveal more of the history of life in the town in the 1700s.

Royal Portrush Golf Club will host the 148th Open Championship in 2019. It is the only golf course to have hosted the tournament outside of Great Britain. Golf Magazine ranked it twelfth in their list of the Top 100 Courses in the World, and Golf Digest ranked it as the fourth best course outside the United States in 2007. The only other time the golf course hosted The Open was in 1951 when Max Faulkner won his only major Championship.

The course was designed by Harry Colt and has been placed on the rotation by the R & A to host further Open Championships.
