Overview

Visited as a group and had a great experience thanks to the staff and work that has been done to help disabled visitors.

Transport & Parking

3

We came via tour bus and was dropped off at the entrance. There is limited blue badge bay parking available. Unaware of any public transport options.

Access

3

The layout of the starting building is clearly signposted and effective even in a small space. There is slow decline to the castle itself and later some uneven ground/cobblestones. The staff brought out a wooden ramp so I could get up to another level. However the “main rooms” of the castle were not accessible for wheelchair users (up 3/4 large steps). You can still get an amazing view from the middle part - on a clear day you can see Scotland from the Antrim coast!

Toilets

Available at the visitor centre at the beginning. Down a short winding path which has enough space for my wide power chair. Doors were light, handrails on both sides of bathroom and enough room to get a chair in.

Staff

Amazing. Upon finding I would have trouble getting up to a part of the castle that had interesting drawings and views, they brought out a makeshift solid ramp and ensured I could get up and down safely. As I couldn’t get up to the main rooms they stood with me and gave me a “private tour”, expertly described. For me this makes up for missing out on some extra castle.
