Our History 

First and foremost Dunluce is a family home. The Tinneys, have been the proud owners of Dunluce Castle since 2005 and are the 7th family to reside here. While over the last century some renovations have refreshed Dunluce to make it possible to run the building as a functional family residence, much of the home is in its original state.
A mansion of some 13 main rooms and a dozen original fireplaces, its imposing Blackwood staircase and cedar ceilings, Dunluce has much to offer for lovers of history.
