We first visited Kinbane a few years ago and decided it definitley needed a fresh visit.
Kinbane Castle is situated in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, on a long, narrow limestone headland projecting into the sea, approximately 5 km from Ballycastle on the road to Ballintoy.
The name Kinbane means White Head and refers to the white limestone on which the castle stands. Not much of the castle remains, and the path up to it is narrow and stepped.
A long winding staircase takes you down the cliff and it’s well worth it as the views are truly spectacular. Rathlin island can be seen clearly in the distance.
There is also the ruins of a small fisherman’s cottage which offers a wonderful panoramic view with Fair Head visible in the distance.
