Dunluce Lower is a barony in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.[2] To its north runs the north-Antrim coast, and it is bordered by three other baronies: Dunluce Upper to the south; Cary to the east; and the North East Liberties of Coleraine to the west.[2] The River Bush flows through this barony.[1] Dunluce Lower also formed the northern part of the medieval territory known as the Route.
