Cary is a historic barony in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.[2] To its north is the north-Antrim coast, and it is bordered by three other baronies: Dunluce Lower to the west; Dunluce Upper to the south; and Glenarm Lower to the south-east.[2] The world-famous Giant's Causeway is situated on the north coast of Cary. Dunineny Castle lies in the civil parish of Ramoan within this barony.[3]

The barony is named after the Cothrugu (Cotraigib, Crotraigib), an ancient tribe.[4]
