Dunluce Castle

    

 

 
 
 Cheers for 2006!
 
 
     Ireland has one World Heritage site which is The Giant’s Causeway. Along the N. Antrim (County) coast four castles exist which are quite impressive because of their locale and the types of fortresses they still are, despite the fact that they are in ruins. Dunluce Castle which featured in my last blog entry is the eeriest of all, but all are worth seeing. The others are Dunsverick, Kinbane, Ballycastle and Giant’s Causeway itself, which has quite a legend attached to it.
     If you tour that coastline they will fill you in on the details and I guarantee you’ve never seen anything like it.
      You will find Dunluce if you approach the Causeway from the west, as it is high on a crag. It is purported that its kitchen was blown into the sea. Dating back from the 13th century it was the McDonnell’s abode, as they were the chiefs of Antrim. The roofs are gone but much of it is intact enough for you to glory in its former magnificence.
     Dunsverick is an older castle, and on the other side (read: east) of Giant’s Causeway. Not much of it remains. Kinbane is further east and is a 16th century stunner and a crowd pleaser. Check out the Irish Castles photo album to see Dunluce and many other Irish castles. Some I have written about and others I plan to write about in the future.
