Estate in west Ireland. The corner hidden by the bushes was part of a castle. In the 19th century, the property (what was left of it) was bought and the part you can really see here was added. It's vacant, but if I were a millionaire, I'd buy it and rebuild and furnish it enough to let people come in to see what's left.
Lisa Kleypas has a new book coming out about the son of the characters in The Devil in Winter. I am sure his character will be much less dark as, unlike his father, he has been raised by loving parents. Should be a fun read.
Dun Aengus - prehistoric fort at the edge of an 100 meter high cliff. The first construction goes back to 1100 BC; around 500 BC, the triple wall defenses were probably built along the western side of fort.
