    Dunluce Castle, County Antrim, Ireland

  • Nicci Sheils

    Dunluce Castle is a now-ruined medieval castle in Northern Ireland. It is located on the edge of a basalt outcropping in County Antrim. Dunluce Castle has not been inhabited since 1639 when, following a brutal storm, part of the castle kitchen fell into the sea due to cliff erosion. The disaster happened suddenly and without warning, as seven of the kitchen staff were plunged to their death.

Dunluce Castle, County Antrim the ruins have a desolate grandeur as they rise dramatically from basaltic rock standing over a hundred-feet sheer above the wild and chill sea. Separated from the mainland by a deep chasm crossed only by a narrow bridge and penetrated below by a long cave, this precarious rocky outcrop occupied a position of great strategic importance that was fought over for centuries, eventually becoming, in the sixteenth century, the principal stronghold of the McDonnells.
