I can’t describe Dunluce Castle any better than this quote from the Irish webzine Irelandseye.com:
Like something out of a Tolkien fantasy, the ruins of Dunluce Castle have a desolate, awe-inspiring grandeur as they rise dramatically from a precipitous basaltic rock standing over a hundred-feet sheer above the wild and chill northern 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.
In the 1600’s, the kitchen of Dunluce fell into the sea during a storm, killing several servants. The lady of the castle refused to live there any longer, and it fell into decay.
This was a must-see sight for Gary and I, as this castle was one of his first paintings.
