Dunluce Castle

Our first castle was found by BIB. She has an amazing amount of information in that little

Dunluce Castle is really the shell of a castle, abandoned by the MacDonnall Clan in 1689 after the back wall, with the kitchen attached, fell into the ocean during a dinner party. No dessert that evening.

It is still an imposing sight, with magnificent views.
