Dunluce Castle

Dunluce Castle is a medieval castle dating back to the early Christians and the Vikings. This site of historic battles is set in breath-taking scenery along the North Antrim coast, 100 feet above the ocean on a panicle of basalt rock, and isolated from the coast by a 20-foot chasm. Over the years many changes and additions have occurred to the original structure – inside you will find Norman, Scottish, English and European architectural influences. Although the medieval castle is now a ruin, it still has partial remains of its round corner towers and outer wall. In 1639, during the time of Randal McDonald, the kitchen of Dunluce castle did fall in to the sea taking with it the cooking staff. Legend has it that out of all the kitchen staff, only one boy survived in a corner of the vanished room!
