Road Trip: Dunluce Castle

I don’t know about you, but living in this castle right next to the ocean seems pretty exciting but scary at the same time!

It was first built on the dramatic coastal cliffs of north County Antrim by the MacQuillan family around 1500, the earliest written record of the castle was in 1513.

It was then seized by the ambitious MacDonnell clan in the 1550’s, who set about stamping their mark on the castle under the leadership of the famous warrior chieftain Sorely Boy MacDonnell during an era of violence, intrigue and rebellion.

It has so much history, but I really went to enjoy the views it contains.

I was told the Golf course in this place is quite expensive too, between the views and the championships that goes on around here I still think it isn’t reasonable to charge a-lot of money just to view this place below.
