Dunluce Castle, Northern Ireland: Romantic Ruins
Along the Antrim coast an hour north of Belfast, the evocative remnants of Dunluce Castle perch dramatically on the edge of a rocky headland. During the Middle Ages Dunluce resisted several sieges until one stormy night the castle's kitchen and servants tumbled suddenly into the sea! Local guides are expert at bringing the turbulent past of ruins like this to life for visitors.
