Dunluce Castle, Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland proves to be the most histrionic places I’ve been to in the entire United Kingdom. The Dunluce Castle has set an over-the-top mark that’s too haunting and entrancing to look at, I would have wanted to be a knight-in-shinning-armor right there and then.

The Dunluce Castle is located melodramatically close to a headland that heaves straight into the rough sea shore, which is along the North Antrim coast. It’s considered a now-ruined medieval castle and is said to be have its history starting from the 13th century. So much history in this castle, involving a lot of achaeological evidences, important historical dates and names, and involving a lot Christians, Vikings, and clans. But interesting fact is that it’s regarded as the possible inspiration for Cair Paravel in C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia! Yes, now you see the resemblance too.

What’s even cooler is the fact that there’s even an iphone and androic app developed for the Dunluce Castle, which can be used to serve as a visual or audio tour for folks interested to go and see the fortress. But what’s even way way cooler is another fact that the there’s evidence that you can see the Northern Lights from the Dunluce Castle! Yes – take me back right now please? But nonetheless yet however, if you happen to skip out on the Northern Lights part, there’s still something bucketlist worthy over this side of Northern Ireland: YES SCONES C/O THE WEE COTTAGE! Salvation, yes. 

This mythical food place is one big check for the soul, the food fares are made to redeem humankind with its utmost quality and hospitality. The people are the the friendliest bunch I’ve ever encountered, like modern descendants from the Dunluce Castle’s royalty clan. HUMANITY - meet SCONES from Heaven. Overall, the Dunluce Castle is one of the most memorable castles you should visit in Northern Ireland. It can spark soulful inspiration, be it smores, be it castle floors, be it northern lights and sea beds. Northern Lights, I’ll probably come back for you, can?
