Bonus: Dunluce Castle– you can’t get married here but it’s a fabulous location for photo’s if you are in northern Ireland
This is Dunluce Castle poised on a cliff overlooking the sea in Northern Ireland
Unfortunately, the castle was so precariously perched that the kitchen literally fell into the sea during a particularly bad storm and the beautiful 16th-century structure was abandoned. Even though Dunluce Castle lies in ruins, it is still enough to inspire royal daydreams. In its more recent history, it has been used as a filming location for movies and even served as the House of Greyjoy in Game of Thrones. You can access the castle via a narrow bridge leading to it’s clifftop location.
Located underneath the ruins of Dunluce Castle is a sea cave known as Mermaid’s Cave. The rocky tunnel is a natural phenomenon but it was probably once used for escapes and attacks against the castle. It acts as a kind of tunnel leading to the crashing waves but is almost invisible from above.
