Dunluce Castle

Dunluce castle is situated between Portballintrae and Portrush. It is an amazing piece of architecture especially when you examine how the walls were constructed on steep cliff faces. 

Alongside the castle there existed the Lost town of Dunluce. Recent excavations have uncovered artifacts from the medieval period. Although the castle is very much a ruin it is easy to comprehend how it might have looked in its original state. 

Dunluce Castle is reputed to have been the inspiration for the C.S. Lewis Chronicles of Narnia.
