Dunluce Castle

Dunluce Castle

Some people say this castle, built on a massive basalt outcropping on the Antrim Coast, inspired Cair Paravel. Apart from a couple of barrel towers, it doesn't look much like Pauline Baynes' medieval-style castle; the rest of it was built in the 16th century and looks distinctly house-ish. The fortress was vacated not long after a big chunk of the kitchen fell into the sea on a stormy night, killing several people.
