Stopped by to take a photo. Not really exciting - as there are so many other ruins in Ireland. Worth a stop for a quick photo.

Couldnt walk down because the wind was blowing a gale! It sits out on a loverly promontory- and I was glad to get a shot if it with me since it is a family ruin.

Be warned, people have gotten mixed up with Dunseverick and Dunluce castle down the road. There is not much to see that is left of the castle and we just took photos from the viewing point.
