LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Dunluce Castle.
Located in the region
of Dunluce, Northern Ireland the Dunluce Castle is now a ruin of its
former glory. Surrounded by dramatic cliffs of sandstone, basalt,
chalk and clay, with a view of a magnificent coastline, it was built
by the Earl of Ulster, Richard de Burgh.
Often besieged, it had
quite a colorful history with many murders and hangings having taken
place here. Once, the North wall of the kitchen is said to have
collapsed into the sea causing many servants to perish.
The first castle built
at the spot was erected by the MacQuillans and can be traced as far
back as the fourteenth century. One of the ladies of the house is
still said to wander the Tower in the North East. She is said to
have died broken hearted at being forbidden to marry her lover by
The ghost of a former constable of the castle, Peter Carey who was
put to death by Sorley Boy from whose possession he had gained the
castle and into whose possession Queen Elizabeth the First ordered
the castle back is said to haunt it in his eternal shame.
The magic and otherworldly air that
pervades the atmosphere in and around the castle has charmed many
visitors and frightened plenty more. The spectral presences here are
reported to be gentle though, and do no harm.
Books have been
witnessed to place themselves from the shelves onto the floor and
radios switched on by unknown hands and mysterious cold spots
experienced. The general air of the place remain placid and
blissfully at peace.
