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 her family.

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.
