DUNLUCE CASTLE

Well this past Thursday we did a ton of traveling to the North Coast of Ireland! We started off with going to the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge near the coast which was absolutely beautiful. You can be sure we took a lot of pictures! This destination is one of Northern Irelands top tourists attractions and I agree! After that we headed to Giants Causeway. It is an area of approximately 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. It was awesome! We walked along a path taking on some high winds and some rain. Haha although it was cold, we got to enjoy more great views that we don't see everyday. The next stop was at Dunlace Castle. This castle has been a wonderful insight into life on the North Coast of Ireland a few hundred years ago. It was really cool to walk around and hear the history of the castle! Last but not least, we went to Portstewart. It was a great time for us to try the famous "fish and chips" of Ireland. Chips being fries. It was very good!! Portstewart is famous for its homemade ice cream and I'm afraid to say the ice cream place was closed once we got there! It was a bummer. Soon after that we got back on the road to head back to The Manor. After this long day of travel we were ready to get some sleep, but will remember such a great day!
