Castles: Ballybunion Castle, Ballybunion, County Kerry, Ireland. Built by the Geraldines in the 14th century, the castle rises from an elevated point above the cliffs that extend down in both directions to White Strand shore. It overlooks the mouth of the River Shannon. As the castle has suffered many battles (it was destroyed during the Desmond Wars) and bad weather, and as the sea walls are gone, as well, all that now remains is a ruin. Only the East Wall still stands.
The Fingal's sea cave in the Hebrides Islands of Scotland is a huge natural formation, discovered in the 17th century and called after an Irish legendary hero. Impossible not to feel like the hero of a tale walking its surroundings.
