Three Castle Head, Cork

Dun Lough castle, Dun a Locha, the fort of the lake, is perched on the edge of 100-metre cliffs on the western headland above the Mizen Head. The castle consists of three towers, hence the title “Three Castle”, connected by a rampart wall of some 20 feet in height; one of the highest medieval walls still intact in Ireland. ⁣

While the castle and lake itself were a bit of a blowout in terms of available light and wind hitting my tripod, I manage to get off a few around the cliff faces. Creeping towards the edge on my arse, not for the faint-hearted.⁣⁣

This place is so special. So many interesting find for photographs. Can’t believe I have never visited here in the 20 years I lived down the road.⁣⁣

If you are up for a bit of a hike then this is a gold location for photography. I only barely scratched the surface today. Somewhere to come back in all weathers for sure.⁣⁣⁣
