It really is wonderfully situated, and surrounded by steep drops on each side. Perfect defensive position.
First used by the McQuillans, it became the seat of Clan McDonell in the 16th century, and served as the seat of the Earl of Antrim until after the Boyne in 1690.
Less historically significant, it has also been used to film the latter parts of the less than stellar Jackie Chan movie, The Medallion (but Clare Forlani was also in it, so how bad can it be :) ).
The interior of the original Manor House. Interesting features here like some of the original plaster on the walls, remnants of the original stairs and...
Visitor signage is excellent as usual.
And this is just the start of the better weather. Who knows where Le Duc could end up in the summer months ?
