Spring Time, Dundrum

At the foot of the Mourne Mountains lies Dundrum Bay, and on the hill above, is Dundrum Castle.

This is one of the most majestic 12th Century Castles in Ireland, started by John De Courcy, but settle well before that, back into the days of the Red Branch Knights.

Around the castle flanks lies the wood, planted in the 1800's now a semi-native sanctuary for wildlife.
