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.
