Postcard from Ireland: Mussendun Temple and Downhill Demesne


Mussendun Temple and Downhill Demesne, County Derry, Northern Ireland. Perched on a 120 foot cliff over the ocean, this dramatic spot is a fantastic place to explore and visit. The beach below was used in the Game of Thrones series to film the burning of the Seven Gods. The mansion was built in the 18th century by the Earl of Bristol, destroyed by fire in 1851, and rebuilt in 1870. During WWII, it was used to billet RAF servicemen and women.
