All my Thursday Doors this week have been captured from a distance but to make up for that, the scenery is fantastic. The first property is Runkerry House on the Antrim Coast in the north of Ireland. Here’s a zoomed-in image I took with my phone. Sorry it’s not very clear but I can make out a couple of doors if I squint my eyes, lol.
Runkerry House is a stately home built in the 1860’s for Sir Edward Macnaghten, who was a barrister and politician from London. The sandstone building is now set out as private apartments and what a view they must have. I took this photo on a trip to Salmon Rock beach, Portballinatrae.
More doors from afar. These houses and apartments have an amazing view, just like Runkerry House. It must be lovely to live here all year round, I don’t think I would ever grow tired of that seascape.
We spent the afternoon on the beach as Ireland was having an usually hot, sunny weekend. This photo was taken as the evening was drawing in.
On the cliffs above the beach I spotted a strange looking roof – half grassy thatch, half slate. I wonder what it looks like from the inside. On a neighbouring house was a door, of sorts.
Or possibly a long window. Whatever it is, nobody will be getting in that way too easily – unless they use a pick.
Well, I’m back home now and the weather has turned a bit chillier but still dry. Norm has some interesting Thursday Doors over on his blog, if you’d like to have a look, with links to a great selection of international doors in the comments at the end of his post. Thanks for stopping by, this week.
