[Photo Journal] Caves of Cushendun in Northern Ireland

Otherwise known as Melisandre's Caves in GoT.


Myra here.

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Melisandre’s Cave

Over the past several weeks, I have been sharing photos from the Game of Thrones (GoT) tour that I have taken while I was in Dublin last year. In this set of pictures, the tour guide has brought us to the Caves of Cushendun, otherwise known in GoT as Melisandre’s Cave where she has given birth to the shadow that eventually murdered Renly Baratheon. Enjoy!

The strongest trees are rooted in the dark places of the earth. Darkness will be your cloak, your shield, your mother’s milk. Darkness will make you strong.

When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.

My old septon used to say books are dead men talking. Dead men should keep quiet is what I say. No one wants to hear a dead man’s yabber.

Men live their lives trapped in an eternal present, between the mists of memory and the sea of shadow that is all we know of the days to come.
