Castle House Island Dublin Ireland?


You may have seen this photo on the Internet along with the claim that "Castle House Island" is a real place in Dublin, Ireland. It's actually "James Bond Island" in Khao Phing Kan, Thailand. The castle was placed on the photo using Photoshop. The castle shown is only a portion of Lichtenstein Castle (Germany)

Wanna learn more about the castle and the island...
(According to Wikipedia.com)

Lichtenstein Castle is situated on a cliff located near Honau in the Swabian Alb, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Historically there has been a castle on the site since around 1200. It was twice destroyed, once in the Reichskriegs war of 1311 and again by the city-state of Reutlingen in 1381. The castle was not reconstructed and subsequently fell to ruin. In 1802 the land came into the hands of King Frederick I of Württemberg, who built a hunting lodge there. By 1837 the land had passed to his nephew Duke Wilhelm of Urach, Count of Württemberg, who, inspired by Wilhelm Hauff's novel "Lichtenstein" Lichtenstein added the current castle in 1840. The romantic Gothic Revival architecture, Neo-Gothic design of the castle was created by the architect Carl Alexander Heideloff.
 

'Khao Phing Kan' or 'Ko Khao Phing Kan' is a pair of islands on the west coast of Thailand, in the Phang Nga Bay, Andaman Sea. About 40ft from its shores lies a 20 metres (66 ft) tall islet 'Ko Tapu'. The island is a part of the Ao Phang Nga National Park. Since 1974, when it was featured in the James Bond movie 'The Man with the Golden Gun', it is popularly called James Bond Island.
