This a photo that did the rounds on the more visual social media spots such as Pinterest, Imgur and Reddit. The varying captions claim it is a “castle island” and many say it is in Dublin.
As an office of native Irish people our first reactions was “Wow!” and then, "Wait, this can’t possibly be real."
However, all you have to do is carry out a cursor Google Image search to see that many are taken in by this Photoshop trickery. This image is actually Khao Phing Kan island, also known as “James Bond Island,” in Thailand, with a portion of the Lichtenstein Castle, near Honau in the Swabian Alb, Baden-Württember, Germany, plonked on top.
There you have it! Don’t believe everything that you see!
