Ghost Stories

This 1900s Gothic Revival castle in County Offaly has a turbulent history. The first castle was destroyed in 1209 and rebuilt in 1213. In 1922, it was burnt down during the civil war and rebuilt in 1928. It first opened as a hotel in 1994 and over the years, ghostly apparitions and crying sounds have been reported in bedrooms like the attic Geraldine room.

A monk named Hugh is said to haunt areas of the castle like the banquet room and dungeon bar, reportedly appearing to visitors and staff and sometimes giving prophecies. Paranormal investigators from Living TV’s Most Haunted filmed here during the show’s fifth season.
