With more than a thousand years of history, Dublin is one of the most haunted cities in the world. This ‘Northside Ghost Walk’, for four, will take you through one of the oldest parts of Dublin; the area once known as Oxmantow. This former Viking enclave has a rich haunted history.
You will discover the site of Saint Mary’s Abbey, one of the most powerful monastic settlements in Ireland in medieval times but now just a small ruin down an alleyway, passed by thousands of oblivious commuters every day. Hear the story of Lord Norbury, the infamous and sadistic ‘Hanging Judge’ who presided over the trial of Robert Emmet. Hated in life, in death he returned to continue his reign of terror.
If you’re feeling brave enough, you will venture down Hendrick Street, once the site of two of the most haunted houses in Dublin. Between them they were home to no fewer than six different ghosts. Demolished in the 1960’s, the houses are long gone, but the ghosts…?
You might want to steel your nerves before daring to follow the tour to Croppie’s Acre. This long abandoned site was used as a football pitch in the 20th century, shocking when you consider that it is a mass grave, the final resting place of hundreds of rebels executed after the 1798 rebellion.
This unique tour will shine a light on areas of Dublin that you thought you were familiar with, a memorable experience for you all to enjoy!
