The Malahide Castle ghosts are as much a part of the estate as the ancient woodlands and the elegant rooms.
Reports of spooky sightings go back as long as the castle’s 800-year history; hardly surprising when you consider the tales of battles, bloodshed and broken-hearts surrounding this medieval building.
Some of these ghosts are connected to real historical figures that lived here while others are of more mysterious origin. One of the most famous ghostly residents is court jester Puck. Unlucky in love, Puck continues to nurse a broken heart in the turret where he used to live. You may also have heard of the lady in white; a female apparition who wanders the rooms and corridors of the castle.
Plenty of visitors have reported encounters with these spectres – will you be next?!
