(spooky witch hunt trail for little ones with Puckus found at the end!)
Puck the prankster
The best-known ghostly but friendly resident of Malahide Castle, is a mischievous spirit named Puck, who lived there during the reign of Henry VIII. Puck was reportedly a four-foot-tall watchman who also served as a jester to a generation of the Talbots, the aristocratic family who were in possession of the estate for around 800 years (apart from the Cromwellian period in which it was under the control of Miles Corbet).
Puck has historically been regarded as a non-threatening spirit whose “haunting” of the castle more so revolves around protecting it – and pranking those within its walls. He is a ‘nice’ ghost. Talbot family letters are said to mention his continued presence for generations, referring to a sense that he was still acting as a watchman centuries after his death
We are dialling up the childlike fun with a spooky quest this Halloween with lighting, sound effects and theatrical hilarity!
