Shankill Castle in Paulstown, Co. Kilkenny offers frightening candle-lit Ghost and Paranormal Tours of the haunted Queen Anne Castle and ancient grave yard. The tour is guided by a member of the Cope family that live in the castle who recollect the local folklore, some chilling tales of the past residents and their own experiences and recent sightings. Due to the spooky nature, the tour is not suitable for children under the age of 15. However, don’t worry as there are other fun activities too!
These activities include early and not-so-spooky ghost tours, Story Time and the wonderful Wand and Quill Making Workshop. Children will learn about trees and birds as they design and customise their own magic wands and writing quills. Also make wonders of words with David Donohue at the Story Telling Workshop.
Be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Tickets available online at www.shankillcastle.com/scarefest. For Further Information or photos please contact Sybil Cope on 0877672656 or firstname.lastname@example.org
