Rumour has it that people have disappeared inside its walls. The stories of its past speak of pure evil, hidden rooms and murder. It is a place of death and once you step inside, there is nooooo escape!

And watch out, the carnival is in back town! Lock your doors. Hide your children. Nobody is safe, for when the sun goes down, the freaks come out to play!

Ghost Hunters (Day Time Event) Ages 6+

The Spectral Forces Investigation Unit is looking for brave new recruits to join the team and help investigate a series of strange happenings at Morbid Manor! Reports have recently surfaced from local residents detailing a series of strange happenings. Preliminary investigations by local law enforcement have so far failed to provide an answer, but now the Spectral Forces Investigation Unit has been called in to help discover if the answer lies on the other side! Are you brave enough to join the team and enter Morbid Manor? Will you discover the secrets within?

haloween tours ardgillan castle

About Ardgillan Castle
Although referred to as a Castle, the residence at Ardgillan is a large country-styled house with castellated embellishments. Originally named “Prospect House”, the central section was built in 1738 by Robert Taylor, with the west and east wings added in the late 1800s.

Initially the site was heavily wooded, the name Ardgillan being derived from the Irish “Ard Choill” meaning High Wood. It was cleared out by service soldiers and itinerant workers in return for one penny a day, sleeping accommodation and one meal.

The house consists of two storeys over a basement which extends out under the lawns on the southern side of the building. When occupied, the ground and first floors were the living accommodations while the west and east wings were servants’ quarters and estate offices. The basement comprised of the service floor, the kitchen and stores. The Castle has now been restored and the ground floor rooms and kitchens are open to visitors for guided tours.

Halloween National Reptile Zoo Kilkenny

DayOut comments:

Visited here in Summer 2015 and it’s well worth a look. The team are very knowledgeable and passionate and getting up close to these reptiles is a really a unique experience that you simply won’t get anywhere else! We saw lots of reptiles, large snakes and were simply a sheet of polycarbonate away from the crocs/alligators. Viewing the inhabitants of the zoo during the day is one thing – doing it at night with just a glow stick adds an extra element! Hope we don’t meet this guy in the dark!
