The most haunted spots in Ireland
The dark history of the Emerald Isle lurks in every shadow
Ireland has an ancient history of communing with supernatural forces. The combined influences of ancient Druidry, Celtic rituals, and colonial atrocities have left this small island brimming with metaphysical activity. Traditionally, the Irish celebrated Samhain, now called Halloween, on the 31st of October. They believed that the veil between the living and the dead was at its thinnest on that night. But in certain dark places, the veil is always thin.
