Malahide Castle

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Malahide Castle

The ghost of a jester, named Puck, had a short-lived love affair with a woman responsible for provoking rebellion. Since his murder, Puck has been seen in his full outfit, sometimes appearing in photos. The son of Lord Galtrim died when a battle broke out on his wedding day; his bride married his rival and, since then, he appears to guests with a spear wound on his side. In the castle’s Great Wall, a painting hung of a woman in white; it is said she would leave her painting to wander the castle grounds. Other ghosts are reported here as well.

  1. Arrgg, this is one very well built castle I dare say. Me lady friend and I ventured to this establishment right after we left the cemetery. I dare say that the painting of the woman on the wall does seem to stare at ye and ye walk by her. Tis very quiet and peaceful inside the castle, and to venture outside is amicable as well.
