There have been various myths that Huntington castle has been plagued by ghosts of Druids in the fields and even in the castle. It is said that the Druids could, at a stroke, create a mist; start fires at will; and bring down showers of blood. They were feared because they would sacrifice, men and woman, to please their gods. It also has a well that has never run dry, and because of that it has saved the castle from siege in many instances.

What people are saying:
Went to the Halloween Ghost Tour for Adults, and it was excellent perfectly spooky and yes had well worked frights along the way. Time and money has been invested for this attraction and it’s well worth the entry fee. when you finish the tour your left wanting more, which showsyour hosts have done a good job. Have (to my shame as a Carlow man!) not seen the Castle during the day but definitely on my list for an afternoon soon. Not sure I’ll stay the night though ! so convincing were the ghost stories. Well done and will be back for Halloween Ghost Tour next year.
