Inside Loftus Hall. The Loftus Hall Tour – Visit Irelands Most Haunted House

Do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe that the devil himself visited Loftus Hall? Did you know the Devil exited through the roof of Loftus hall and that hole in the roof cannot be repaired?

Loftus Hall – Ireland’s Most Haunted House

If not, (or even if you do) then a visit to Loftus Hall in Co. Wexford, Ireland just might change your mind. Ireland’s Most Haunted House, Loftus Hall is  open and running very well organised hour long tours which bring you through the history, and horrors of the haunted house. You may even catch a glimpse of the ghostly Lady Anna or one of the other ghostly demons.

I had known of Loftus hall for many years. As a child living in Waterford, you get told the stories of the devil and how he left the building. Loftus Hall is visible from Dunmore East so it was always in the focus of the young inquiring mind. At one point in the mid-90s it reopened as a bar, and I remember visiting it. The place had an un0ease about it, not just an old abandoned building but a sense that it lacked peace.

Even with my previous visit in mind, older and wiser, I was a small bit sceptical. I wasn’t sure how this old house could be the setting for a tour but I was proved very wrong within the first 5 minutes. The tour guides are very well prepared and give you a lot of history and facts to digest. I’m not going to give anything away are there are a few interactive elements to the tour also. For me the highlight (if you can call it that) was the visit to the tapestry room which is the most haunted room in the house, as I felt a real drop in temperature in this room, apparently associated with spirits. One story of what a child on the tour said to her mum, brought chills to my being.

It was a very well run tour and I might even be tempted to return for the more sinister adult only tour which is a lot darker and guided only by candlelight (which often goes out I was informed). Shortly after writing this post, one person took an unexplained photo with a potential ghost. The news story hit national press and went viral online so if you are interested in the paranormal, Loftus Hall is certainly one for you.

Admission to Loftus Hall : Tickets are €5 for children (who must be accompanied by at least 1 adult) and €9 for adults.

A great tour, my only gripe is that if you do the tour, your parking should be validated as it is €2 to exit the car park otherwise. (at the time of my visit, maybe this has changed now)

Lanzarote Airport Transfer Service

Lanzarote Airport Transfer Service – My Experiences

Imagine landing at an airport and finding out your travel agent never booked airport transfers for you. This happened to me when visiting Lanzarote Airport. At this stage I had no way of getting to my hotel and I was quite annoyed with the agent.

Having got a few prices from each transfer services at the airport, some of which were quite expensive and obviously trying their luck, I chose one. I ended up finding an excellent airport transfer service from a company called ‘Canal Travel’ which brought us from Arricife Airport to Los Farriones Hotel.

I found them to provide a very reliable service the owner Rafael was excellent in helping us on our arrival.

On departure back to the airport a week later, they were right on time (they were actually there in advance) at our hotel, and took our bags from the lobby. This level of service helped make departure from the hotel that bit easier.

I was well impressed and certainly recommend them if you are travelling to Lanzarote they are the ideal Lanzarote Airport Transfer Service.

My new Travel Reviews Website

Welcome to my new site Shane’s Travel Reviews. This travel reviews site was created because of a few reasons. Firstly, I love to travel and I have been to many places from UK, Spain, France, Italy and Czech Republic to Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. As a result, I have many travel experiences to share, from the best hotels and reviews of attractions, to the very best in food, restaurants and places to see.

This travel site will include the many reviews from my travels over the past few years and they will appear here on an ongoing basis. Some reviews, like the Fairmont Hotel Singapore and the Christchurch Commodore Airport Hotel, in New Zealand were uploaded while the site was being created.

I hope you enjoy reading the reviews on this site and please bookmark the page.
