A Stranger Calls at Castletown House

A mysterious, evil stranger is said to have visited Castletown House in County Kildare on at least two separate occasions, and some visitors still experience an eerie feeling at the great house.

As Lady Anne watched, the ghost of a tall man in a grey coat began descending from the upper gallery, as if walking down a staircase even though there were no steps there. As he continued his descent, he stared at his terrified witness and emitted a shrill, brutish laugh that chilled her to the bone.
