Haunted Irish Castles

There are many castles spread across this land. While some were built as opulent houses for the rich and powerful, many were built for defence purposes. Some are fine and have been well preserved, serving as museums, private homes or even hotels. Many others now lay in ruin. Every one of them tells a story, so here is a collection of castle hauntings from across Ireland.
