Malahide Castle and Demesne, County Dublin
Malahide Castle is one of the oldest and most historic castles in Ireland. From 1185 until 1975, it was the home of the Talbot family. This was a remarkable tenure by a single family and is one of the longest in Ireland. Malahide Castle with its 800 year old family history is haunted with many unseen and unknown spirits and their presence is felt in every room. Many historic castles and houses have one ghost, some have two or three, but Malahide Castle has five!
