Loftus Hall, Hook Head

4.0
#2 of 16 in Historic Sites in County Wexford
Tour the spooky Loftus Hall, an abandoned house claimed to be haunted by a young woman's ghost and the devil himself. The current structure was built in the 19th century, though the property has been used since the Middle Ages. The house features a spectacular staircase; the only other known staircases of this design are in the sunken Titanic ship and inside the Vatican. You can take guided tours, or rent a bike and ride around the Hook peninsula.

  • Though I found the tour was over really quickly and didn't exactly give me that trill I was seeking it was a great road trip down, and great to see the castle itself! Tour guides do a great job, definitely worth the experience! But I did want more... then what I got!
  • Worth a visit, super spooky place with some tall story’s. Nice cafe, great facilities and parking onsite. Well with a visit if you’re travelling around the the ring of hook 👍🏻
  • Very enjoyable family friendly spooky tour. Lovely building very historic. Apparently one of the most haunted places in Ireland.
  • Quick snappy tour, My mother was scared of it. Espically the devil scene. I didn't think it was that scary at all, but I'm knocking a point because you have to pay for parking.
  • Entertaining, not scary. A bit pricy for the amount of the house you see. I know they are raising funds to renovate more of the house, it was a bit underwhelming though...after a 3 hour drive.
