Haunted Howth By Night - €35
Poets, Pirates and Ghostly tales are the main feature, as we journey through this ancient fishing village at night.
We'll meet at the train station in Howth, a peninsular village just east of Dublin. From there, we will visit the legendary Bloody Stream pub (the location of the Norman invasion into Howth in the 12th century) for a cold glass of beer and more tales of Vikings, pirates and Haunted Howth.
As we walk through Howth you will learn about the history of the 700-year-old castle and listen to the many ghostly tales that have plagued the castle over the centuries.
Immerse yourself in Irish culture as we walk the ruins of St. Mary's Abbey, where the dead don't always rest in peace.
We will also visit the Martello tower erected in 1803 to ward off a Napoleonic Invasion and the site of the first Howth castle.
We then visit the famous Irish poet (W B Yeats) former residence, that inspired the chapter 'Village Ghosts', which he later created based on his experiences in Hanuted Howth.
Lastly we finish off in one of the oldest pubs in Howth 'The Cock Tavern' for another glass of beer and more eerie tales.
Whether you have a passion for Irish history, or prefer listening to Ghostly tales and the myths and legends you have come to associate with ancient Ireland, there is something for everyone.
