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. To visit Loftus Hall on your holiday in Hook Head, and find out what else Hook Head has to offer, use our Hook Head.

  • Well worth a visit.. there are not many buildings with such a haunted history and it's well presented.. there are tours of the house available through the summer. Nice coffee shop to relax and regain your nerve. Well worth a visit..
  • Really enjoyed the tour. It was eerie with lots of jumpy moments. The tapestry room was freaky. I like that they have a child friendly tour as well as an adults only tour. So much history to this house both scary and sad. The actors were all excellent. Very real. I would go back again.
