Meet your guide upstairs in Lanigan’s Bar and Restaurant and don a witch hat and cape. Each tour is led by one of these characters: The Witch, Dr. Death, Highwayman, Priest Hunter, Monk, or Banshee.
Walk the spooky streets of historic Kilkenny with your guide and learn about the curse of Sir Richard Shee along St. Mary’s Lane and visit haunted landmarks including St. Mary’s Church and graveyard.
The walk continues at Kilkenny Prison, the Rothe House, and Black Abbey with its spooky stone tombs. At Kilkenny Castle, you may feel the spiritual presence of local characters including James Freney, the Irish Robin hood, or Dr. Death.
The final stop is John’s Bridge, which collapsed into the River Nore in 1763.
The tour ends back at the starting point.
