  • Overview

    Ireland has one of the richest folklore traditions in the world, primarily because the Celtic culture has been maintained for more than 2,000 years and the tradition of oral composition and performance has been strong throughout Irish history. So, join us at the Museum and we'll tell you a ghost story. Don't be alarmed by the creak of the floorboards, the murmurs in the basement, the shrill ululations of a distant dog.Try not to be perturbed by the flickering candle, the fleeting shadows, the horned, hairy hand that appears at your elbow. Something moved? There's a face in the brickwork? A murderer, long ago, was buried in the cellar? Stay calm. Breathe deeply. Perhaps the veil between our world and the next is thinner than you might care to imagine, especially on All Hallow’s Eve.
