If you have a love of things that go bump in the night (no not that!), then you will love our Ghostly Pub Tour of Cork. This is a unique experience that brings together yarns and tales of grave robbers, pirates and head hunters and other locals from around the city....
Meeting outside Cork Opera House, you will intrepidly embark up the ancient streets around Shandon where the streets once ran red with the blood of slaughtered animals. Over the space of 2 hours you will stop into two spooky watering holes where an air of doom pervades and where the walls stand mute witness to ancient terrors.
Continuing along the river quays, we end up by last marshes in Cork before our last stop of the evening - The Franciscan Well, reputedly Cork's most haunted pub. Back in the mists of time there once stood a monastery with a Holy Well on this very spot where people from far and wide used to come to have evil spirits driven from them. It obviously worked because the only spirits found now are in bottles! After an evening of walking, laughing and imbibing, it's time for some food, before you take on your own night time adventures.
