      About this trip

      Because we had such a massive interest in the "Haunted Halloween Ireland tour with Chris Fleming" and the fact that it sold out in such a short time, Mai from Secret Ireland Tours and Chris Fleming decided to create another similar tour for those who did not get the chance to go with us in 2024. 


      We have put together another 10 day tour to Ireland taking in most of the venues that were featured on the "Spooked Ireland" TV show with Chris. 


      You will take part in some investigations in Charleville Castle, Leap Castle, Spike Island (new venue) which is known In Ireland as "Ireland's Hell",  Hell's Fire Club, Leap Castle.

      You visit Duckett's Grove, Wicklow Jail. Ardgillan Castle, Ailwee Caves, St John's Castle. Would you like to visit a very special farm that has a fairy fort, portal, Cairn (underground passage tomb) Standing stone, fertility stone, and the owner, Pat Noone is also a natural healer.

      We will visit Drombeg stone circle and so much more.


      We offer interest free installment plans and you can also find a link for travel insurance companies on our website. 

      About our Ambassador Chris Fleming

      Who is Chris Fleming? 

      We are delighted to extend a warm welcome to Chris Fleming, a luminary in the paranormal realm with a captivating journey that began in a haunted childhood home. From early encounters with spirits, Chris's fascination evolved into a pioneering career, marked by the founding of Unknown magazine in the 90s and subsequent roles as a consultant and paranormal TV show host since 1999.


      His notable appearances on esteemed programs like Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters, Psychic Kids, Portals to Hell, and the award-winning Shock Doc, The Curse of Lizzy Borden, have solidified Chris's standing in the paranormal community. Recognized for introducing innovative paranormal devices, he co-hosted international TV series such as Dead Famous, and Help! My House is Haunted, and engaged in recent investigations overseas on Discovery Channel, including Spooked Scotland and Spooked Ireland.


      Beyond his television ventures, Chris dedicates his full-time efforts to spiritual mediumship and counseling through his private practice, assisting his clients globally. He traverses the United States as a sought-after public speaker, delivering lectures on paranormal subjects and life after death at colleges and universities. His expertise extends to organizing and hosting Paranormal Access Events in and around Illinois, along with hosting his long-running Spirit Talk podcast since 2006.


      A fervent traveler, Chris explores the world's most haunted locales, making contact with the spirits, culminating in a successful fan tour of Scotland in 2023. Eager to maintain this momentum, he plans an unforgettable haunted tour of Ireland for Halloween, featuring exclusive locations from his TV series that are inaccessible to others.

      In addition to his paranormal pursuits, Chris is an accomplished artist who paints, draws, and creates while caring for his four cherished rescue cats: Noir, Sweden, Noel, and Watson.

      Itinerary

      Day 1
      Malahide Castle/Kilmainham Jail/Ardgillan Castle

      Malahide Castle:

      King Henry II gifted Richard Talbot the lands and harbor of Malahide for his services to the crown in 1185. From that point on, the Talbot family became intertwined with Malahide’s history and development.


      A magnificent fortress with a long and dramatic history, and a few resident ghosts, Malahide also has gardens that you can roam through, It has a walled garden and a Butterfly house but its ghosts are active here all the time:

      Reports of spooky sightings go back as long as the castle’s 800-year history; hardly surprising when you consider the tales of battles, bloodshed, and broken hearts surrounding this medieval building.


      Some of these ghosts are connected to real historical figures that lived here while others are of more mysterious origin. One of the most famous ghostly residents is court jester Puck. Unlucky in love, Puck continues to nurse a broken heart in the turret where he used to live. You may also have heard of the lady in white; a female apparition who wanders the rooms and corridors of the castle.

      Plenty of visitors have reported encounters with these spectres – will you be next?!


      Kilmainham Jail:

      Kilmainham Gaol opened in 1796 as the new County Gaol for Dublin. While most of the prisoners were common criminals, it also held political prisoners involved in Ireland’s struggle for independence. Included amongst those held here were Robert Emmet, Anne Devlin, the Fenians, Charles Stewart Parnell, Countess Markievicz and the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising, 14 of whom were executed by firing squad in the Stonebreaker’s yard. The Gaol was closed in 1924 but was preserved as a national monument in the 1960s and restored by the Kilmainham Gaol Restoration Committee. It was handed over to the State in 1986 and today is run by the Office of Public Works.


      Ardgillan Castle:

      Initially, the site was heavily wooded, the name Ardgillan being derived from the Irish “Ard Choill” meaning High Wood. It was cleared out by service soldiers and itinerant workers in return for one penny a day, sleeping accommodation, and one meal.

      The house consists of two storeys over a basement which extends out under the lawns on the southern side of the building. When occupied, the ground and first floors were the living accommodations while the west and east wings were servants’ quarters and estate offices. The basement is comprised of the service floor, the kitchen, and stores. The Castle has now been restored and the ground floor rooms and kitchens are open to visitors for guided tours.


      Activity Level: Low

      Unfortunately, my review for this trip is 2 stars and I’ve conveyed my complaints to Mai on several emails. This trip did not live up to the expectations and was very disappointing when it comes to the itinerary changes, expectations, health and safety, overall costs, and what we received for the costs. The trip that was conveyed was not what I received. That’s unfortunate and I expect this review to be removed from the site.

      Hi Shannon, We are sorry that the trip did not live up to your expectations. As I explained to you in our email exchange, we have stated on our WeTravel itinerary, each days itinerary is subject to change depending on weather and other things. I know that the tour guide decided to change a few things around because of weather, and you did not see some places that you wanted. This could not be avoided. We have had great comments from many of the other people in the group.

      The trip was absolutely fantastic! The hotels had that Old World feel and we situated close to the center of towns so there was plenty to do. The scheduled events were plentiful but not so much you felt rushed. Our guide Frank was the best! His unique experience of life as an Irishman made for a great perspective on the culture and character of this great land. Everyone was so pleasant. I definitely recommend an Irish tour of your own.
