Ballygally Castle Hotel


Ballygally Castle in Ballygally, Ireland

Ballygally Castle, in County Antrim, is among Northern Ireland’s
more haunted areas. These days it happens to be a three-star resort, even though absolutely no official ghost tours are available, the notorious “Ghost Room” is forever open to visitors that are brave enough to stop in.

On a brilliant sunshiny morning, Ballygally Castle is a living postcard—a captivating, more or less teal-colored Scottish baronial chateau fronting the deep sea in Northern Ireland. On an overcast, inclement late evening, Ballygally is right from a 50s terror film. There’s a gloomy coastline highway that will take you to the fortress on the slope. You might imagine the lightning flashes helping to make Ballygally’s Scottish stone glare a blanched greyish before heading back to virtually black in the hours of darkness.

The Legend Of Ballygally Castle

Ballygally was actually developed by James Shaw, a Greenock,
Scotland local who moved to Northern Ireland in 1613. Shaw constructed the palace in 1625 in a French chateau design, with 5-foot-thick partitions, a sharp rooftop, as well as nook turrets.

Soon after the finish of the castle’s fabrication, James Shaw grabbed a wife known as Lady Isobel Supposedly, she had been having an extramarital relationship with an unknown seaman.
Around that time she bore a baby girl who could have been the love child of the seaman.

The instant James Shaw realized all this, he went straight into a fury, shutting his wife in the turret. His anger built up until it perhaps drove Lady Shaw from the window, or maybe a few thugs threw her to her demise.

Lady Shaw has been seen in the older section of the castle particularly in the Ghost Room several times the years. But bear in mind that Lady Shaw is definitely not the only ghost haunting Ballygally.

Though the traditional castle segment of the resort is the most paranormally active, ghosts have been encountered in every part of the lodge.

Several frequent stories consist of the noises of small children giggling and then running around
having fun, the rustling of a silk material gown while nobody is about to create
this kind of noise, showers that just go independently on and overflow the bedrooms  below, and then there are numerous records of ghostly taps on visitor room doors all the way through the resort. Whether or not that prank is ghostly, guests report opening their doors to discover there was no one in the hallway outside.
