Ireland is known as being one of the most haunted countries in the world, with many of the world's most famous supernatural characters and stories finding their roots in Ireland. From the Celts to the Ulster planters each group has left its mark on the haunted history of Belfast. From the grandest buildings to the humble entries, you will hear tales from the underbelly of the city. We’ll take a journey through time and hear the folklore of Ireland and get introduced to fairies, banshees, and leprechauns. Hear how Halloween originated from the Gaelic harvest festival of Samhain when, according to legend, beings from the spiritual world could cross dimensions more easily as this is the time when the veil between this world and the other is at its thinnest. Hear how ‘Trick or Treat’ and carved pumpkins are inspired by the ancient Celtic traditions.
Discover how the city grew so fast in Victorian times when the rest of the country’s population was decreasing and the infant mortality rate was one of the highest in Europe, hear stories of thousands of bodies buried beneath the city streets, ladies of the night, Lucifers Match Factory, dire warnings of death and feel the spirits of the victims of the hangman where once the city gallows stood.
