Throughout the years we've seen it for sale lots of times. Rumour was nobody could ever stay there. A friend of mine was asked to do work in there for the new owners (holiday makers) and he said he had a hard time finding other lads to come with him as they all said they didn't want to go inside. My friend told the home owners this and they said they were aware of the stories but they had never experienced anything. It's a terribly spooky house. I just feel like there is something not good about it that's why I stay away.
Do you mean the same house? A few miles towards clifden there is a wooded area on the right and a lake behind trees on the left heading in the clifden direction. The house has an old metal gate and you can just about see the house behind all the bushes?
I was in clifden over the weekend and really wanted to stop and have another look as it's been 13 years I pulled in at the gate and it still looks like nothing has been touched from the outside anyway. My girlfriend freaked out and didn't want me to leave the car so I didn't.
Obviously nothing has been done to the house I in the 13 years since I looked in the window.
The story I heard from my mother when I was a child was that some ucg students did some investigating into that house and during the process one jumped through one of the windows and two others committed suicide after that.
No idea if that's just fairytales or not. When I looked inside 13 years ago it certainly looked as though it was abandoned very suddenly without a thing packed away. The table being set is what really got me thinking. We went round the back and saw bats flying around and a partly damaged wooden door in the back.
I'm so curious to look in the windows again and take some pics this time to see if they show anything after. I might go down sometime with friends. But I really can't see myself going inside. Don't think I'd have the guts to do that.. there's definitely a strange feeling about that house .
I've never thought much about haunted houses and wicklow gaol and the likes but that house always made me think...
If you want I'll post the GPS location so you know the one I mean unless you know exactly which one I mean.
Unfortunately I probably won't be down there till about March now but who knows.
If anyone else has a look, please post..
