Tour the spooky Loftus Hall, an abandoned house claimed to be haunted by a young woman's ghost and the devil himself. The current structure was built in the 19th century, though the property has been used since the Middle Ages. The house features a spectacular staircase; the only other known staircases of this design are in the sunken Titanic ship and inside the Vatican. You can take guided tours, or rent a bike and ride around the Hook peninsula. To visit Loftus Hall on your holiday in Hook Head, and find out what else Hook Head has to offer, use our Hook Head.

  • From the road Lofus Hall looks as imposing as it does intruiging. I'd love to visit it, but it is padlocked and clearly closed. Online research reveal it has been closed and sold.

  • Great tour, friendly staff! Would recommend this place highly while you have the chance as it will be finishing up soon! After taking part in this tour, I was very sad to hear that they won't be able to continue this tour as the building is up for sale, but very glad we got to see it! Very creepy, yet beautiful house. The stories behind it are sad, yet interesting and anyone with an open mind & good imagination would love it. We were also informed that they couldn't perform jump scares due to Covid-19 (which I was grateful for) but I don't think the tour even needs them since the place is so creepy on its own anyway! (We wore masks and kept our distance from eachother) Beautiful area surrounding it, and Hook Lighthouse is nearby as well which I would also highly recommend! Our tour guide was very funny and kept you interested throughout, and the girl at the welcome desk was very friendly & helpful too! Great start to our staycation!
  • GET THE BRENNANS BACK!! Loftus Hall which markets itself as Ireland's most haunted house is blessed with finding itself situated on the Hook Peninsula which is a mecca for tourists. Surrounded by the sea and adorned with beautiful gardens, it's a lovely place to visit. However there is something missing here which leaves visitors scratching their heads in wonderment. Loftus is heavily marketed towards first time visitors curious about the rich history . However once you've done the tour you're not going to go back on a regular basis. And if you are a local just looking for a coffee or a bite to eat the €4 entrance fee is a bit steep. Granted, the entrance fee allows access to the spectacular gardens and on a fine day there is no better way to spend an hour than admire the beautiful borders. They have a lovely Cafe, sheltered courtyard with a bbq area which was noticeably empty. I really feel that they are missing a trick here and one should be able to go to the cafe without being charged an entrance fee. The cafe itself did not have a huge selection, mainly cakes and coffee. Another missed opportunity, maybe the owners could have an amazing kitchen garden which supplies the cafe.
