Limerick Civic Trust Halloween Tours Return to King’s Island

Limerick Civic Trust Halloween Tour returns to King’s Island after hundreds enjoyed the tours last year

Limerick Civic Trust Halloween Tours Return to King’s Island

Dark nights provide the perfect backdrop for Limerick Civic Trust Halloween Tours taking place from 26 October to 4 November at the ancient Bishop’s Palace on Church Street, King’s Island, Limerick.

The crazy ghoulish tours will be held three times daily, 4 pm, 5 pm and 6 pm by the Limerick Civic Trust and their chilling friends.

Hundreds enjoyed this unnerving experience last year so additional dates have been added. The Haunted Tour is suitable for all ages and takes in the historic Bishop’s Palace building and its ancient cellars through to the old St Munchin’s graveyard. Tales of some spine-tingling characters from Limerick’s medieval quarter are also incorporated.

Starting at the Bishop’s Palace you will hear the legend of the Bishop’s Lady and about the haunting experiences that the Limerick Civic Trust staff and volunteers have experienced in the building.

The tour will then take you further into the heart of King’s Island and St. Munchin’s Graveyard where you will learn about terrible murders, tales of ghosts that warn of impending death, strange goings on in the graveyard at night and also learn about the Delmedge ghost that is said to haunt the area.

The evening terminates in the church with some old-fashioned fun and games for young and old alike to celebrate the Samhain child in all of us. Everyone receives a certificate of completion and all children receive a goodie bag. Dressing up is encouraged!

Come and join Limerick Civic Trust for this creepy tour of old Limerick.
