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.

Pretty eerie place..you can really feel something around the place. The walled garden is well maintained with different types of flora and fauna. There are rare types of flowers that you don't usually see in the gardens and there's attention to details on the placement of the decors. A small souvenir shop is a plus supporting local artists. There is also a great coffee shop to grab a light bite or lunch.
I'd passed by Loftus Hall many times but recently on a long weekend in the Hook peninsula, we popped in for the tour. It is brilliant and we'll worth doing. Facilities there are excellent. Our guide was funny, knowledgeable and engaging. Highly recommended!
