Visited here last August on the way to the Kilkenny Arts Festival and really enjoyed seeing the castle and gardens. Well worth a visit if you happen to be in that area.

Halloween bank holiday weekend , looking for something to do ? This is the place to go, just off the M7 at Paulstown you will find a creepy castle with a lot of history .
Take the scare tour at night where you not fall asleep , I can't give any thing away as it would spoil it for you but the best fun I had in a long time . The tour from start to finish was very well put together , from the old house to the graveyard , you would want to give yourself an hour and a half from start to finish and if you have five or six of you , ring them up and they will do a deal with you . Great fun really enjoyed it .

Really enjoyed the tour around the house and Gardens of Shankill castle Paulstown. Highly recommend for a relaxing yet interesting day out. There was a group of children completely loving the magic wand making tour while we were there also. Couldnt resist tagging on for a while to listen in. Brilliant for younger children. Great party idea. Thanks Sybil for showing us around. Check the venue out on AirB&B. Plenty to see and do locally if you fancy a weekend ina unique historical venue.

I did the ghost tour and I was just blowing away but how freaky the set up was. I would highly recommend the tour.
