Haunted Castles of Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales

Ballygally Castle now a hotel

The castle is reputed to host a number of ghosts, the most active of which is the former resident, Lady Isobel Shaw, who amuses herself by knocking at the doors of different rooms and then suddenly disappearing. When she was alive, Isobel was locked in her room and starved by her husband. She leapt to her death from a window. Madame Nixon is another ghost who lived in the hotel in the 19th century. She can be heard walking around the hotel in her silk dress.The castle is the only 17th century building still used as a residence in Northern Ireland, and is reputed to be one of the most haunted places in the province
