After breakfast at Huntington Castle, the group will depart for another day of haunted history on the Kilkenny Ghost Tour, in the medieval city of Kilkenny. Lunch will be served at Kyteler’s Inn, while the legend of Alice Kyteler, the first recorded person condemned as a witch in Ireland, is brought to life.
After lunch, the group will be brought to High Banks Orchard (where Alice is thought to have hid from persecution) to sample some delicious gins produced locally in the orchard. Their next destination will be luxurious Lyrath House Estate, a beautiful five star retreat nestled on acres of mature parkland on the edge of Kilkenny City.
Pre-dinner cocktails will be served at Bridie’s Bar and General Store at Kilkenny Castle, a charming watering hole with shelves stocked full of Irish artisan goodies. Kilkenny Castle itself is a dramatic medieval landmark, bursting with history and stories; the group will soak up the impressive atmosphere of the castle’s Medieval Room and explore its hidden nooks and crannies on a quick tour. A lavish banquet will be served in the dining room to celebrate a magical two day experience, with a choir to entertain guests and add to the memorable ambience.
