Corporation Lands, Wicklow Ireland is home to one of the most haunted places in the country, Wicklow Gaol. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.



Wicklow Gaol is not for the faint of heart. Only the bravest of ghost hunters will tackle this property, which has safely earned its reputation as one of the most haunted places in Ireland. Locally it has been named “the Gates of Hell.” Wicklow Gaol was, for many years, was a place of horrendous atrocities in which prisoners were subjected to torture, starvation, and death. It was overcrowded, offering only rotted food and essentially no medical attention. Here, a possible sentence of a slow death was guaranteed when (unfortunately) caught stealing a loaf of bread. This dark and sordid history is strongly believed to harbor the spirits of those who previously lived or worked here. Many have experienced being pushed outside when standing near the actual “Gates of Hell”. An eerie mist is seen now and then on the walkway to the second-floor cells. A visitor once saw a woman in a 19th-century attire believed to be Mary Morris, the matron. A little girl appears in the schoolroom, sometimes poking visitors in the thigh or pulling on their clothing. In addition, the jail actually embellishes its morbid and ghostly reputation. Many of the cells are occupied by life-size waxworks of prisoners, rebels, thieves, and murderers, offering haunted tours for those seeking a stirring thrill. The Wicklow Gaol was featured in 2018’s “World’s Largest Ghost Hunt” (http://www.nationalghosthuntingday.com/), investigated with the talents of the Truthseekers Paranormal Ireland. In addition, the property also appeared in SyFy Channel's Ghost Hunters International. Want to visit haunted Ireland for Halloween in 2020?
