The recent announcement by the New York Times that County Derry is one of the best places in the world to celebrate Hallowe'en is testament to how much we love the scary stuff.

There's also a long history of paranormal weirdness going on at Hellfire Club in the Dublin Mountains, as well as the Wicklow Gaol, both of which are infamous for being genuinely creepy places to be.

However, in terms of Ireland as a whole, where should budding paranormal investigators be heading?

According to Irish Ghost Hunters chief Tim Kelly, none other than County Offaly the most haunted place in Ireland, it is also one of the most haunted places in all of Europe.

He told the Irish Mirror: "There’s no doubt in my mind County Offaly is the most haunted in Ireland. Over the years we’ve conducted hundreds and hundreds of investigations and there’s something about it, particularly the energy around that haunted triangle."

The haunted triangle is made up of three ancient castles in Kinnitty, Leap and Charleville, and the area in between them is essentially some kind of spooky Irish Bermuda triangle.

Except instead of planes and boats going missing, it is your once-clean underwear that disappears completely.
