He has been called “one of the greatest of Irish story-tellers and “a national treasure”. He is particularly well known for his tales of Irish folk heroes, fairies, fallen angels, and other supernatural beings as recorded in Irish mythology, folklore and oral history.

  • When buying tickets above for Fright Night please select a departure time.

    The tale of one of Tarbert’s most distinguished sons is one of triumph and tragedy set at the turn of the 17th Century. Starting at Tarbert Bridewell, we are going to bring you on a frighteningly vivid journey into the dark woods where Viscount Clare lived over 3 centuries ago, and through multimedia installations and live actors we will explore his extraordinary life story as it moves from Tarbert to his flight as one of the Wild Geese, all the way to his death on the battlefields of Belgium…and if you’re lucky, you’ll get to meet his ghost, who is said to walk these very woods every November.

    This event will require you to bring a flashlight and wear walking boots or wellies and a warm coat – there will be muddy sections in the woods and it will be cold. There will be loud audio, so please be aware that this event is not for the faint-hearted nor suitable for children under 13.
