Leap Castle and the Bloody Chapel
Leap Castle is a bucket list location that I only dreamed about visiting for many years. I was blessed and fortunate enough to be able to visit the castle (thanks to my friend Jackie) back in 2014 and I would go for a return visit in a heartbeat.
Leap Castle is believed to have been built in the 1500’s by the O’Bannon Clan. Inhabited by different clans over the years, the castle has been the site of war, bloodshed and carnage, was seized by Cromwell in 1642, and later was burned down to its shell in 1922. Thankfully this beautiful and yet notorious castle is being restored, most recently by the Ryans. Some people believe Leap Castle is the most haunted castle in the world. Is it? You need to visit and then decide!
