Leap Castle – Ten Most Haunted Places
Located in Northern Ireland this castle has been the site of many strange happenings. Built in about 1250, the castle’s purpose was to guard the pass from Slieve Bloom to Munster. Its history is riddled with tales of battles, torture and horror.
One of the most disturbing things about this castle was the discovery of an oubliette. A pit with a large spike at the bottom. Prisoners who were cast into the pit were either impaled on the spike or left to starve at the bottom. When workmen began clearing the pit is took three carts to remove all the human bones within the chamber.

Locals have seen strange lights coming from the empty castle for years. Now under restoration the new family claims to have experienced a number of strange happenings as well.
