This video was taken in Ballygally castle Co.Antrim. You can see a part apparition moving slowly through the wall.

This huge castle was built in 1625 in the Northern part of Ireland. The most active ghost in residence is said to be one of the former lady’s of the house. It is said that Isobel Shaw wife of the lord of the castle kept her locked in her room. He also was said to be slowing starving her until she finally leapt from one of the windows.

Built in 1625, Ballygally Castle is one of the most haunted places in Northern Ireland. Overlooking the sea at the head of Ballygally Bay, it has been said that sometimes this hotel can have more ghosts than guests.

But the most active ghost is the playful former resident, Lady Isobel Shaw, who amuses herself by knocking at the doors of different rooms and then suddenly disappearing. When she was alive, Isobel was locked in her room and starved by her husband. She lept to her death from a window.
Madame Nixon is another ghost who lived in the hotel in the nineteenth century. She can be heard walking around the hotel in her silk dress.
