A property described as Ireland’s most haunted house has gone on sale.

Loftus Hall is a part-gothic, part-Palladian, 22-bedroom manor, situated on the Hook Peninsula in Wexford.

What’s more, the 27,124 sq ft estate features a private beach and 63 acres of land. 

It could all be yours if you’re willing to put up with some ghoulish characters and if you have a spare £2.5million lying round.

The Hall is also a tourist attraction, which hosts paranormal tours six days a week.

Perhaps the best-known ghost story from the property is the legend of the Devil’s visit. 

The story goes that a mysterious visitor came to the home in the mid 1700s, but one of the residents, Anne, developed a crush on the peculiar guest.

When they were playing cards one night she noticed he had hooves for feet, following that he combusted into flames and went through the roof.

After the encounter, Anne went mad and her family locked her away. She died a few years later and people have since claimed to have spotted her wandering through the house.

Over the years the property has had various uses, including a hotel, a convent and a private home.

Back in 2011, it was purchased by Aidan Quigley – who bought the home for around £566,428.12 (a quarter of the current asking price) before restoring it and opening it to the public for supernatural tours.

As for the sale itself, Aidan told Mansion Global that he won’t be hiring an estate agent – instead he will be interviewing potential buyers himself.

He said: ‘Loftus Hall is more than a house. It is a business, and we’ve invested so much in the brand, but it also allows people to buy into a part of history.’
