Book Haunted Inns and Hotels in County Clare

Fanny O'Deas

N68, Lissycasey Co. Clare, Ireland

This hostelry was famous for its whiskey egg-flips. The authorities granted a licence to sell alcohol on this merit. The establishment is not haunted in the strictest sense. However, it carries a taboo. The taboo pertains to the idea that as anyone passing the hostelry should call in to advert bad luck. This originates with a Kilrush man, who the authorities was due to hang. He refused to call in at the establishment that resulted in the authorities hanging him thirty minutes prematurely. In short, if he had called in then he could have received message of his pardon and would not have been subject to the deadly noose.
