Malahide Castle: The Ghostly Gathering

I think I mentioned in my previous post that Malahide is my favorite town in Dublin. Why? First it is located near the beach. Second, you can see plenty of beautiful spots around the area. And third, it's so peaceful there.

Malahide Castle

One of the amazing spot that you should not miss when you're in town is the Malahide Castle. It has so much to offer. It is one the oldest castles around Ireland.  

Malahide Castle was the home of Talbot family for about 800 years. The history of people who lived there are highly emphasized through the paintings around the wall of the castle. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed so I won't be able to show you the amazing style, architecture and decorations inside the castle. 

They said there are five ghosts who reside in the castle. Scary? You can go there this October 30 and 31 for "the ghostly gathering" to experience it yourself. It is a tour specifically telling stories about the ghosts of the castle. There are other fun activities like face painting and special halloween movie. All that for €12 per adult and € 6 per child. Family ticket is also available for €26 (2 adults and up to 3 children). The gathering will start from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm with ghostly tours every 30 minutes. 

Do you want to meet the ghosts of Malahide Castle? Come and don't miss the spooky day. 


  1. Very familiar ang castle na ito. I have written kasi an article about famous castles.

  2. Five years from now, a friend and I promised each other that we will tour the UK - all the literati houses first then the castles, I'll list Malahide now. :)

  3. My husband would love those kind of ghost tours. We had a couple ghost tours and we love it, The story is interesting.

  4. This castle looks creepy but i love it. It reminds me of Casa Loma Castle in Canada. I have so much admiration about old Castle they are nice outside but looks creepy inside.

  5. oh...might not going there during spooky days i would rather not see a ghost lol.

  6. At least you've got a beautiful photo of its facade. I am curious why it is called The Ghostly Gathering?

  7. Wow! What a beautiful castle! Someday, I want to take my family and visit some of those landmarks in UK.

  8. Majestic castle! And I wanna learn more about the history of the castle and its inhabitants before. :D

  9. I want to meet a ghost if he’s friendly or cute :P I always dream to visit a castle. I hope someday, I’ll be able to.

  10. When you went inside sis, did you ever have an eerie feeling like there is a ghost around?

  11. Now, can't help but dream that I am in Malahide Castle.

  12. I don't want to meet the ghosts of Malahide Castle but I certainly want to visit that place and have a picnic! ^_^

Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives.  Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside.  Colosseum admission fee: Full ticket - €18.00 EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25)  EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18) Opening hours: Mid February - mid March: 9 AM - 4.30 PM Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM End March - end August: 9 AM - 7.00 PM

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in

House as Clean as a Hound's Tooth

Modern cleaning products contain harmful ingredients. Anyone in contact with these products can be affected rendering health problems like irritations, allergies or even respiratory illnesses. It cannot be denied that  household cleaners  available in the market will give us outstanding results. But, are they truly safe for us to use? Be extra careful in choosing cleaning goods. Loads of toxic ingredients might be in the formulation and just waiting to attack. Toilet bowl cleaner for example has chlorinated phenol that are harmful in respiratory and circulatory system.

Deodorizers has formaldehyde, which is a respiratory irritant and probable human carcinogen under conditions of unusually high or prolonged exposure.
