My granddad died around the end of March and my granny died 20 days later. 2 weeks after my granddad died (a week before my granny died); I woke up to footsteps beside my bed. Thinking it was my mum in my room I asked wha...

Not A Skeptic Anymore by Flamex

My best friend (I'll just call her Laura) always came up with an excuse for everything that happened to me or my family. In the end I wished something would happen to make her believe me. A week or two ago she was staying in my place overnight. That evening we were sitting on my floor watching vi...

These are some experiences my granny and her family had years ago when she was young. My granny told me these only a few months before she died. Haunted House on Moore Street Around the time of the 1916 Uprising my granny's mum (my great granny who lived here for a while) used to live in a hou...

What Should I Do? by cloudstrife

Hey guys, Cloud here this is my first story so I'm new to this. Well I was sitting in the sitting room of my house. It's a fairly new house and there were no tenants before us but when we moved in it was very gloomy. Apart from the fact that I didn't want to move I still felt very uneasy in this ...

Friends Fairwell by Irishlasie

I'm new to this website and first of all I'd like to say it's great. I have told you I have had a scary experience. This is some what different; this was the most beautiful thing that's ever happened to me. A few years ago, a childhood friend passed away. Lord have Mercy on his soul... I hadn't se...

I Was Abused By A Ghost by Irishlasie

Anyone that reads this might think I'm a bit soft in the head. But this is my story and it's undoubtedly 100% true. About three years ago, I was still living in my ma's house at this stage, in the wee hours of the morning I got the worst wakeup call ever, something had my arms and my legs pinned...

Ghost Story Becomes Real by tonyD

This is still hard for me to believe but I'll try to explain this the best I can... I work as a security officer for a company here in Ireland, and often get sent to different places to work. On this occasion I was working at a wind farm in the middle of nowhere all by myself... It wasn't all tha...

Ghost From My Army Days by moonshadow

To tell this story I will have to tell you a few things about where I was based during my 9 years Irish army service. First of all I was based in a military camp in Donegal Ireland. The accommodation was long wooden cabins divided in the middle by a partition and another door at the partition leadin...

Unusual Experience by irish-guy

I'm a 1st time user of this type of site and to be quiet honest, I thought I'd never be posting or visiting this type of site because before the last couple of months of my life, I didn't believe 100% ghosts/spirits didn't really exist. I'll take you back a couple of months before my experience... I...

House Upon The Gallows by sameeca

If you have read my previous post, you will know that I used to live in an old fisherman's cottage, which I thought was haunted. My family moved from there in October 2002 from the beach to the town. It is in a housing estate, on a hill on the outside of the small town. It is about ten years old, wi...

The Watching Woman by sameeca

I have had quite a few weird experiences over the years; I don't know why as I don't think I am particularly psychic. What is strange is that it has only happened since I moved to Ireland... And it's in every place that I have lived in since. These are some events that happened in my first house in ...

Shadows In The Graveyard by moonshadow

This event took place when I was a young teenager an actor had died who acted on a long running drama on Irish television a drama that I very rarely missed so I decided to go to the funeral and I had found out which graveyard in Dublin he was being buried in.

Children Playing In School Yard by moonshadow

This happened to me in the early 80s in Dublin Ireland where I am from. I used to often stay in a friends apartment about a mile from the city centre. The apartment was in an old building converted into apartments and he lived on the top floor. His bedroom was fairly big and had two beds he slept be...

Children At The Door And On The Bed by galway_girl88

This experience happened to me several years ago, probably when I was 7 or 8.My sister and I had been sharing a room at this time and my uncle had just committed suicide.

A Fright I Won't Forget by DunBreen

My girlfriend and I were sleeping the other night. My girlfriend is prone to nightmares, however usually when I tell her its ok it was a dream she drifts back to sleep. However the other night was very different. I was awoken by a really loud scream coming from my girlfriend, as I could see her sitt...

Poltergeist? by waterLily

When I was a teenager, my mates and I used to hang out a lot at the home of one of our friends. She had explained to us previously about several odd goings on that took place in her house, involving all her family. Although I never doubted anything that had happened there, I wasn't spooked as I hadn...

Uncomfortable Presence In A Family Home by waterLily

My experiences in the house I spent much of my childhood tended to be mostly uncomfortable, and I've wondered did my family and I just develop a coping mechanism to deal with the constant presence (and a relatively unhappy presence) that was always hanging around. We moved into a new home when I w...

Ruined Church & Dogs At Night by Donal

Given the geography, this MAY be connected to my previous story. It also sounds like the plot from a bad horror film, I apologise for that. But it happened. About ten minutes away from my house (on foot) there is an old, ruined church. It's in the middle of someone's field, its private property. ...

Sleeping Trouble And Sightings by senzubean

Basically my story is when I'm going asleep I think I'm being haunted... Yey! When I was younger (now I can't actually remember this) my mum told me that I had said I saw a little girl in a white dress... Yes sounds very Clio-she doesn't it. Well that's what I saw I thought that it was my childis...

The Chilly Room by Donal

This is a fairly long story, so bear with me. I grew up in the middle of nowhere. Nothing but miles and miles of miles and miles, for miles around. There're all kinds of stories about the area, though. Never heard any of them until recently. Stuff about giant black dogs, and a witch's grave. I...

A Strange Wire In The Graveyard by MrZach

This is my first post on this website. I'm a believer in the paranormal (obviously) although I haven't had any huge experiences myself. I've had a few minor ones and this one is one of them. My experience took place a day ago. I've been living in Galway, Ireland on a foreign studies type thing. ...

It Has All Changed by wicca

I recently told you all about my life in my true life experiences called "Strange things all my life", I received a lot of lovely comments but I never thought my own brother read it? I always thought he didn't believe in such things but he had his own strange story to tell me? For most of his li...

Is It My Great Granny? by Flamex

My friend posted the last story as Flamex. We live in separate countries so before anyone comments, I don't think anything could be following both of us or anything like that. All the events that took place happened in my granny's and granddad's house last year. Here is my story. My great gran...

The Ghost In The 6th Year Corridor by ArmchairPsychologist

Here is a story told to me by my school's 6th year form master. First I'll give the background - my school is very old (going back to the 1800s), and in it's time, it has quite a bit of history. For obvious reasons, I can't mention my schools name, but for the purposes of the story, I'll assume w...

Strange Things All My Life by wicca

Since I was little I've always seen strange things. When I was little I must have been about 5 or 6, I Thought my mother couldn't sleep and it was her walking up and down the stairs but when I went to look it was a tall woman in a long white nightgown with long black hair. She saw me and brought m...

The Box And The Quilt by AussieRedDog

*Waving his paws at everyone* I know I promised you my granny's stories but here's one from my family's experience. It happened to my sister, her husband, and again, my brother, G. G is now, by this stage, in his mid 20's and living with my sister and her husband (who also got a great spine tingling...

Vanishing House Of Windy Willows by AussieRedDog

Back again! This is not my story but one of my brothers' experiences. It has to be one of the strangest stories that stuck in my mind for years. I'm not revealing my brother's real name so we'll just call him G and my other brother E (both older than me so I wasn't even thought of when this happened...

The Gateway To Tir-na-nog by AussieRedDog

It was my first trip overseas in 1994, back to my homeland of Ireland where I was born but I was brought up in Australia. Ireland, the mystic place of fairies, poets, and ancient heroes... And the supernatural. I stayed with my sister in West Cork in a lovely little stone cottage with a stunning...

Unexplained Breathing Sounds by Domino

I wonder how the account of what I have experienced will compare to the other stories on this site. In comparison, it probably lacks both novelty and an element of drama. But I would still love to get some ideas from you, the readers. There seems to be few other opportunities around for presenting y...

Did The Orbs Play A Part? by Domka

I was at my Cousins 18th birthday party. Me and my two best friends (one of them is 18 and other is 15) were the first to arrive at her house. We had few beers. Then later I was looking at the table and I saw what looked like an orb. I just thought there was something wrong with my eyes. Then I pick...

The Attack On Vacation - The Scariest Experience Ever by shawnxmonkey

It was the vacation of a lifetime-just my best friend Nicole and I going away to Ireland. I was very excited as we were going to stay in a famous castle, which of course had some history of its own. I believe it was Cabra castle of something to that effect. I recall it as it was yesterday. We we...

Dark Figure And Strange Happenings by Smabk08

My experiences began happening about 4 years ago. Firstly, in my parents house, then in the house I am currently living in. I am renting and sharing with 3 other girls. My bedroom at home (in my parents' house) has always been a cold room. Everybody says it's the coldest in the house. The house ...

Pink Writing Over The Toilet Door by vlyons

I moved house a month ago into rented accommodation. During the night last night my daughter who is 12 came into me in a panic saying that there was writing on the toilet wall, half asleep I just told her to get into my bed as I was in a deep sleep. This morning, when she woke up she told me to ...

My Macabre Pursuer by niallacaldwell

I am taking a new angle with the choosing of this story. In my previous entries, I focused on incidents which where pleasant and showed the love and contentment with the subject spirits, but in this story, the spirit in question was of a more malevolent substance. This is taken from my own memory. ...

My Grandparents Final Visit, After Their Own Funeral by niallacaldwell

This account was partially extruded from an entry written in my mother's diary in 1973 when my mother was 14 years of age. It was her sixth entry to do with the paranormal in her expansive collection of macabre recollections. Some of this is also taken from the less well preserved depths of my own m...

Old Spectre In Ballycastle Bay by niallacaldwell

I have previously submitted other stories under the username of "Niall!" on this website until I forgot my password and made a new account so some of you may remember my other stories. I live in a small seaside town called Ballycastle in Northern Ireland. We moved house from Belfast to here six y...

My Grandmother's Story by phantomz

I would like to begin by saying that I haven't had as many experiences as a lot of people have had on this site. However the experiences I did have I think are quite strange but in no way terrifying or evil. Also, the story I am about to tell isn't really my story it happened to my mother, grandm...

The Faceless Man in the Mountains by Dena90

This next event is one that I am putting on the site for a friend as he would love to know if anyone has an opinion about it or can explain it. Any comments are welcome. I am telling it from his perspective. This happened about 18 years ago. A friend and I were going to a new nightclub up the Dub...

The Hooded Figure by Dena90

Firstly I want to introduce myself as I am new to the site. I'm Dena, I'm from Dublin Ireland and I work in administration. I have a few stories and I'd love to hear any feedback and I check my comments everyday. My story begins when I was 9. My mom and I were going to Wexford (Ireland) to visit ...

Night Attacks by alcapone

I am not religious but believe in good and bad. I also know if something attacks I have got no faith to protect myself. I do realize that this is a problem but can't put my faith into either side. My problem is I have been having dreams where someone or something is using me for sex. At first I ...

Ghosts In Garron Tower by Niall

This experience is very recent and most details of the spirit's appearances were unfamiliar to me, making description difficult. I have not been able to narrate any of my gripping tails of paranormal adventure in a long while because of the awful reality of end of year exams in my school. I menti...

A Weird Vacation Picture by JerseyGirl

As I mentioned in my previous posting, last month a friend and I took a trip to Ireland. Both of us took many pictures in the ten days we were there. About two weeks ago my friend was visiting with me, and we decided to look at the pictures in my camera on the TV. My friend likes to "zoom in" on the...

A Message on the Car Radio by JerseyGirl

This story is in two parts; the first part took place in New York City shortly after my boyfriend died. Of course I was devastated when this happened. He was to be buried in his native Ireland, but on the day of his funeral in Ireland they had a memorial Mass for him at his parish in Queens. My boyf...

The Spirit in my Home by Niall

This story is a collection of memories from my mother and some of my own experiences, all have been recorded straight after they happened so this is an accurate account. I shall begin by explaining the history of the house. I used to live in a house in Divis Drive, Belfast in N. Ireland. The house i...

Spirit with a Motherly Attitude in County Sligo by Niall

This account is taken from my mother's diary where she recorded many paranormal experiences through her life. This is an accurate account. On the 11th May 1971 my mother was staying at her aunt's house in County Sligo with her toddler sister. This was my mother's birthday. Before I begin to narrate ...

Ghost Cottages in Belfast by Niall

My mother experienced this event when she was 14 years of age and she wrote it in her diary the same day as it occurred so this is an accurate account. On St James' street in Belfast, N.Ireland on 14th June 1970 at approximately 2pm my mother and her sister boarded a bus which followed a route from ...

A Whisper in my Ear by mauzie

I have to begin by saying that I am, I guess, confused, on the whole issue of the existence of ghosts or spirits. I am not necessarily a "believer" but I also am not narrow-minded, and who understands everything about life, while we are living or dead? It seems possible if not probable that when we ...

A Forgotten Soul, and the Coshta Bower by alanon80

Let's not beat around the bush, some stories should not be told. In this case I'm not telling it, just simply writing it. I'm not saying that it's going to be scary or sinister. It won't change the mind of any skeptic, just solidify their ideas and dogmas. But ha, I'm not here to change anyone's min...

A Dying Language Saved Me by alanon80

I'm happy with the response to my other stories, yet it must be said that it hasn't been all bad with me, some encounters have just been, well, miraculous. But before I go on, I'd like to thank all those who have left me comments. I will get back to you all shortly, probably through the site or via ...

Third Time, Not Good Company by alanon80

Here is the final chapter in this story. If you've read First Time Experience and Second Encounter with the Same Entity you're up to date. This story ended after I saw him for the third time. I would guess it's because his hold on me got weaker, or maybe he stretched himself too thin reaching me for...

Second Encounter with the Same Entity by alanon80

As most of you have read already, I had my first encounter with a spirit (of malice as far as I'm concerned) when I was 8. Also I said that he appeared to me twice more. This story is the second time. A decade from my first experience I worked in a petrol station on the north circular road. My shift...

First Time Experience by alanon80

It is popular belief that 13 is an unlucky number, well for me it is 8. 8 years old, just made a real best friend. I'm the winner of almost every squares game (its an irish game, but won't go into the rules. Yet if you're interested ask me and I'll tell you). Life was great, I wasn't wasting a mi...

The Girl in the White Dress by charmingangie

When I was young, my aunt (who first introduced me to the world of the paranormal), always said to me that I had a gift. While my mother was pregnant with me, my father had built our house that we now live in. Previously, there had been an old house that had been knocked down to make way for a safer...

Ghost Boy by 4u_allie

You probably have read my story: My Gift. This one goes along with it. Last night, I communicated with my ghost friend. I wanted to find out what kind of help he needed. Most ghost stay for a need, so I wanted to help him. Twas frightening at first. I went down to the family living room, knowing...

My Gift by 4u_allie

Firstly, I want to let everyone know that when these happen, I was not imagining. And I'm not bluffing. It started a couple of years ago after my Grandfather's house was burned down. Strange images kept coming into my head when I awoke, or walking around my house, or when I had nothing to do. I kept...

An Orb Floating Above my Grandmother's Headstone by 4u_allie

It was March 3rd, 2007. Me and my family where at my grandmother's tomb on her memorial day. It was a sad day. We sang the songs she wrote in her journal. I took a picture of her tomb, and a strange light of ball appeared floating near it on the photo on my camera. Their was nothing their before I t...

The Ireland Haunted House by 4u_allie

The school bus picked me every morning at the side road that led up to my aunt's house, and every afternoon it dropped me there again. And so twice a day, on the bus, I passed the entrance to the mysterious road. It wasn't much of a road any more. It was choked with weeds and blackberry bushes, and ...

Writing on the Wall by sarahk

This is my story that has happened three weeks ago from this day, I have never found any answers to this and I have left my home due to this incident. Myself and my fiance's house was a semi detached house based in a good area of dublin ireland. We had lived at this address for one year and were qui...

Haunted Castle Leslie by BellaMorte

I am 26 years old now and this incident happened on the night of my 20th birthday, in Castle Leslie, Glaslough, County Monaghan, Ireland. At the time this happened, Castle Leslie was a small hotel featuring, I believe, eight bedrooms. Each room had a theme and was decorated accordingly. Our room for...

Belfast Orbs by lian01

I know, I know... Orb photos! Not always the best example of ghost photography, is it dust? Is it light? Or an apparition? Who knows. All I know is I recently went to Belfast and when I looked at the photos I took, all 7 of them, I found 3 interesting pictures. I'll give you a bit of background then...

Fear of the Unknown by lynfanning

My mum's sister, who was called Jeannie, always used to tell my cousin and I ghost stories when we were little. The thing was they weren't made up, they were real.

Message from Mum by tresco_el

There were ten of us in our family - five girls, three boys and my parents. Four girls came first, followed by one boy, then myself, with my two younger brothers following after. William, the second youngest, was born in 1980, three months premature. My mother had a fall, which brought on premature ...

Reassurance from Mum by tresco_el

I never really knew my mother. She died when I was eleven. Having four older teenage sisters, my mother was more concerned with them and their teenage issues than my three brothers and I, so I never really got to spend much time with her. As a result we don't have many memories of her. She was di...

Growling and the Rosary Prayer by sarah

The story I am about to unfold occurred in November 2005. It was just a normal Friday night. As I had planned to meet friends the following evening, I spent the night at home watching T.V. and in general just relaxing. About midnight, I decided to go to bed. On this particular evening just my father...

That Wasn't Me by Kirby

This happened to my mom. My mom (her name is Penny) was downstairs chopping lettuce or something, getting ready for dinner. She noticed how cold it was getting in the house, and asked me to turn on the fire. The fire flickered on and she said her thanks. My mom continued getting dinner ready when sh...

A Message to my Mother by Buttons4me

One night, me and my mom were talking about ghosts, and whether or not she believes in them. She told me this story. Years and years ago, when I was very little, my mom and dad didn't get on very well, mostly because his mother didn't approve of her. One day, my mom couldn't find my father anywhere,...

New House Apparition by Buttons4me

Me and my family recently moved, it was just the day before christmas eve in 2006. I have finally moved out of that house where I saw my brother's guardian, and where I saw other strange things or should I say, heard. What happened isn't at all an over the top phenomenon, but it really scared me any...

The Little Girl in the Window by Buttons4me

I was about 13 or 14, and yes odd stuff always happens to me. No one in my family believe in ghosts at all. I went to stay in my cousin's house for two nights, her birthday party was the day after the first night there. Her house was very old, cold, and it was built in the late 19th century. However...

The Irish Holiday Ghost by Buttons4me

Just 3 years ago, in 2004, me and my family went on a two weeks holiday to the Holiday center in Cork. Anyone from Ireland will know Trabolgan, the holiday center. We arrived there, and our little cottage-like house we had to stay in wasn't cleaned at all properly from the maids and it looked like a...

My Little Brother's Guardian by Orla

This happened in the summer of 2006. It was during the day, I'd say around 3:35pm at least, I'm guessing. The sun was out, and there was a lot of traffic and kids playing around outside. My little brother had a few friends over to play. My mom was busy talking to some of the neighbors, and my dad wa...
