Business evening in Loftus Hall

By Esther Hayden

Over 80 brave Wexford businesses have already signed up to attend the spookiest Business After Hours networking event ever organised by Wexford Chamber in the infamous Loftus Hall this Thursday from 6pm.

Regarded as the most haunted house in Ireland, Loftus Hall is inviting local businesses to their 22 bedroom period mansion on the remote Hook Peninsula to enjoy a guided interactive tour of the abandoned haunted house and to absorb the dark and troubled history of Loftus spanning 850 years. An evening of fun, networking, light refreshments and a prize draw is promised.

Six lucky attendees will be chosen on the night to experience a teaser of the Paranormal Lockdown with the Lead Paranormal Investigators. Attendees will also have the opportunity to view the new Visitor Centre where they can discover more about the hall's bloodcurdling and fascinating heritage.

Built over the remains of Redmond Hall and home of the Redmond family since around 1350, the Hall became the property of the Loftus family in the 1650s and was renamed Loftus Hall. The building that exists today was heavily renovated between 1870 and 1879 by the 4th Marquess of Ely and was acquired by its current owners, the Quigley family from Carrig on Bannow in 2011.

Madeleine Quirke, CEO Wexford Chamber said: 'Aidan Quigley and his family are to be applauded on working so closely with tourism stakeholders to broaden the historical appeal not only of Loftus Hall but also of the Hook Peninsula and the South East region to visitors of all ages and interests. I would encourage businesses to join us on February 23rd to show their support and enjoy a networking event with a difference.'

Transport to and from Loftus Hall is kindly sponsored by Wexford Bus. The coach will depart from Redmond Square Wexford at 5pm sharp with the return trip leaving Loftus Hall at 8pm to Redmond Square. Pre-booking is essential as places are limited.
