Ducketts Grove Castle. (The Banshee's Tower). County Carlow, Ireland.

As a lover of Irish folklore and ghost stories I sought out this castle on my last visit to Ireland in 2016. As it happened I had the castle all to myself. Ducketts Grove Castle has the reputation of being haunted which includes a Banshee that is believed to inhabit this tower.
