The Abhartach -- Vampyre King of Ireland

Centuries ago, in a village in Ireland, King Abhartach died suddenly while trying to catch his wife in an act of infidelity. With his dying breath he demanded his wife’s blood for her deception. He was quickly buried, but on the next night, he mysteriously appeared at his wife’s door demanding a bowl of blood from her wrists. When he was denied, he ripped her wrists with his sharp teeth and took it by force. As. the sun rose, he mysteriously died and was once again buried, but every night at dusk, he once again appeared at the door of an unfaithful villager demanding his bowl of blood. Legend has it, that the villagers grew weary of the king’s murderous nightly visits and secretly sent him on a ship to America, where he has fed ever since. No one knows when King Abhartach will show up at your door…but, when he does, will you be prepared, or will you become just another bowl of blood?

The tours are conducted using professional ghost hunting equipment, which allows you to see fit yourself, the presence of spirit activity. The tours are private, with small groups, and guaranteed to be a unique experience! You will be required to sign a liability waiver before entering the hotel. For more info, contact us through messenger.
This attraction is not recommended for young children.

Having a psychic reading done can be fun and exciting and can reveal a lot about yourself. Your private reading will be performed by one of our natural born experienced psychic mediums here at the historic Garrett Hotel. All of our psychics have natural abilities to communicate with spirits and spiritual guides from the other side, many of which have specific messages and validating information to communicate to our clients. Find out what messages the spirits have for you!
