Spooky goings on this Halloween at Cuskinny Court
There are some strange goings on in Cuskinny Court, near Cobh in East Cork as Halloween approaches.
Residents in have reported strange sightings of dancing skeletons, green bonfires, witches and werewolves in. The strange happenings seem to radiate from a great Georgian home now known as Ghoulsley’s Manor. It is believed that the house is to become the home of the spooky characters of All Hallows from 21 to 31October 2016.
Last year Lord Ghoulsley invited children to visit his Halloween experience to meet some of his ghoulish friends and enjoy their fiendish theatrics. However, this year Ghoulsley’s Manor has expanded its immersive experience, increasing the number of creatures haunting the house, and offering lots more spooky but hilarious antics for children of all ages.
“This year Lord Ghoulsley has welcomed several new fiendish friends to his mystical and magical world here in Cuskinny, and they seem to be having frightful fun here in Cork,” said Caitriona Johansson of Cuskinny Court.
“Dead Sheeran, the Ghoulsley Werewolf, Circus Ringmaster and Wanda Witch are looking forward to hosting younger children up to 8 years old on the ‘Spookaloo’ interactive tour, while those braver ones can enjoy the ‘After Dark’ experience which takes a detour through the haunted woods!”
Up to 40 locals have been employed by the ghoulish creatures at Ghoulsley’s Manor, with screenwriters, musicians, theatrical performances and directors provided exclusively by the talented people of East Cork. Ghoulsley’s Manor is open daily from 21 October until 31 October when the spell of Halloween will be broken and all Halloween creatures disappear into the thin Cork air.
Cuskinny Court and Estate was originally the home of The Landlord of Ballymore, Sir John Charles Jackson Bennett, and sits on 17 acres of estate. In 2010, the Cuskinny Court Eco Adventure was opened on the estate, providing outdoor activities for schools, scouting and youth groups as well as corporates.
In recent years, Santa Claus chose to locate “The Cork North Pole Outpost Experience” at Cuskinny near Cobh on Cork’s Great Island, and this has proved hugely popular with children in the region. This is the second year that the Cuskinny Court has been invaded by ghoulish creatures and transformed into “Lord Ghoulsley’s Manor” and it’s sure to prove fun for all the family.
