Kullua Castle - Haunted History

Kullua Castle

Clonmellon, Westmeath

Killua Castle is situated near Clonmellon and was built in about 1780 by Sir Benjamin Chapman in 9,000 acres of surrounding farmland. The building is now in ruinous condition, but was partially renovated in 2006.

The last Chapman to live in the castle was Thomas Chapman who left his wife and family in Westmeath and moved to England, but one previous resident is said to have stayed behind to haunt the castle. The castle's grounds are said to be haunted by a former land owner who is said to have cheated Chapman out of his money, before drowning in a nearby lake.
