Nice collection of ghost stories told in a fairly conversational tone (perhaps a more accurate title would be "Irish Anecdotes of the Supernatural"?) A very enjoyable read.

It is interesting to read how ghost hunters and researchers of the last century and a half plied their trade. Healthy dose of skepticism and debunking thrown in to maintain balance

Its a fun read. I really kinda want to visit these places but the auther is very careful about not revealing the exact whereabouts of these plases.

I thought this would be a good book. It started off ok i guess but then became very dry... didnt like the fact names werent used... mrs B. Or mr. B--- it was stupid. This made it hard to get into the book.... all and all if i could go back i wish i hadnt got this book... had to force myself to finish it.... was soooo slow and some of the storys after a while just seemed to repeat.... didnt like at all....
