As part of its residential Halloween package, the historic Cahernane House Hotel in Killarney, Co. Kerry will once again host a night of storytelling this Halloween with Eddie Lenihan, one of the few traditional seanchaí’s still working in Ireland. Eddie was a great hit with guests last Halloween and has been invited back to Cahernane this year to tell the residents ancient stories about the myths and legends of Irish folklore.

Irish Myths, Ghosts & Ghouls
Eddie Lenihan

Irish fairy stories form a prominent part of his huge repertoire, and he has collected these stories from old people all around Ireland who have had encounters with fairies or mythical creatures. He has also collected historical tales and stories of notable figures such as the banshee, demon stories, accounts of saints, monsters, ogres, giants, and ghosts. Some of the stories are not for the faint-hearted and were curated from his years of research and by walking the tracks and trails of forgotten Ireland where solitary hawthorn bushes mark the sacred meeting places of the fairies.

An interesting character, and an enthralling storyteller, Eddie has captured the imagination of audiences from Dublin to Dubai.  The storytelling evening is for residents only and is part of a two-night Halloween Break which includes other ‘not so scary’ activities for children!
