Haunted ~Cairndhu House ~ Larne~ County Antrim~Northern Ireland

Reportedly one of Northern Ireland’s most haunted houses, Cairndhu has a rich history of grandeur and ruin.
Originally built as a grand summer residence in 1875 Cairndhu House now lies in extreme disrepair and has been the site of numerous reported ghost sightings.
Located off the Coast road in Carnfunnock Country park, the hidden mansion has laid empty for decades. Throughout its long history it has been a stately home for a wealthy Scottish industrialist, a military hospital, a convalescent home and most recently a film location. There have been numerous reports of paranormal activity over the years from ghosts appearing in windows to unexplained noises heard by caretakers.

Much of its original grandeur has been lost through time. The house was closed by the Department of Health in 1986 and since then has been left to fall into ruin and ravaged by the elements creating its spooky and Gothic appearance.
Hopefully some good news for this “at risk” building ..
May 2018 a public consultation was held over plans to develop the site of the derelict mansion Cairndhu House outside Larne into ‘retirement village’ facilities a 80-bedroom nursing home..

The boarded-up building, with a roof that has been stripped of its lead, is the former home of Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon. During the Second World War, it was visited by the future Queen and her sister, Princess Margaret.

Nowadays, it’s a vandalised shambles, but Paranormal Ulster has called it “Northern Ireland’s most haunted house”.

Rebecca concurs “When I was at Cairndhu, there was a big, loud crash in one of the rooms,” she says. “We froze and then we heard footsteps, but there was no one else there.

“My companion was a sceptic, but he wasn’t a sceptic after that. Neither of us could explain it.”
