Photographs: Return to the Hellfire Club, Dublin

The Hellfire Club, Dublin
We’ve written loads about the Irish Hellfire Club on blather.net, of ghosts and black cats and satanism… But now we’ve got photographs too….

The Blather team keep returning to this spooky place in the Dublin mountains. On Halloween 2005 I returned, with great light and a beautiful sky. I’m not going to go on at length here about satanic orgies or ghosts or giant black cats – I’ll point you to my earlier articles on the Hellfire Club for that.

    Rave at the Hellfire?! Hate to be the poor sod who has to lug generators up that hill!!

  4. Thanks for the photos. I grew up in Ballyer in the early fifty’s and I could see the Hell Fire Club from my bedroom window. That was before they built all the factories in the fields behind Landen Road. It was great to be able to see so far and you could just make out the Hell Fire Club. It was a real place to me as a kid even though I can’t remember ever going up there.

  9. Saw a video of Steed and Piel of the famed Avengers. There was talk of a Hellfire Club. Interesting concept. Not much wrong in my eyes with a little debotchery. Saints all the time are boring. Ed

  10. I am an American of Irish heritage and I’ve just happened upon these pictures. I don’t know what it is but they almost brought tears to my eyes and made me ache to visit this place. I’ve never had any sort of paranormal experience and I can’t explain why I feel this way. Does anyone have an opinion?
