BUILT: c. 1300s

The Black Death Hospital in Roscrea, Ireland is reputed as being one of the most haunted hospitals in the world. It was used as a children’s hospital for those suffering from the “black death”, or the bubonic plague. Several years ago, construction workers were digging around sewer pipes when they were surprised to find the bones of nearly fifty children. Locals refuse to visit the hospital at night, claiming that the ghosts of the children will lure you to your death to join them.

      I’m not exactly sure where the Black Death Hospital is located. Apologies for the late response. Since you haven’t made your email public, people that may know the answer are unable to send it to you.
