Dark Alley – the quaint tunnel of Ireland

Dark Alley – a popular natural landmark of Ireland, known far beyond its borders. Freakish trees grow near the village of Armoy in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The tunnel is known as one of the most mystical and mysterious wonders of nature, shrouded in legends and incredible stories for centuries.

In different seasons and different times, this forest seems to be completely different. In the sunshine, in the fog or in the evening twilight, the Dark Alley have an indelible impression. Photographers from all over the world come here for amazing shots. A tunnel of trees appeared on the side of Brigade Road in the 18th century thanks to the efforts of the family of Stuarts who lived in this area. Then nothing foretold that the trees could grow together in such a beautiful tunnel. Many claim that they have mystical powers.

Locals love to tell legends about this place. They do it with such excitement and trepidation that it captures the breath. This is a story about the spirit of an unfamiliar woman who often appears in and around the tunnel. During Halloween, she is surrounded by the souls of dead people. This ghost was called “Gray Lady”. It is believed that this is the spirit of the maid, stolen from the house of Stuarts. Rumor has it that she died under mysterious circumstances. Night walks of the ghostly creatures along the Dark Alley give the place a strange and frightening glory. In the afternoon, when the rays of the sun make their way through the branches, the alley does not cast dark thoughts, but in the twilight you perceive it differently. And then the dark tunnel fully justifies its name.

For fans of the series “Game of Thrones” is to add that some scenes were filmed right here in the “Dark Avenues”. Thousands of people come here to see with their own eyes the eerie beauty of the incredible beech path, or test their nerves for strength after dark. This place can be safely included in the list of surrealistic landscapes of the Earth, along with the Tunnel of Love in Klevan.
