Murder Mystery Night at Killeavy Castle


Join us on Monday, 30 October, to uncover the truth in this Murder Mystery Night set within Killeavy Castle. Guests will enjoy an evening of exquisite dining coupled with some interactive live theatre from the team of actors at PlayDeadNI.

…It is the early 1900s and everyone has gathered for THE WAKE to mourn the passing of local businesswoman Miss Dorothy Anderson. Her fiancé, Mr John Ritchie, is receiving condolences on this sombre occasion. However, things take a dark turn when a brutal murder occurs…

The actors' team acts out THE WAKE story between dining courses. Guests will take in the role of detective and try to solve the case throughout the evening by gathering evidence and questioning suspects.

Arrive at 6:30pm to Killeavy Castle for a drinks reception served with canapés and meet your fellow detectives.

At 7:00pm all guests are called to be seated for a delightful 3-course meal served with wine. Before the first course is served, all will be explained as to how the evening's events will unfold. As the evening progresses, you and your fellow guests can pick up clues to establish a motive and solve this murder mystery. The conclusion and reveal will happen after dessert, and a special prize will be presented to the guest who plays the best detective by uncovering the truth behind this mysterious murder.

A special Bed and Breakfast rate of £170 per couple is available to stay overnight in the hotel. To avail of this offer email:
