About this Event

Montreal like you’ve never experienced it before…

Griffintown is one of Montreal’s most historic neighborhoods – and one of its most haunted. Featured on World’s Scariest Hauntings, the area has witnessed everything from dying Irish refugees during the Famine of 1847 to the Industrial Revolution to Montreal’s worst air disaster. Today, condominium towers are sprouting up in the Griff, but new residents are quickly learning that the district was once a rowdy shantytown – and it’s also ghost-ridden!

The Haunted Griffintown Ghost Walk visits mysterious ruins, a polluted canal, former burial grounds and creepy old buildings that are said to be haunted. A vacant, decrepit brewery hosts psychics in search of a murdered girl, a condominium reminds locals of its past as a chocolate factory, and the ghostly ruins of St. Ann’s Church sometimes produce paranormal activity.

Learn about Black ’47, when the area witnessed one of Canada’s worst tragedies, as tens of thousands of typhus-stricken Irish immigrants disembarked from “coffin ships” after crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Despite heroic efforts by nuns and Mayor John Mills to care for the sick in fever sheds, the disease killed over six thousand people, including the Mayor himself. Most of the dead were buried in nearby mass graves, only to be disturbed again and again by industrial activity.

Learn the conspiracy theory surrounding Montreal’s worst air disaster, when a Liberator Bomber slammed into the neighborhood, killing 15 people during WW II.

Finally, hear the deranged tale of Mary Gallagher, the headless prostitute. Montreal’s most infamous ghost story, she was murdered and decapitated by her best friend Susie Kennedy in 1879. The headless ghost of Mary Gallagher is said to return to the Griff every seven years, still searching for her head.

Led by a professional actor and storyteller, this ghost tour is sure to please ghost hunters, history buffs and Hallowe’en lovers with its creepy tales of the spirits and paranormal activity infesting and haunting Griffintown.

The Ghost Walk begins at 8:30 pm at the Rockaberry Café at (1380 Notre-Dame Street Ouest, a few blocks south of Lucien L’Allier Metro). Book your tickets below.

Please be ready to depart from the Rockaberry Café at least 10 minutes before the tour starts. The Haunted Griffintown Ghost Walk takes approximately 90 minutes and involves strolling through the Griff.

For guests wishing to have dinner or coffee and dessert before the tour starts, the Rockaberry Café comes highly recommended. Serving some of the best cake and coffee in Montreal, this café also has an excellent dinner menu. For those who wish to partake, Haunted Montreal advises clients to arrive at the Rockaberry Café at least 45 minutes before the tour starts. Otherwise, please meet your guide outside the café at least 10 minutes before the tour starts.

Please Note: We reserve the right to, and in most cases will, cancel a tour that has fewer than five tickets sold by 6pm the day before the event. We will, of course, refund all existing ticket buyers when we do.
