  • Montpelier Hill est une colline de 383 mètres d'altitude située dans le comté de Dublin en Irlande. Elle est surnommée Hell Fire Club (en irlandais Club Thine Ifrinn, « le club du feu de l'enfer »), du nom du bâtiment situé à son sommet. Cet ancien pavillon de chasse, désormais en ruine, a été construit vers 1725 par William Conolly.La colline est associée à de nombreux événements paranormaux depuis que des membres d'un club secret, actif entre 1735 et 1741, ont commencé à utiliser le lieu pour se réunir. Le folklore local comporte plusieurs histoires lugubres concernant des agissements étranges, de la débauche ainsi que des pratiques occultes et des manifestations démoniaques autour de ce club, si bien que le bâtiment a pris le nom de « Hell Fire Club ».Autour de la colline se trouvent différents lieux et résidences, dont les restes du domaine Killakee, une grande demeure de style victorien avec un grand jardin à la française, la maison des Stewards, ou encore le château de Carthy.Au XXIe siècle, Montpelier Hill et la plupart du terrain environnant, y compris le domaine Killakee, sont ouverts au public et appartiennent à la compagnie forestière Coillte, propriété de l'État irlandais.
  • Montpelier Hill is a hill, 383 metres (1,257 feet) high in County Dublin, Ireland. It is commonly referred to as the Hell Fire Club (Irish: Club Thine Ifrinn), the popular name given to the ruined building at the summit. This building – a hunting lodge built around 1725 by William Conolly – was originally called Mount Pelier and since its construction the hill has also gone by the same name. The original Irish name of the hill is no longer known although the historian and archaeologist Patrick Healy has suggested that the hill is the place known as Suide Uí Ceallaig or Suidi Celi in the Crede Mihi, the twelfth century diocesan register book of the Archbishops of Dublin.Montpelier is the closest to Dublin city of the group of mountains – along with Killakee, Featherbed Bog, Kippure, Seefingan, Corrig, Seahan, Ballymorefinn, Carrigeenoura and Slievenabawnogue – that form the ridge that bounds the Glenasmole valley. On the slopes is a forestry plantation, known as Hell Fire Wood, which consists of Sitka spruce, larch and beech.Originally there was a cairn with a prehistoric passage grave on the summit. Stones from the cairn were taken and used in the construction of Mount Pelier lodge. Shortly after completion, a storm blew the roof off. Local superstition attributed this incident to the work of the Devil, a punishment for interfering with the cairn. Since this time, Montpelier Hill has become associated with numerous paranormal events.This reputation was further enhanced when members of the Irish Hell Fire Club, which was active in the years 1735 to 1741, began using Mount Pelier lodge as a meeting place. Numerous lurid stories of wild behaviour and debauchery as well as occult practices and demonic manifestations have become part of the local folklore. The original name of the lodge has been displaced and the building is generally known as the Hell Fire Club. When the lodge was damaged by fire, the members of the Hell Fire Club relocated down the hill to the nearby Stewards House for a brief period. This building also has a reputation for being haunted, most notably by a massive black cat.Adjacent to the Stewards House is the remains of Killakee Estate. A large Victorian house was built here in the early nineteenth century by Luke White. White's son, Samuel, oversaw the development of extensive formal gardens on the estate, including the construction of several glasshouses by Richard Turner. The estate passed to the Massy family through inheritance in 1880 and John Thomas Massy, the 6th Baron made extensive use of the house and ground to host shooting parties and society gatherings. The fortunes of the Massy family declined in the early twentieth century and Hamon Massy, the 8th Baron, was evicted from Killakee House in 1924. He became known as the "Penniless Peer". Following the eviction, Killakee House was demolished and the gardens fell into ruin.Today Montpelier Hill and much of the surrounding lands, including Killakee Estate (now called Lord Massy's Estate) are owned by the State forestry company Coillte and are open to the public.
