The Haunting of Castle Malloy is the 19th installment in the Nancy Drew video game series created by Her Interactive.


Nancy travels to Ireland to be the maid of honor in her friend Kyler Malloy's wedding. As Nancy arrives, however, a ghostly figure runs out in front of her car causing her to crash. The caretaker, Donal Malloy, tries to send Nancy away saying the wedding has been called off. She soon finds out the groom is missing, and everyone has their own suspicion as to why. There have also been strange noises and lights around the castle, and even sightings of a banshee! Does the banshee's scream foretell the death of one of the castle's occupants? Has the groom really run off on his own as a practical joke, or did something more sinister occur?


As with all Nancy Drew games there is the potential for many fatal accidents, such as:

  • Attempting to cross the bog and drowning.
  • Exploding the jet pack.
  • Trying to jump across the gap in the tower stairs and falling.
  • Falling off a cliff.
  • Plummeting into the ocean while using the jet pack.
  • Mixing volatile chemicals and causing an explosion.
  • Detonating a WWII-era rocket.


Kyler Mallory - A stock broker in London who lived with Nancy's family as an exchange student four years ago. She is now engaged to Matt Simmons and is excited to hold her wedding at Castle Malloy. Her grandfather, Edmund Malloy, recently died and named her as the sole beneficiary. He never spoke about his childhood and Kyler is just now learning about her true family history. Her real last name is actually Malloy, her grandfather changed it to Mallory so no one would find out they were Irish.

Matt Simmons - A travel and sailing free-lance writer for magazines. Known for his dry wit, Matt loves to play pranks on others. Friendly and likable, he had planned on getting married in the Bahamas, but agreed to change his plans to make his fiancée, Kyler Mallory, happy.

Kit Foley - Matt's best friend and accomplice on sailing trips. Kit was born in the US and is the son of a Krolmeister Inc. VP. The company transferred the family to London when Kit was young, but he never picked up the British accent. He currently works as a land developer, and he arrived early to help Matt and Kyler prepare for their wedding. He used to date Kyler, he is also the one who introduced Kyler to Matt.

Donal Delany - As Castle Malloy's ever-present caretaker, he's been watching the grounds for too many years to count. This Irish born gentleman isn't particularly fond of the British and he's the first to admit it. He is however the resident expert on Irish mythology and lore, which might explain his overly superstitious nature. He likes Kyler but hates Matt.

Alan Paine - Matt's best man and office mate who heard Kit and Matt arguing. He doesn't like to go to Castle Malloy any more until Matt has been found. You can only reach him through phone.

Seamus - The owner of The Screaming Banshee Inn. He is an unseen character but you can hear his voice when Nancy is making drinks.
