Irish Ghost Story: Unknown location

This ghost story happened to my father's mother's father. It was around 1902 or so, and my great-grandfather had to move his family to Ireland from the Isle of Man. He went ahead of the rest of the family to try to set up house (or whatever - the details of this are sketchy). Anyway, he took a room at a boardinghouse temporarily until he could send for the rest of the family. One day he was making his way upstairs in said boardinghouse and passed an elderly woman on the stairs leading to the second floor. He thought nothing much of this, as the woman appeared normal in every aspect. Later as he was speaking to the land lady, he casually inquired as to who the woman was. The land lady looked at him as if he's lost his mind and told him there were no other boarders in the house at the time. Nonetheless, my great grandfather insisted he had seen someone. The land lady then asked him to describe this mystery woman. As he did so, the land lady blanched, telling him that he had just described her mother who had been dead for some time (I'm not sure if she died in the house). Not very spooky, but kind of weird just the same.
