Halloween Events 2016

Fantastic memories of being dressed up as a ghost in a sheet or a witch in a black plastic bag and being lucky to get sweets or chocolate (when more then likely you would get monkey nuts, grapes, mandarin oranges and handfuls of loose popcorn!) while going from house to house. Now we have so much more to offer families and groups to add to the magic and mystery of Halloween. We have searched high and low for Ireland’s top Halloween events and activities and we have come up with these great spooky days out. Enjoy a happy and safe Halloween 🎃🎃🎃
