Halloween 2019

Lots to do across the west this Halloween

From the dark dungeons of Westport House to the tombs of Carrowmore Cemetery to the much less spooky streets of Letterkenny, there’s lots to do in the west this Halloween. We’ve rounded up a few of our frightening favourites…

Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery

Creep your way round Carrowmore

Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery is one of the most magical places to be on Halloween as the sun lights up many of the sites at dawn on 31st October. The site will be open at 7.15am in time for sunrise and a talk about sacred Neolithic journeys at 8am. There’ll also be tea and buns to keep you in the present!

 

Lose your head in Letterkenny

Lose your head in Letterkenny

It’s party time on the streets of Letterkenny with their annual Halloween Fest kicking off at 12.30pm on 31st at the Market Centre. You can try out the trick or treat trail, scream room or the games and storytelling session before taking part in the big parade!

 

Glendeer's Spooktastic Halloween Event

Hang out with the Roscommon witch

Roscommon’s Glendeer Pet Farm has turned ghoulish for Halloween from 26th October – 3rd November with an eerie maze and Pumpkin Passage through the Forbidden Forest past skeletons, ghosts and ghouls. You can hang out and cast spells with the scary witch and toast marshmallows over an open fire – but it might be spookier than you think!

Dare the dark dungeons of Westport House

Down in the basement of Westport House this Halloween, you can explore the dark dungeons and gather round the cauldron for some wicked tales from the White Witch of Westport. You can also get stuck onto the Pirate Adventure Park which has less frights and more thrills! See their video here

Get spooked at the Burren Nature Sanctuary

The haunted barn at Burren Nature Sanctuary has been kitted out to host a scary mix of spooky characters and some eerie ghost stories. If you don’t look scary enough to join in, get your face painted as your favourite character and see if you can spook your neighbour!
