Halloween in Ireland

Halloween is one of the most mystic times of the year when all generations gather up to create memories of a lifetime. Here is our list of the coolest things to do in Ireland on Halloween.

Creepy creator Tours at the GAA Museum

Running from the 25th of October until the 31st, the Creepy Creator Tours are one of Dublin’s best Halloween activities for families. Right in the heart of the GAA museum, you’ll have the opportunity to take a tour of the stadium which brings to life the magic of the home of Gaelic games. Back at the GAA museum, visitors will be able to create their own Halloween masterpiece by decorating a ceramic pumpkin or bat candle holder that will be made for you to keep.
