Halloween At Bunratty Folk Park 2018

Bunratty Monsters, Misfits and Mayhem:

Halloween At Bunratty Folk Park invites all ‘ghastly ghouls’, ‘grisly gremlins’, ‘scary fairies’, ‘wicked witches’ ‘devilish demons’ and ‘hair-raising warlocks’ to go a haunting at Bunratty Folk Park, Co. Clare, on Bank Holiday Monday from 12.00 to 6.00 p.m to get into practice for Halloween.

Back by popular demand is ‘Halloween Ghost Train Ride’ where ghosts and goblins will appear when you least expect it.

Among the other spin chilling, fear wrenching features during the Folk Park’s Halloween event there is an opportunity for young and old spooks and goblins to come face to face with a tarantula spider, snakes, lizards, scorpions and owls will literally ‘be on hand’ as visitors will be offered an opportunity to view these creatures up close and personal!

Free face-painting will be provided in the barn on arrival so haunting can be at its scariest during the afternoon. The young ‘spooks’ can travel back in time to enjoy favourite games of times past including snap apple, coin bobbing, and storytelling in different farmhouses around the Folk Park.

An annual favourite returns in the form of the Thriller tribute, a performance of Michael Jackson’s legendary dance routine follows each ‘Captain Jack and his Rattling Bones Show’

Prizes galore will be awarded to the children whose costumes are adjudicated to be most in keeping with the theme of the day. Make sure to come dressed in your scariest outfit for the fancy dress competition

Whilst the children are getting into the ‘spirit’ of things, parents will have an opportunity to enjoy traditional Irish music on the Village Street, or they can revel in the sights of the Folk Park, such as milk separating, butter making, baking and milling demonstrations, stroll around the grounds, take a break with tea and scones in the tea room, or have a sumptuous lunch in Mac’s Pub.
