Head West for ‘Ireland’s Best Halloween’ Fest

Halloween Festival At Westport House 2019

As summer draws to a close, anticipation starts to build for Halloween and rumours flourish of ghoulish goings on at the historic Westport House in Co. Mayo. The annual Halloween Festival, running from 26th and 31st October is the perfect place to go for fiendish family fun.

The 18th century historic house will be transformed into a (not too) scary haunted house for the week (suitable for little ones), and the attractions and activities on offer are guaranteed to cast a spell over your little witches and warlocks!  The cauldron of festive fun includes the White Witch’s story time and ghastly face painting. For that added bubble, boil and trouble make sure you try out the frighteningly good family workshops and activities throughout the day:

Get ready for plenty of ghoulish delights, scary stories and creepy fun that all the family will be able to enjoy!

  • Head to the Haunted Estate House, transformed into a spooky old mansion for Halloween Fest.
  • Gather ‘round the cauldron for Scary Story Time, with wicked tales from the White Witch of Westport.
  • Brave souls can visit the dark dungeons, where the Pirate Queen Grace O’Malley locked up her prisoners.
  • Carve a creepy pumpkin* and decorate some ghoulish goblin cakes at the Spooky Spoons Workshop.
  • Get your Michael Jackson zombie moves on at the Thriller Dance Class.

Make sure you get in the spirit of things by dressing up in Halloween costumes!
