Halloween is going to be a bit different this year. There’ll be no parties or clubbing for the foreseeable future – but that doesn’t mean you can’t do something fun and spooky! Here’s a list of our top safe, socially distanced or virtual events happening this year.
Retro Drive In Movies @ Leopardstown Racecourse
For those who love scary movies, Retro Drive In Movies are showing all the classics at their drive-in movie theatre at Leopardstown Racecourse. All of your favourites are being screened all through the month of October, including the Amityville Horror on October 11th, Scream on October 25th, and the ultimate spooky comedy, Hocus Pocus, on Halloween night
Bram Stoker Festival
The Bram Stoker fest is an event that happens every year over Halloween weekend, as a celebration of famous author Bram Stoker and his creation Dracula. This year, the festival are planning some small physical events as well as some virtual ones, so you can take part from the comfort of your own home.
Farmaphobia, the spooky walk-through experience, will be going ahead this year, as it had altered its attractions to be socially distanced and comply with all government guidelines. It promises it won’t be any less scary though and it consists of three different attractions – a World War 2 theme, a carnival theme and a ‘Purge’ theme. Farmaphobia is running from the 9th of October through to the 31st.
Macabre Dublin Walking Tour
Dublin has a very spooky history, explore it all on this dark walking tour by Yellow Umbrella Tours. Hear spine chilling tales of witchcraft, hauntings and ghostly exploits, murders and mayhem beneath the gateway to Hell. This tour is great for people who want a bit of a scare while also learning some fun history about our capital city.
Just because you can’t get together with your group of friends physically, doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun. The possibilities are endless… costume parties, spooky quizzes, a virtual scary movie night! While it isn’t going to be the same as being with your friends in person, it’s important to keep in touch with people and still make the most of a strange situation.
