Loftus Hall, reputed to be the most haunted house in Ireland are taking terror to an all new level and are launching a brand new interactive tour just in time for Halloween.
Down the road at the 800-year-old Hook Lighthouse and located in the graveyard of 1,000 ships there will be no shortage of spooky tales. During Halloween, the lighthouse runs ghostly tours, taking visitors up the 115 steps to the original keepers’ quarters. Atmospheric lighting, hanging spiders and creepy nooks and crannies along the way are not for the feint-hearted.
Haunting happenings are on offer right across county Wexford with paranormal Tours and a ‘School of Witches and Wizards’ is on offer at Enniscorthy Castle, the 300 year-old Wells House will host ghoulish guides telling tales of the resident spirits. Tales of the Enchanted Forest and The Park After will offer a fright at the Irish National Heritage Park, the spirit of Halloween is alive and well in Wexford.
The Irish National Heritage Park are celebrating Halloween with Tales of the Enchanted Forest kids tour for children aged 5-10. For the brave out there, The Park After Dark 2013 takes place at the Heritage Park from October 25 up to November 2. This attraction is super scary and kids must be over 8 years old and accompanied by an adult.
The Irish Agricultural Museum at Johnstown Castle host a family ‘Fright at the Museum’ from October 27 to October 28 where visitors can enjoy a ‘Spooktacular’ day of fun and meet a host of gruesome characters around the museum courtyard.
Following their hugely popular sell-out Halloween shows last year, the Haunted Halloween Tour returns to Wells House this year. From September 21 to November 1 take a journey into the darkest heart of Halloween with the return of ‘The Horror of the Witches’ Bride.
