Destination Unknown Halloween Special: Five Spooky Activities in Ireland
As Halloween is drawing closer and I am currently traveling through Ireland, I thought that I’d cover some of the slightly more spooky activities to do and attractions to see in Ireland, in the spirit of Halloween. Many of these you can visit any time of the year, so if you are not easily freaked out and want to experience something more alternative on your vacation, read on for few tips on how to make your stay a little spooky or utterly freaky.
The Dublin Ghostbus Tour
Forget recorded guiding and headphones that don’t work, the Dublin Ghostbus Tour takes you on a two-hour ride through some of the lesser known Dublin sights with a live storyteller, once the sun has set. The tour is not suitable for children under 14 years or for the fainthearted.

Ghost Bus Dublin: The Gravedigger
Unearth the darker side of Dublin and hop on the 4D Gravedigger experience which will transport you back some six hundred years. Your guide will take you through the weird and wonderful events that have taken place in times gone by, unearthing legends and ghosts from Dublin’s plague-ravaged past.

Farmaphobia at Causey Farm
Causey Farm is really a working farm where you can join various activity programmes all through the year suited for both adults and children and varying from milking cows to baking traditional bread. But come Halloween, and the Causey Farm Production “Farmaphobia” is sure to chill your blood.
Journey through a frightful evening of screams and laughter… eerie corners, blood-curdling frights, ghoulish entertainers, heart-pounding, adrenalin pumping, life-threatening fear… your worst nightmares come true!
Now, I’m a wuss when it comes to horror and you wouldn’t catch me at this event. But the Causey Farm does have Halloween events suited for children too, and the Tiny Terrors or Spooks & Spells Halloween specials would probably be more suited for me, too.

Satu Vänskä-Westgarth decided to take a year off from her nine to five marketing executive life in Finland early 2009 to travel with her kayak, bike or skis and sometimes without. "One year" turned into a new lifestyle as a travel writer, accompanied with a not-so-British entrepreneur husband from Britain, who seems to spend more time outside the borders of his homeland than within, and their baby, who has already spent more months outside Norway than at their home in Norway, where the family resides at the moment.
