Halloween in Cork

It’s the perfect time to escape to Cork as a family, with a huge selection of activities to do while your in the Real Capital, this mid term break. We’ve compiled a list of our Five favourite activities to do in Cork this Halloween.

Dragon of Shandon

Shandon is one of the most historic areas of the city and for the last 17 years this area comes alive with ghosts, ghouls, monsters and of course the famous Dragon of Shandon on October 31st. The parade kicks off at around 7pm, winding its way down from Shandon Street into the city centre.

The Pumpkin Patch at The Farm in Grenagh

The Farm in Grenagh is a great place to bring the family all year round but at Halloween it is a very special to be. Besides the usual attractions of the working farm, fairy garden, 1950's village and adventure playground, you will make their way through the maze, choose your pumpkin, carve them with the help of some friendly witches, cast some spells and join in on some festive games. Booking is essential.

Spooky Screenings at Cork City Gaol

Nothing screams Halloween more than a scary movie. The Cork City Gaol is hosting a scary movie inside the supposedly haunted jail for Halloween. Take a look at Scenic Cinema for more details on the spooky movies being shown.

Harvest Moonshine at the Marina Market

An interactive theatre show with high energy dance routines and catchy sing songs in the Marina Market’s fully covered event space. Ideal for every child, they will receive their very own fairy wings, wands and harvest crown and are encouraged to dress as their favourite fairy, witch or pumpkin to complement their new fairy wings.
