Halloween Events

Gone are the days when all we wanted to do is go trick or treating on Halloween. If you’re stuck for something to do then look no further because we’ve conjured up the top five events happening in Dublin around All Hallows’ Eve.

1: Halloween Roller Disco:

Get your skates on and spin around the dancefloor with Eleven from Stranger Things, Edward Scissorhands and Hermione Granger. 

The annual Halloween party will take place in Dublin’s only roller disco in Finches Business Park, Longmile Road on October 31. Make sure you wear your best costume (and not the backup one you got in Dealz) and you might be in with a chance of winning a fab prize.

Tickets cost €10 and are available to buy here.

2: Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Pub Quiz:

Watching the Halloween episodes of The Simpsons has become a ritual for us so what better way to test your knowledge than to take part in the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Pub Quiz.

There'll be costumes, episode screenings and top prizes on the night. Head down to Hely’s Bar on Dame Street on October 28 and celebrate the spookiest time of year with the best TV family.

Tickets cost €22 and are available to buy here.

3: The Great Gatsby Halloween Party:

Head back to the 1920s and 1930s and party in style like the great Jay Gatsby. Think of the flapper dresses, the fancy cocktails and the jazz music that will leave you twirling around the dancefloor all night.

You can enjoy a dinner and show for a mere €15 at this glorious event. 

If anyone needs us we’ll be hunting down the perfect flapper girl dress for this classy event.

Get your Gatsby on at the Purty Kitchen in Dun Laoghaire on October 28. Tickets are available to buy here.

4: Halloween Movie Screenings at the Lighthouse:

Our favourite cinema is screening some of the BEST Halloween movies this October and you just don’t want to miss them.

The Lighthouse Cinema will be showing everything from Hocus Pocus to The Blair Witch Project as we inch closer to Halloween. You can cosy up with some popcorn but make sure you hold on tight to it because some of these horrors will have you jumping out of your skin.

5: Heroes from Mars presents The Goblin King Masquerade Ball:

The Grand Social have knocked it out of the park again with this event.

The Goblin King Masquerade Ball celebrates the best of the late David Bowie. You can strut around to his biggest hits like Let’s Dance and Ashes to Ashes, as well as hits from Labyrinth, on the night of October 28.

Fancy dress isn’t essential but c’mon it’s Halloween and Bowie is a fashion icon. You just can’t miss this night celebrating the Goblin King himself.

Tickets cost €13.72 and are available to buy here.

We've never been so excited for Halloween in the Big Smoke. There are so many spooktacular events happening.

Ladies, it's mere hours (squeee!) until the whistle will be blown to officially kick off the Halloween Bank Holiday weekend.

But if you've yet to nab yourself a ticket to an event this weekend, don't panic and suddenly resign yourself to a night of trick or treating.

Dublin has truly outdone itself this year, with countless events and attractions lending an air of the surreal to our capital city.

And here, ladies, are the absolute best.

1. Stokerland

Open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, this family-friendly theme park will give you the opportunity to experience Halloween through the eyes of a child in the 1800s.

2. The Nightmare Realm

Touted as Ireland’s most terrifying scare house, The Nightmare Realm in the RDS will be accepting Ireland's bravest visitors until well into next week.

3. Bleedin’ Deadly 

This incredible event kicking off tomorrow night is your chance to immerse yourself in freak show culture, and is PERFECT for you if your Halloween is more about the freak than the creep.

4. Urban Legends

Taking place in Smithfield Square at 7pm this October 31, this event will walk you through some of your capital city's most infamous characters…

5. Prohibition: The Beautiful and the Damned

Inject a little ghoulish sophistication into this year’s festivities by donning a flapper dress, downing a gin punch and dancing your soul out to a mix of vintage and electro swing DJ at the Irish Museum of Modern Art on Saturday October 29.

6. Macnas Parade

Taking to the streets to celebrate the eerie wonder that is Halloween, Macnas, the world-renowned pioneers of imagination and invention, will be parading through Dublin’s Moore St and Henry St on October 31, and you have the chance to see it!

7. Mother Stoker's Sickly Stories

Taking place on Friday October 28 in North Great Georges Street, the Pygmankenstein Theatre Company and The Gremlin will introduce three writers who will lead you through the life of Bram Stoker – the Dubliner behind Dracula.

8. Monster Season

Kicking off tomorrow night, the Lighthouse Cinema will be showing a series of classic monster movies – and they do, as always, encourage more than a little fancy dress.

9. Wild Spirit

If you're more into the spiritual side of Halloween, then you need to get involved with Wild Spirit – a yoga-focussed, music-fuelled, foodie event celebrating one of the most atmospheric times of the year.

And finally…

10. Halloween Haunted Spooktacular Event

OK, you're going to have to let us away on this one because it's actually in Meath, but you'd hate us for not flagging it!

Put yourself at the mercy of the people behind Ireland’s largest scare attraction by making your way through the Haunted Corn Maze before trying to make it out The Laboratory alive…
