Halloween in Northern Ireland

Where better to scare yourself rigid this Halloween than Northern Ireland!

Another, darker side to Northern Ireland comes to the fore on All Hallows Eve.  Whether you are a visitor or a local, you will love our stories of ghostly going-ons, creaking stately homes, haunted hotels and spooky family attractions!  And with the release of Universal's Dracula Untold, filmed on location in Northern Ireland there will be plenty of supernatural goings-on this Autumn.
