Come and be spooked at the award-winning Dalkey Castle this Halloween. We have lots of fun spooky things for young people to do.
Pick your steps around a haunted graveyard and meet a real ghost, the ancient protector of Dalkey Castle. Learn the secrets of a real Viking warrior, who captures slaves and imprisons them on Dalkey Island. Pay the Viking taxes, or ‘pay through the nose’.
Make your own Viking coins to go into the Halloween Barm Brack. Later search for the Enchanted Ring. Carry the Jack o’ Lantern that the devil gave to a damned soul. Stand in The Murder Room of the Castle, and watch what terrible things descend through it. Dare to sit upon the Barber Surgeon’s table and use the cruel weapons of medieval times. Bring to life the ‘Zombie Child’ – a magic puppet who comes to life at this time of year and dance the Witches Dance.
