Halloween in Dublin is known as Samhain (pronounced 'sow in'), based on the Pagan celebration of the dead to signal the end of the Celtic summer.
This festival is one of Ireland’s largest events that attracts up to 20,000 revellers. There's a Halloween Parade that snakes its way through the city from Parnell Square to Temple Bar and Wood Quay. Let's not forget the breathtaking fireworks display afterwards which is always worth staying up for.
You can also go back in time and experience how Samhain was celebrated centuries ago thee North County Dublin town of Naul. Learn the traditions and meet the locals as you take part in the brilliant Halloween parade, which will return again this year.
- Get there: Fly to Dublin then hire a car or take the bus to the city centre.
- Stay: Book accommodation in the city centre - the parade starts north of the river so you'll be well-located.
