Tales from the Enchanted Forest, Wexford

Wells House Haunted Halloween Tour

Wells House Haunted Halloween Tour is a ghoulish theatrical journey through the 17th century house and gardens, located just 18km from Gorey. Following the hugely popular sell-out Halloween shows last October, the Haunted Halloween Tour returns with ‘The Horror of the Witches’ Bride’. It promises to be a journey into the darkest heart of Halloween where a young bride and her groom face the torment of never sharing their vows and evil rules supreme.

Halloween Train

rathwoodRathwood Gift & Garden World’s Halloween Train will take children on a magical journey where they’ll meet some spooky characters and friendly creatures. On board of the Halloween Train, we will travel back to a time when goblins and fairies roamed freely in the Rathwood forest. Children will also get to see our Enchanted Tree where fairies have set up their playground, its miniature door and windows allowing access only to the ‘little people’.

Cross if you dare the Bridge of Invisibility, be silent as you sneak to the Pooka’s house, be afraid as you claim your pumpkin and be gentle when you carve it to free the captured fairies.

This wonderful journey will capture your children’s imaginations and allow them the freedom to enhance the story as they wish. Kids are encouraged to dress up, as we have a prize for the best fancy dress on each journey!

Savour Kilkenny Food Festival

Visit the Savour Kilkenny Food Festival from 23rd – 28th October. Taste your way around the Food Village on the Parade in front of magnificent Kilkenny Castle, pick up tips from top chefs and check out the next generation of upcoming foodies at the Savour Buds young producers’ market.

The Park After Dark

Park After Dark is a horror experience set in the Irish National Heritage Park. Aid in the investigation of the recent strange happenings taking place in the park after dark! This event is scary and children must be accompanied by an adult. It is not suitable for children under the age of 8.

Blood and guts in Gorey!

The north Wexford town of Gorey is perfectly named for some fiendish fun at Halloween!  At A Gorey Halloween, (October 25th – 31st), kids can take a creepy treasure hunt to find sweets and treats, hop on the ghastly ghost train and hop off for Scary Story Time, guaranteed to transport them to the twilight terror zone!
