Fancy-dress Fun, Wicked Workshops and a screening of Disney’s greatest Halloween movie – just some of the SpOOktacular activities taking place at Siamsa Tíre this Halloween.

We are delighted to once again invite ghouls and ghosts of all ages to join us for this year’s Something Wicked celebration from 29th October to 2nd November 2022 when we’ll transform our halls into the ultimate Samhain (Halloween) destination and create ‘Wickedly’ fun events for everyone in the family.
