Get ready for ghastly ghouls, jumping Jack O’Lanterns, and hair-raising hocus pocus at Mayo’s most beautiful haunted house. The annual Halloween Fest at Westport House is bringing back the black cats and broomsticks for a fangtastic fright fest from Saturday October 29 to Monday October 31, from 10am to 6pm daily. And you could win a ticket for a family of four worth €40. As the house is transformed with webs, wizards, and witchcraft, it is guaranteed to rival even the latest Harry Potter novel. Indulge your little ones in fun and games, workshops and activities - frightening fun for all the family at Westport House.
Listen to the wily white witch’s spirited story time, play musical statues at the daily kiddies’ disco, delve into the Spooky Spoons workshop with repulsive recipes made from bat wings and the eyes of toads, and craft a Jack O’Lantern to bring home for the holiday. If that is not enough to get their knees knocking, get them busting some zombie moves! Back by popular demand is the ‘Thriller’ dance workshop, where your little monsters can learn all the moves from Michael Jackson’s legendary 'Thriller' music video in the formal large dining room of Westport House.
Outside and on the front lawn of Westport House, you are invited to try the colourful carnival rides and games as well as hop on the Westport Train Tour. Join all the fun at Halloween Fest and go dressed in your best creepy costume, but be sure to dress for mess if you are taking part in the Jack O’Lantern or Spooky Spoons workshops which are very hands-on!
