Looking for something to do with the kids this coming midterm?
Well there's lots going on in East Cork this year. I now it's only the beginning of the month but I've compiled a list below because if you're anything like me you may like to plan well in advance!


  • Ghoulsley's Manor, Cuskinny, Cobh - This is actually located a few minutes drive from where I live and it's a relatviely new set up. Suitable from age 5 and it offers a 60minute "theatrical experience where you are invited on a journey through the mysterious rooms of our spooky manor house. It offers 2 different shows for different age groups and tickets cost €15.00 pp. Click on the link above to visit their website.

  • BOO! @ Leahy's Open Farm , Dungourney - Offers Haunted Hay Rides, Witches Forest, Scary Stories and Halloween games. We love Leahy's Farm and have done the Christmas experience so we are hoping to make it to this one too. €9 entry per person and this also includes access to all normal farm activites and play areas.

  • Youghaloween Spooktacular, Youghal - A Halloween festival running from October 27th - 29th "blending old Celtic ways of celebrating Samhain with the new". Youghal is a medieval town "steeped in legends and stories banshees, witches, ghosts and more" so it makes for the ideal location for this time of year. If you're looking for something different this year then I reckon this won't disappoint, we're really looking forward to going.
