Halloween Spooktacular at Johnstown Castle – Saturday 26th of October -Thursday 31st of October

For the first time in its long history, Johnstown Castle will open to the public at Halloween and its resident ghosts are non-too happy! Our spooktacular family tour, led by some of our good ghosts such as Sir John Esmonde, will take our visitors through our dungeons and up into the gothic, ghoulish castle…

The tours will run in the castle on the hour from 11 a.m. – 3.00p.m. each day from 26th October through until the 31st October.  This spooky tour is for ages 5 years and up.

While you’re here you can also take our Halloween FAIRY DOCTOR’S TRAIL around our beautiful lake and discover the magical properties of our flora and fauna.
