Over the last 33 years, the Walled City has become synonymous with hosting one of the world’s biggest Halloween festivals.

Supernatural beings and the souls of the dead flood into the city. Highlights include Awakening the Walls, haunted harvest market, Museum of the Moon, Little Horrors shows and entertainment, monster fun fair, Samhain sessions, tours and trails, carnival parade, fireworks plus lots more.

Fright Night

  • Magherafelt, October 25-31

Fright Night will see the return of the horrid and harrowing Woodland Trail.

This interactive story throws you into a real life horror simulation as each peculiar character reveals more of the twisted story to you as you journey through the eerie forest trail.

Expect more frights, more scares, more unbridled terror and more screams. To set the scene it will be enhanced with low level atmospheric lighting, special effects and a creepy cast of unusual characters.

The Dark Tower

  • October 25

Ascend the Dark Tower for an adults-only night of music, drink, and scares. Come to the darkest reaches of the Tower Museum and meet the ghosts and ghouls of the city’s past.

Prepare to be scared witless and afterwards pull yourself together, grab a drink at the bar, and explore the upper levels of the Tower – and expect the unexpected.

Monster Halloween Fun Fair

  • October 25 - November 3

Scare yourself silly on the ghost train or a take a trip on Ireland’s tallest big wheel. Lots of thrills and family attractions with rides suitable for the whole family. Located at Guildhall Square.

Field of Screams

  • Limavady, October 25-30

Enter if you dare! The Field of Screams returns to Carrowmena Activity Centre this October for six horrendously scary Halloween nights. Guaranteed to scare and not for the faint hearted. Ages 14 and over.
