Samhain, everybody’s favourite phantasmal forest of fright will materialise before your very eyes in Marlay Park on Sunday October 28th 2018. The annual spookfest is back in all its gory glory with the sounds, shadows and creatures of the night that only appear in Marlay Park once a year on the haunted forest walk.

No one knows why they come to Marlay Park on the Sunday before Halloween each year but you have been warned that ghouls and goblins like the Wicked Woodsman, Crane the Mad, Witches of the Woods, Phantom Tailors and Banshees may all once again make an appearance.

Dress your worst, in your most freakily frightening costume and join us this for this unique fright in the forest. But remember, once you enter the haunted forest walk there is no controlling the spectral spirits so do not get too close.

We want to see you in your Halloween costumes but remember Samhain is an outdoor event so warm clothing is recommended.

The walk is approx. 1.7km long on a path suitable for buggies and wheelchairs.
