Open House Dublin

Play with vampires, see scary movies, dress up, boogie to the early hours… there is usually host of events you should not miss! Parade is awesome, there might be deadly banquet in a crypt and much much more… 

Samhain Festival 

Weekend fancy dress festival in airport hangar just outside of Dublin – if this sounds like your thing, tickets are under €50 and there will be transport to the festival from city centre. Annie Mac headlines Samhain Festival on Saturday October 28th and Liam Gallagher will headline Sunday October 29th with special guests The Strypes & Northern Ireland’s Touts.

Dublin Halloween Night Run Sandymount

Take a spooky sprint around the city with the Dublin Halloween Night Run around Sandymount. You’ll deserve the booty from the trick-or-treat sweet stash after completing a 5k or 10k around Sandymount the week before Halloween. You may even want to get dressed up for the occasion; a sea of skeletons or eerie spirits running on the beach? Who wouldn’t want that??? You also get fancy medal… make sure to sign up ASAP as this is sell out every year.

Metropolis Festival

Wanna see TLC and go chasing waterfalls? This is the gig for you! One of Metropolis Festival’s core elements over the last two years has been a series of conversations focusing on and highlighting the creativity that works in tandem with the music.  This year’s festival takes place over the October Bank Holiday weekend with TLC and Jungle performing.

We hope to see you this October! Make sure to book one of our special offers for your next stay!
