Samhain at EPIC Museum
Prepare for a scare at EPIC: The Irish Emigration Museum this Halloween. On the 28 October the otherworldly will descend upon the vaults of the CHQ building in historic Dublin Docklands, as spirits big (and small) will gather for the inaugural family Samhain festival!
Celebrating the ancient origins of Halloween, Samhain Festival will bring back our ancient ghostly tales and inspire a new generation to unleash their inner Seanchaí (storyteller) with our Samhain story competition, story workshops and gruesome tales from Ireland’s most famous Seanchaí — storyteller Eddie Lenehan.
Expect lots of spine-chilling fun and immerse yourself in an authentic Halloween experience, with everything from turnip carving, creepy creative workshops, traditional Halloween games and hijinks, and a whole host of characters from the Banshee, the Morrigán, some naughty fairies and the Pooka.
