What to do in Dublin this Halloween ? One of the places where you really want to spend your Halloween is in Dublin. Full of dressed up people, crazy parties and lots of live Halloween music events – you will have a ball ! The “Fancy dressed” crowd around the city make this place amazing – you can even meet Captain Morgan on the Luas and other strange and funny creatures on the streets of Dublin
Halloween parties begin anytime from the weekend before. and finish weekend after 31st of October. The best option we think for our guests on Halloween night is the Hostel’s Dublin Pub Crawl where you will get welcome Guinness, special drinks discounts, no queues and entrance to all of the places on the list (included in the price!!) also beer pong, free shots and live Irish music. And more fun than you can shake your broom at .
This year our “Halloween edition” pub crawl will be getting into the “Spirit”! Fancy dress is encouraged with a prize for best costume and usual unbeatable value and deals .The Crawl will finish off Dublin’s biggest club where there is a Halloween theme club night/ It all kicks off at the Mercantile Pub from 8pm . You can buy tickets at Isaacs Hostel or Jacobs inn reception for just €12
There are also few events which I recommend for this year’s Halloween celebration in Dublin:
Felabration: Dublin Afrobeat Ensemble Not quite Halloween yet but a very interesting event: The EP Launch is on Friday 25th October in Sugar Club.
