5 spooktacular family events in Ireland this Halloween
With mid-term holidays and Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to keep the kids entertained with a frightful family trip. Ireland is the cradle of Samhain, the Celt pagan festival leading to Halloween as we know it. As so, you won’t find a better destination to enjoy some terrifying days surrounded by ghosts, zombies, witches and your own “little monsters”.
Offering both transport and accommodation in one, a campervan not only allows you to get into the spirit of Halloween with freedom and comfort, but it can also make your experience spookier than ever! Park up in haunted forests, get some Halloween-theme decorations, drive through dark roads, watch bloodcurdling films on board… everything is possible in your home on wheels!
