It is widely accepted that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient harvest festivals in Ireland particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain (sow an). It celebrated the harvest, end of summer and welcomed in the winter. Its roots are pagan and many of the customs associated with Halloween come from pagan Ireland. Traditions such as lighting fires on the land the night of Oct 31st and driving the cattle between the two fires to cleanse them of evil spirits. Throwing the tea leaves from the tea pot out to the fairies. Blessing the house with holy water to protect it from angry spirits coming through on Nov 1st when the veil is at its thinnest.
We want to share our customs, traditions, culture, our haunted Castles, Abbeys, houses and land with you. Come with Secret Ireland Tours and Haunted Journeys to Ireland and experience the Irish spirits for yourself.

We pick you up from the airport and make our way into Dublin where we visit Kilmainham Jail. This jail was used to hold men, women and children before, during and after famine times in Ireland. Many people died there of starvation. During the 1916 rising to free Ireland from British rule the leaders were captured and jailed there. They were all shot in the court yard which you will see when you go there.
We then take a trip to the famous, very haunted Malahide Castle where you might see the lady in white or the pooka.
