From the Tiny Baby Boos to the Moan and Grown-Ups, the Spooky Town Halloween experience promises a fantastical fun day out for the whole family when it opens this October in the enchanting woodlands of Fota Island Resort.

From the moment you arrive stay close together – you never know who could be lurking behind you in the shadows! Make your way through the streets of Spooky Town, passing haunted graveyards and pumpkin patches before arriving at the Spooky Town Hall to meet the local Mayor, the mesmerising Count Derekula! But remember, keep your eyes peeled as there’s lots more amazing characters to meet from Wendy the Witch and Dawn of the Dead to Paddy the Pumpkin and Mumford the Mummy. The inhabitants of Spooky Town have problems that need to be solved, immersive experiences for you to enjoy and tricks and treats at every turn.

Boo the crew and carve out some goulish times this October by making the most of Spooky Town and the beautiful five star Fota Island Resort with an overnight stay for two icky groan-ups and two up-to-no-good mischievous children. Tickets to Spooky Town will be waiting on your arrival and don’t worry, under the beds will be checked for any luxury-loving monsters! After a brilliant day of fun in Spooky Town keep the Little Boos entertained until bedtime with a visit to Fota Wildlife Park, swim time in the hotel’s leisure centre or playtime at the Fota Evening with party games, movies and more. Which leaves the Groan-Ups with time to enjoy a relaxing drink together in the monster-free Amber Lounge. Fa-boo-lous!


Spooky Town will open at Fota Island Resort on Friday, 25th October, and remain open until Friday, 1st November 2019. Don’t be haunted by regret, visit our spooktacular Halloween event!
