Enjoy a wicked Halloween Break in Redcastle

Thursday, 20 September 2018
Planning a family getaway for Halloween? Grab your capes, broomsticks and magic wands and prepare for a magical October midterm break at the Redcastle Hotel! Vampires, witches and ghouls also deserve a holiday, after all.


Considered the best Halloween festival in the world, Derry’s is indeed a celebration not to be missed. Running for over a week, from 26th October to 3rd November, they have in store countless activities and events for all tastes and ages. Some of the most anticipated are, undoubtedly, the Awakening of the Walls and the multitudinous Halloween Parade.

The Awakening of the Walls is a powerful visual show in which the historic Derry walls become the main stage from 28th to 30th October. With over 30 installations and performances from artists from all over the world, it is bound to leave everyone speechless. On 31st October all monsters, witches and other beings of the underworld will take to the streets of Derry to parade while being cheered by locals and tourist. Right after, the sky will be alight with the celebrated fireworks finale, a show of light and colour over the Foyle.


After so much excitement and fun, one’s certainly looking for a good place to rest. Follow the Foyle into Donegal and treat your family to a spooktacular family escape at the Redcastle Hotel. Our Halloween Offer includes 2 nights Bed & Breakfast, dinner in the award-winning Edge Restaurant on one evening plus a supervised movie night on both evenings for the kids from 7pm to 9pm, all from only €358.00 per room (price based on 2 adults and 2 children). 

The Redcastle Hotel is just a 30 minute drive from Derry, on the shores of the Foyle in Inishowen, which makes it the perfect base for your midterm break in the North West of Ireland!


Redcastle Hotel’s wicked Halloween Carvery is back by popular demand on Sunday 28th October! Get ready to enjoy a devilishly good 5 course carvery meal, with drinks from the witch’s cauldron and face painting and colouring for the little ones. And remember to get your best costume on, because the best dressed adult and kid will get a fang-tastic prize! 

The Halloween Carvery will be served by our scary staff from 12:30 to 4:00 pm on 28th October. Price is €26 per adult and €10 per child (kids under 4 are free of charge). Booking is essential and a €10 deposit per adult is required. Please contact or call +353 74 938 5555 to make a reservation.
