Family visit to Cobh this October and Halloween is a must

ghoulsleyCobh in Cork is a great destination for families this October and Halloween with great attractions and fantastic value for money offers.

Cuskinny Court near Cobh is being transformed into Lord Ghoulsley’s Manor from 17th October for Halloween (and then into the North Pole Outpost for Christmas!). Lord Ghoulsley and his mischievous and ghastly groupies invite you to experience a haunted tour of the house in this immersive & interactive experience for families (designed for kids between 4 and 14).

  • Meet Lord Ghoulsley and listen to some of his terrible tales
  • Visit Vladimir the Vegetarian Vampire and hear his woes of being a vegetarian in a world of bloodsucking vampires
  • Wander into Wanda The Witch’s parlour, cast some silly spells and mix some petrifying potions
  • Descend into the underground cellars of the manor and visit Dr. Frankenfarter and help him sort out some behavioural issues he is having with his monster
  • Be on the look out for other ghoulish ghosts lurking in the dim candle lit corners of the Ghoulsley Dungeons

This experience lasts 50 minutes to 1 hour approximately, is suitable for families and ideal for children from 4 to 14 years. Lord Ghoulsley’s Manor is mainly an indoor experience with a small outdoor element so we would advise dressing for the season!  Halloween costumes are of course encouraged.
