October in Dublin, Halloween and much more


October is here now, and with it, one of the most beloved festivities of the year. Halloween has its origins in Celtic Harvest Festivities, and so that, it is widely celebrated in Ireland, the celtic country par excellence.

This year, all celebrations will take place on the last weekend of October. Many are the events and parties around the city where pumpkins, ghosts, witches and spirits take central stage.
