Did you know that that Halloween can trace its roots back to Ireland? Halloween originates from an ancient pagan festival called Samhain (pronounced “saw-when”), which marks the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. It’s also the time of year when the ancient Celtic peoples believed that the door between our world and the “other” world was open. So you wore disguises, left out offerings and played tricks to make sure that the spirits didn’t spirit you off to the other world!
Leave the summer crowds behind and visit Ireland at the most fascinating – and spookiest – time of year. This autumn, visit Ireland to discover the origins of Halloween.
