Hogwarts Comes To Ashford Castle For Halloween

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Harry Potter’s magical world of witches and wizards will materialize this Halloween at Ashford Castle, where kids (and adults!) are invited for a special Hogwarts Halloween. Although this program is new, elements of magic and sorcery at Ashford Castle date back to 1228 when the castle was built – a time when magic in Europe was the norm.

With inspiration in the castle’s secret rooms, hidden alcoves and mystical setting among secluded woodlands between Lough Corrib and River Cong, Ashford Castle is an ideal breeding ground for magicians in the making. The special Hogwarts Halloween program will include:

Day One:
-Visit to the hiding place of Dingle, Ashford Castle’s resident owloakhall
-Afternoon Chamber of Witchcraft & Wizardry
-Kids’ dinner in the Dungeon
-George V Table d’Hôte dinner for Mum and Dad
-Harry Potter movie evening

Day Two:
-Isle of Innisfree passage to Inchagoill Island via boat
-Hidden garden treasure hunt
-Kids’ dinner in the Dungeon
-George V Table d’Hôte dinner for Mum and Dad
-Harry Potter movie evening
