Hallowe'en at Ulster Folk Museum

Ulster Folk Museum, 153 Bangor Road, Holywood, County Down, BT18 0EU
Halloween at Ulster Folk Museum


Step back in time at Ulster Folk Museum and experience a traditional 'Samhain' (pronounced sow-an), or Hallowe'en as we know it today.

The village of Ballycultra is not all it seems…it's full of traditions and stories, some of which may give you a fright. While you're exploring keep your eyes peeled for any unusual or unsavoury characters, and listen as they recount spooky tales from times gone by.

Leftover turnips from the harvest will be carved with scary faces to help ward off restless souls, and you can try your hand at our special Hallowe'en crafts. There'll be music in the streets from the Armagh Rhymers, and traditional Hallowe'en fayre to try.

Learn about the gory history of medicine in Northern Ireland with the team from Ulster University's Epidemic Belfast podcast…not for the squeamish! And experience the magical prowess of magician Trevor Price.

Opening hours:

Saturday 29th October 11:00-16:00
Sunday 30th October 11:00-16:00
Monday 31st October 10:00-16:00

An accessible bus will be available on all days, to transport people from the overflow car park up the hill to the museum site.
