A "Hogwarts Halloween" In Ireland


This Halloween, muggle families will be converging on Ireland’s historic Ashford Castle for a special “Hogwarts Halloween” celebration where Harry Potter’s magical world of witches and wizards will come to life.

Ashford Castle dates back to 1228 and is set on 350 acres in County Mayo, on the shores of Lough Corrib and the River Cong, with a spectacular backdrop of woodlands, lake, river and mountains. The castle’s secret rooms, hidden alcoves, and mystical surroundings of secluded woodlands give Ashford Castle the ideal setting for magicians in the making. After all, sorcery and magic at the historic castle date back 700 years, so who knows what will happen this year?
