As summer comes to a close and the leaves start to turn golden and orange, there will be sad faces all around as the routine of school and work is back in full swing. Those sad faces will soon change into scary faces as Halloween is just around the corner! 

The Halloween break is a great time for families to take a trip to celebrate this spooktacular holiday and County Kerry has the key to #UnlockTheMagic this Halloween. With a variety of spooktacular hotel packages on offer and plenty of seasonal activities, there is lots to see and do to really get into the spooky spirit this Halloween in Kerry!


Killarney Pumpkin Farm


Visit Killarney Pumpkin Farm and pick your own pumpkin from their pumpkin patch. If pumpkin picking isn’t your thing, there’s a lot of other activities to choose from. You can make your way through the corn maze, hear ghost stories at the haunted ghost bus, or if that’s too scary for you, meet the farm’s alpacas, just name to name a few. 

There are also plenty of spots for refreshments on the farm. The Patch pop up serves Halloween themed food and beverages while you’re pumpkin picking. The Farm Café is great for some baked goods while The Farm Food Bus provides meals.

Admission is €12.50 per person with family bundles available. Tickets are available on their website.

Sandy Feet Farm


If you aren’t interested in the scary Halloween events then Sandy Feet Farm’s Halloween Hoedown might be the perfect event for you! This is a fright free family-friendly event which is suitable for all ages! All children must be accompanied by an adult, and all adults must be accompanied by a child to attend. Their friendly Halloween characters will entertain you with an interactive story, singing, dancing and more! There will be a limited number of animals on the farm, the playground and sensory garden will also be open. Their Café will be open with Halloween themed sweet treats and drinks.
