Halloween Ireland 2025

A Magical Journey and Celebration Through Ireland Where Halloween Originated
Castles, Fairies, History, Ghosts, Paranormal Investigation, Storytelling

Austin Ghost Tours and Secret Ireland Tours together have created a life-changing journey to Ireland at the sacred time of Halloween or Samhain as it is called in Ireland, an ancient festival created by the Celts. Halloween takes place between the fall equinox and the winter solstice when it was believed the veil to the Otherworld was thinnest. Samhain was a time to connect with friends and relatives that had crossed over because the barrier could be breached. This is a 9-day journey through Ireland at the sacred time of Halloween.

A few highlights from this unique excursion

Workshop taught by Druidess Dr Rachel Scoazec Lenihan, who holds a PhD in Irish studies, former lecturer in Intercultural studies, and is a Healer, Psychic Soulpasser and Medium.

She s been a death midwife for the last 28 years, also a 28-year experience in energy, spiritual and sound healing, medium, reiki master, Celtic shaman in several traditions, Irish Breton, Welsh and Scottish, and naturopath. Her teachings and Ethos focus on the wellbeing, knowledge, wisdom and activation of people’s best potential.  She will offer us a Samhain blessing; Samhain ritual and we will kindle the sacred Samhain fire. As the Dark Season begins it is a time of the thinning of the veils in between the dead and the living. The purpose of Samhain was to communicate with ancestors and friends. As a psychic she can give our guests’ information from past relatives and friends.

We will visit a known portal within a privately owned Fairy Forest.

Live performance of the founder of Samhain explaining how and why it began:   Tlachtga.
