Taste the Island- A Celebration of Our Food and Drink in Ireland. We have gone way back to bring you something really traditional and special. We present to you the 1900s Irish Halloween Experience!


Our event begins with your event host giving a brief history about the origin of Halloween. You will be taken on a journey back in time to 500BC when the Halloween festival first began. As our guest, you will learn the origins of the word “Halloween” and other interesting facts, like the name that the Halloween festival was called in ancient times.


From 500 BC, you will travel to the next stop on our history timeline, the 1900s. We will share with you the traditional customs that both adults and children enjoyed. You will hear about the old superstitions that people lived by and most importantly how you would have found your future husband or wife in olden times.


There will be an overview of the history and origins of Halloween games, which are older than you think. “Bob for apples” is one of these games. We will provide a demonstration of how it works and ask our guests if they would also like to try!


Once our journey through history and traditional Halloween games have concluded, our guests will be ready for the Halloween feast! Our traditional Halloween menu is served with dishes from 1900s Ireland and also features traditional Halloween dishes. Your host for the event will explain the history to each menu item throughout the feast.
