Halloween is the one holiday (apart from Paddy’s Day obviously) that the Irish can claim as their own. So why not celebrate in style?

After a year off, the Danse Macabre: Halloween’s Monster Ball is coming back from the dead and will be giving the RDS Concert Hall a spooky makeover on October 27.



Dust off the cobwebs for a night of ghoulish glamour and decadence at the grand Concert Hall. Your hosts? None other than the bewitching burlesque temptress Bonnie Boux will be appearing, as well as Beelzebub, prince of all things unholy.

Live music, DJs, dance, variety, immersive performances, cabaret and the occasional sacrifice…nothing major. Standard enough stuff really.

Make sure your scooby senses are up to scratch because there are bound to be strange goings-on. Expect carnival and Halloween games but with a touch of the ‘cirque du freak’. Other phantom faces you might bump into (or should I say bump through? Ghost humour…) include the Brides of Dracula and the illustrious Sanderson Sisters.


Take part in Ireland’s biggest time warp after learning the moves from the experts at Rocky Horror Ireland, pay a visit to Madam Mim’s fortune booth (if you dare) or shriek and shout at karaoke. Either way, there will be enough rí rá agus ruaile buaile to wake the dead.

The event is a strictly fancy dress event so join the beautiful and the damned and cross over to the other side. You know you want to. Find out more and book tickets here.
