Halloween on the Waterford Greenway

The Waterford Greenway is the place to be this Halloween Bank Holiday Weekend.  No less than 5 events are taking place with “The Wicked Woods” with Spraoi at Carriganore (WIT Arena entrance), “Magical Woodland” at Mount Congreve, “Spooky Express” at Waterford & Suir Valley Railway, A “Pumpkin Party” at  Coach House Coffee (The Work House at Kilmacthomas) and the spectacular “Spooky Tunnel” at Ballyvoyle Tunnel.

The Spooky Tunnel

Following on from the huge success of the ‘Spooky Tunnel’ at Ballyvoyle on the Waterford Greenway for Halloween 2018, Waterford City and County Council is organising a similar spooky experience that you won’t want to miss once again this year.
The 2019 ‘Spooky Tunnel’ experience will be in place for the public to enjoy from Friday 25th to Thursday 31st October (Halloween night). This is a Halloween installation which is free to attend. It is a ‘walk or cycle through experience’ that promises to be a sight to behold for all age groups!
Ballyvoyle Tunnel, is an almost 400 metre long brick lined tunnel, which was constructed during the 1870’s. It’s dimly lit recesses and arched ceiling are fantastically atmospheric at any time of year and form the perfect backdrop for a ‘spooktacular’ Halloween themed display.
2018 was the first year of the experience and people were blown away by the sights and sounds of Samhain! Word of mouth quickly spread about the 2018 experience and visitor figures recorded at the tunnel were over twice those recorded for the same period in late October 2017.
The spooky tunnel experience will once again add greatly to other Halloween themed events taking place right along Waterford Greenway including the fantastically atmospheric and scary ‘Wicked Woods’ event at Carriganore Woods, near WIT; the Spooky Express at Waterford and Suir Valley Railway in Kilmeadan and Halloween events at The Coach House in Kilmacthomas and Mt. Congreve amongst others.
