Ghoulsley's Manor


Ghoulsleys Manor

Every year, our 200 year old murky mansion falls under the spell of Halloween. Lose yourself amidst the candlelight and cobwebs in this fabulously quirky haunted manor…. But this is no spooky spectacle – no indeed. This is a Halloween experience where you become part of the story that unfolds!




Dragon of Shandon

The Dragon of Shandon will take place at 7pm on 31st October 2019 on the streets of Cork.

Growing bigger and better as it reaches its 13th year, the Dragon of Shandon Parade is the highlight of CCAL’s annual arts calendar, the result of a 3 month outreach and community engagement programme with local artists, over 20 groups and support services working in partnership with local artists to create a cultural hub and provide a friendly and carnival atmosphere within the entire city on Halloween night.

Carrigaline Court Hotel is the perfect location for all as the City meets the County!

We are looking forward to your visit!
