RDS, Saturday 9th October - Sunday 31st October

There will be a ‘deadly’ buzz in the capital this October as Ireland’s most terrifying Halloween attraction, The Nightmare Realm, makes a much anticipated return to The RDS in search of fresh victims from the 9 th -31 st .

You’re in for one ‘hell’ of a show as this extreme horror walkthrough was voted the ‘World’s Best Halloween Event’ (Unilad) and the ‘Best Independent European Halloween Attraction’ (Scare Tour).

The malevolent spirits and crazy creatures lurking within The Nightmare Realm walls are ‘dying’ to give thrill seekers a scare to remember and are said to be more cantankerous and bloodthirsty than ever after their Covid hibernation last year!

Within the Realm, victims visitors will be immersed in their darkest fears with three new gut- wrenching horror experiences – The Church of the Damned, Panic Attack and The Butcher Boys.

The three levels of hell start with the ‘Church of The Damned, a disturbing remote and run- down village where satanic rituals abide, and cult members worship the feared ‘Red Woman’. Her dark hold over this unholy church means nothing is as it seems. You’ll have to get out quickly before they convert you to their sinister ways.

Just as you think you have made it to safety, the next level of fear awaits as you enter a real- life Panic Attack. You will be funnelled through a dark labyrinth designed to disorient your senses! This dreadful maze is a concoction of all your scariest horror movies and worst fears manifested before your very eyes. Can you make it through this living nightmare without having a panic attack?

National Concert Hall

In the uncharted territories ahead: What do you want? What happens next? We’ve navigated through the global crisis, and now we find ourselves among inadequate social structures, claustrophobic ways of life, and burned out rhythms. We also find people asking questions about how to embrace uncertainty and the unknown, to sort out the trajectories of their lives without knowing where the world is going. The only map we have for this new territory is what we want. The only option is utopia. Presented by Una Mullally and Conner Habib, in collaboration with the National Concert Hall and multipl
