Halloween 2019: Hettie's Hidden Cauldron

26 - 28 October
Halloween 2019: Hettie's Hidden Cauldron

A slightly spooky experience this Halloween at Malahide Castle

It’s Halloween, the most magical spell-casting time and Hettie Hagsworth's treasured cauldron has been taken!

Without her cauldron, Hettie can’t mix her magical potions. And to make matters worse, silly Hettie has forgotten where she left her vision goggles. Now can’t even properly read her spells to bring her cauldron back!

She's got no choice but to go on the hunt for it herself along with her black cat Salem...

Join us this Halloween for a slightly spooky trail around the West Lawn as you follow Hettie's trail of magical chaos. Pick up an activity sheet on arrival, solve the puzzles, meet our collection of crazy Halloween characters and help Hettie find her belongings. There'll be some tricks and plenty of treats for all the kids taking part.

Saturday 26th, Sunday 27th and Monday 28th October from 11am to 6pm daily.


Adult €7 | Child €12 | Babies (under 1) go free
