Live your worst nightmare at The Nightmare Realm

~ Ireland’s most terrifying Halloween scare house returns this October ~

~Double the size, triple the terror, new zombie shooting gallery and entertainment zone ~

Are you ready for the ultimate horror experience? The Nightmare Realm, Ireland’s most terrifying walk-through Halloween scare experience, is returning to Dublin and Cork this October and it will be bigger, better and more petrifying than ever before.

Both events will double in size this year. There will be triple the terror with three spine tingling haunts in each location, a zombie shooting gallery, and an Apocalypse food and drinks entertainment zone, where there will be plenty of opportunities to take selfies with creatures of the Realm so you can share the scare.

The houses of horrors has carved out a notorious reputation as Ireland’s premiere scare attraction by pushing the boundaries of sanity and crafting the artistry of fear. Their interactive sets, vivid special effects and live creatures of the damned do everything they can to prey on your deepest darkest nightmares.

The Nightmare Realm has been running in Cork for 7 years and this is the second year in Dublin, and the sickening and twisted interactive experience has already terrified more than 250,000 souls.

Scream, laugh or pee your pants, this will be a complete adrenaline rush and not for the faint hearted! This really is the stuff of nightmares.

WARNING! Strictly adults and teens only. Be warned, this is not your standard (boo) haunted house. This is an audience participation event in which YOU will live your own Horror Movie. Do not wear expensive clothing. Younger teenagers may need to be supervised by an adult if they are faint hearted.

Scared? You should be. But think of the bragging rights you’ll earn when you’ve faced down the fear and survived!

The Nightmare Realm takes place at the RDS Dublin from 29 September to 5 November and at a new venue at the Port of Cork (across from Goldbergs Bar) from 6 October to 5 November. For more information, tickets and the best rates see or social media #NightmareRealm
