We all struggle every year with wondering what to do to get us into the spooky spirit to make the most of celebrating Halloween. Here is a few list of possible ideas to have a peek-a-BOO (couldn’t resist) at.

Crumlin Road Gaol Paranormal Tour

As with their yearly tradition, the Crumlin Road Gaol have already began their paranormal tours but don’t fret as they will be running until the 2nd of November. In the Gaol, there is a 150 year history of ghostly sightings, strange noises and unexplained things happening. This along with the knowledge that the gaol has had 17 men executed is what makes these Halloween themed tours even more intriguing.  The Paranormal tours are 60 minutes long with a guide telling you stories as they take you along a number of supernatural spots of the gaol. It is definitely worth the visit, that is, if you are brave enough.
