According to legend, Samhain, the Celtic festival that we now call Halloween, originated here in Co. Meath in the Boyne Valley. Samhain marked the harvest and was a time of transition, with feasting and celebration as the long winter nights approached.

One place in County Meath that has a strong association with Samhain is the Hill of Tlachtga, now the Hill of Ward, near Athboy. Legend has tells how a great Samhain fire festival began here many centuries ago.

To this day the Boyne Valley has remained the home of Halloween, the modern equivalent of Samhain. Whether is ‘Fun by Day’ or ‘Fright by Night’, spine-tingling fun awaits for young and old alike.
