Over the past twenty years the Banks of the river Foyle have come alive at Halloween, as it has been the meeting place for thousands of visitors to the city.
Dublin - Derry
Immerse yourself in Ireland's historic past at the impressive Trim Castle - a 12th century Anglo Norman fortress which some would say was where the Troubles all began .... back then. Up next are the awe-inspiring prehistoric tombs at Lough Crew which are older than the pyramids of Giza! Then sure why not relax over a pint or take a stroll in picturesque Enniskillen - a pretty island town on Lough Erne infamous from the troubled 80s just over the Northern Border. Then it's onto Derry City for the Halloween warm up! Don't forget to get your costume ready for tomorrow night!
A beautiful coastal drive takes us straight to Dunluce Castle, thought to be one of the most romantic and picturesque of Irish castles, which is also said to be haunted. Find your own space at the mysterious Giant's Causeway. With its thousands of hexagonal columns it is a source of many a legend, and on a clear day you can see right across to Scotland! Not for the faint hearted, the next stop is the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge* swaying 80ft above the ocean. Then it's back to Derry for the Halloween Hooley, watch out for the witches!
Derry - Dublin
This morning we head to Belfast. It's a real eye opener - see the murals of the Falls and Shankill Road on the famous Black Cab tour of the city. Have lunch in the capital of Northern Ireland while checking out the shops. Enjoy the spectacular views en-route to Dublin where we say our final farewell and reminisce on the ghostly memories!

- DID YOU KNOW?
> Witches and Warlocks have had a long history with Halloween. Legends tell of witches gathering twice a year when the seasons changed, on April 30 - the eve of May Day and the other was on the eve of October 31 - All Hallow's Eve. The witches would gather on these nights, arriving on broomsticks, to celebrate a party hosted by the devil. Superstitions told of witches casting spells on unsuspecting people, transform themselves into different forms and causing other magical mischief.
> The black cat has long been associated with witches. Many superstitions have evolved about cats. It was believed that witches could change into cats. Some people also believed that cats were the spirits of the dead.
So make this Halloween one to remember and celebrate it properly Irish style!

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
