23/10/2018 The Nightmare Realm named World’s top Halloween Attraction!

The Nightmare Realm in Dublin has been named as the world's top Halloween attraction by Unilad Adventure. 
The terrifying scare event staged in the RDS was voted as the world's number one Halloween experience ahead of Mexico's Day of the Dead celebrations, the London Dungeons visitor attraction, NYC's Village Parade and the Amsterdam Party on Halloween night.

Unilad Adventure described the experience as "a walk-through horror house spectacular which terrorises thousands every year. This is no typical haunted house, the sets and creatures will truly bring your nightmares to life," the citation reads.

The team behind The Nightmare Realm, who were already proudly promoting the experience as "Ireland's most terrifying Halloween scare attraction", are thrilled to see the event now named as the best Halloween attraction in the world by such a popular source!  Unilad Adventure dominates the travel space on social media with 6 million followers on Facebook, 351,000 followers on Instagram, 74,000 followers on Twitter and 17,000 subscribers on YouTube.

This is a huge coup, especially as Failte Ireland is actively developing the Halloween market in Ireland as Halloween is deeply rooted in Irish folklore and the country has “a significant opportunity to claim authentic ownership” of the autumn festival, which would encourage visitors to come here during the quieter, off-peak travel season.

The Nightmare Realm walk-through event, now scaring audiences for its third year in Dublin, after a further 8 years in Cork and 2 in Kerry, takes visitors on a terrifying journey with three different scare houses, (The Witches Hovel, Molly’s Murder House and Smilers Abattoir), gruesome scenes, props and characters from the grotesque and blood-churning to the sick and extreme that will prey on your deepest fears and nightmares. It is not your typical haunted house and is strictly open to adults and teens only.

Those brave enough to venture into the Realm are advised to keep their wits about them as danger lurks in every shadow. It’s a thrilling experience that will test all horror enthusiasts and Halloween fans to the core. Do you dare?
