History

The  Nightmare Realm was setup in 2009 in Tralee where it started terrorising people for the first time.

Three years later, in 2011 The Realm moved to Cork City, Navagation House where it really began to grow as a new edgy underground Halloween event. The show quickly became a favourite in the peoples republic and a mainstay of events in the city.

With the construction boom going strong in Cork City, our old building had to make way for change. Unfortunately this meant for us that we have been without a home in Cork since 2017. Despite the continuous efforts of our team, there is a lack of available space in the city and a lack of desire from people in power to change this anytime soon. We hope to bring our show back to the great people of Cork someday soon. We won’t stop the fight to come back!

In 2016 we opened The Nightmare Realm in Dublin, in the prestigious RDS arena, Ballsbridge. The show immediately took off and was received well. Fast forward 5 years, our show has expanded year on year to accommodate the growing audience and demand for our presence each October.

Every year we change the storylines, characters and themes to keep it fresh and relevant with our growing audience. 2019’S award winning show ‘The Devils Crossroad’ was our most well received show to date, Receiving the award for Best Independent European Haunt in 2020.

We always have something big in the pipeline and its no doubt 2020 was one of tough resilience and determination to bring the Realm back to our fans in 2021 stronger than ever, we CAN’T wait to get back scaring with you this haunt season. Let’s celebrate Halloween season together this year at The Nightmare Realm!

We pride ourselves in our innovation, our dedication and our hard work, in order to continually give people greater entertainment year on year.

Come experience our shows, what’s the worst that could happen!
