Boo At Ballymaloe

It is with great sadness that we are announcing that Boo at Ballymaloe will not be returning to the Grainstore. We wish Alice and Noggin theatre all the best going forward.  It has been a wonderful experience bringing Boo to life with Alice and her team and we hope to work with them again in the future.  


The spooky interactive experience for all the family will completely transform the East Cork venue as a host of exciting characters ensure all guests will be spooked and spellbound in equal measure. 

Treat your little spooks to some Frightful Family Fun.

The family friendly event will run daily throughout the midterm break from 10am to 5pm, with earlier shows from 10am to 1pm catering for younger trick or treaters. Once the clock strikes 2pm, the lights will go down and scare levels will increase to cater for braver souls. All will venture through a maze of frighteningly realistic sets, meeting interactive characters and solving clues as they complete their mission to find the Prince and send him home.

Everyone is encouraged to come in costume and will be provided with a booklet and map which will help them along every step of the trail.

  • Tickets €18.00 per person 
  • Times 10am - 5pm daily

Boo! at Ballymaloe; A Halloween Adventure Experience

Have you the courage, the daring do
To brave the dark lands at Ballymaboo?

Coming this autumn at Halloween
Give it a go, It will be a scream!

Find the prince, the Jester’s distraught
The Prince isn’t doing as he aught
He’s wandered away to a foreign land
That is not what the king had planned

He should take up the crown-like many before him
Dress in jewels and silks, let the people adore him
Hike taxes, give orders, stomp and shout
If he cannot be found the line will die out.

The Jester must find him and bring him home.
But he cannot do this all alone
Witch Winnie will help and you can help too
Find Zeezee Bojangles, she’ll know what to do.

Be prepared for strange things and clues to be found
Locked doors must be open, unfamiliar abounds
To find Prince Murragh you must take heed
But same as in life you have all you need

To brave bold Pirates and gain Murragh’s trust
This is important as trust is a must
Use patience and wit , make notes as you roam
To get to the Prince,
Will you send him home?
