Spend Halloween in Derry


Contrary to popular belief that Halloween originated in the United States, Ireland is actually the birthplace of this holiday. The pagan festival of Samhain was first celebrated in Ireland over one thousand years ago! Derry, on the banks of the River Foyle, is where this tradition first started and it now hosts a huge street carnival every year to celebrate the occasion.
