Leap is the capital of Halloween.
And if there is one thing that can make Halloween better as a holiday, it’s a Halloween market.
This October, the Centre of Excellence for Climate Action and Sustainability (CECAS) aka Myross Wood is turning up the spook factor and hosting a ghoulish day out for all the family in their spacious courtyard.
You’ll find craftspeople and artists selling crafts, vintage clothes, plants, produce, and organic food, with face painting and storytelling by the fire with Conor Buckley.
The market, which takes place on Sunday, October 29th coincides with the ever-popular Scarecrow Festival in Leap. So once you’re done listening to scary stories and getting your face painted you can head towards the village for some Samhain activities.
