Enjoy a ghoulish getaway with Expedia.ie this Hallowe’en!

There’s frightful good fun to be had this October Bank Holiday Weekend, with Expedia’s Top Five Hallowe’en inspired day trips

October 2012: Ghost hunters, vampire hunters and horror fans across Ireland will find a treat among the Top 5 Hallowe’en-inspired day tours from Expedia.ie – leading specialists in ‘People Shaped Travel’. Whatever you’re looking for this Halloween, Expedia.ie has something to suit every ghoulish taste to give you a unique, spooky bank holiday weekend you’ll never forget!

Choose from 5 spooktacular tours in London using their famous black taxis. Visit Jack the Ripper’s murder sites, movie locations for Harry Potter or journey through haunted London, seeing ghost filled houses and hearing tales of ghostly corpses.

Take a terrifying exploration of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, where you will also pass castles and areas once dominated by the legendary Rob Roy and William Braveheart Wallace. Hear the haunting story of the massacre of 1692 at Glencoe before stopping for a hearty lunch at the Ben Nevis Woolen Mill, near Fort William. At Fort Augustus, you will have the chance to board The Royal Scout, which houses the largest sonar on the Loch.

Like Jekyll and Hyde, Edinburgh is a city with a split personality. Walk on the scary side with this tour through Edinburgh’s Old Town, where you’ll discover the secrets behind its mask of respectability. Who were these traitors, thieves, and murderers, and how did they come to such a bloody end on the Royal Mile? And why do they still haunt us? A costumed guide will accompany you on this gruesome journey from gallows to graveyard—the final resting place of both the famous and the infamous!

Find yourself immersed in the most sinister events in Scottish history at the Edinburgh Dungeon. Witness the savagery of judicial punishments, the crude and gruesome dissection of bodies, and the bloody massacre of the MacDonalds. Keep your wits about you as you relive the legend of the Boabhan Sith, the lady vampires of the Glen.

Each of these terrifying tours can be booked on Expedia.ie over the Hallowe’en bank holiday weekend, with flights and accommodation that best suit your individual needs. Expedia.ie specialises in ‘People Shaped Travel’ by providing the best prices, flexibility and breadth of choice across hotels, flights, transport and tours – offering a one-stop-shop for all travel needs.

You’ll fly from Dublin Airport to Heathrow with British Airways on Friday 26thuntil Sunday 28thOctober and stay for two nights, costing only €361 with an Expedia.ie saving of €147.
