1. Mother Halloween Ball
Top of the list is Mother’s Halloween Ball featuring a DJ set from Jape and live performance from Bad Bones.
“Saturday the 29th October Mother is hosting a disco bloodbath in her basement,” Mother’s Facebook event reads.
“Prepare yourself for a night of blood stained sequins, subterranean terror and of course, tunes.”
The resident Mother DJs will be joining Jape to spin some scare-tastic tracks on the night, with eerily familiar music like Thriller and Psycho Killer bound to get everyone howling along.
The Mother Halloween Ball will be taking place in The Hub on Eustace Street with doors at 11pm, but tickets for this are very limited so definitely buy them in advance.
As Ireland’s longest running and biggest queer club, Bukkake’s Halloween party on Sunday 30 October is definitely one to check out.
Bukkake’s Halloween party will be taking place in Soder + Ko on George’s St.
“You know the drill by now, its gonna sell out.. get your tickets now. Oct bank holiday weekend is ALWAYS the busiest bank holiday of the year,” Bukkake’s event page reads.

“This month we celebrate our Residents Rides Paddy Scahill & Rafael Mafra with a back to back special. So you get to see both your favourite DJ’s play ALL night.”
“We also welcome back Stephen Dowling for on the top floor, kicking out all the pop and disco jams.”
3. Church Dublin: Halloween Church
Halloween Church will be transforming Hangar, Andrew’s Lane into a coven to channel the powers of darkness on Friday 28 October.
“The witching hour approaches as we mark the biggest date on the Church calendar, All Hallows Eve,” the Halloween Church event proclaims.
