Halloween at Dublinia

‘Dismal, dark, sickly and supernatural things are happening all around medieval Dublin.
Delig Inis theatre group present their annual performance at Dublinia!

Meet the chancers from the Medieval city who have the gruesome job of hauling the poor victims of the Black Death to a mass grave outside the city walls. 
Listen as they tell you the stories of their presumed immunity from the plague, from wearing herbs, to being so holy and wholesome of character. However, they seem to be dealing with a terrible cough and also checking the pockets of the dead for loose change so some might think differently! 
As they head to the graveyard at the church of St. Michael’s with some of the victims, are they being watched, and by who??

Suitable for all ages and happening from Saturday the 28th of October to Friday the 3rd of November.

Performances running every 15 minutes from 12pm to 1pm and 2pm and 4pm.’

In our Viking Dublin exhibition, take a trip back to Viking times.  What was life really like onboard a Viking warship? See their weaponry and the skills of being a Viking warrior. Try on Viking clothes, become a slave and stroll down a noisy street.  Visit a smokey and cramped Viking house.  Learn of the myths and the mysteries surrounding the Vikings and their legacy.  Also, new to Dublinia, find out what really happened during the Battle for Clontarf and the eventual decline of Viking power in Dublin.

Visit the Medieval Dublin exhibition and witness the sights, sounds and smells of this busy city.  Learn about crime and punishment, death and disease and even toothache remedies of 700 years ago.  Enjoy the spicy aromas and so much more in the medieval fair – learn to play medieval games, visit a rich merchant’s kitchen and walk along a bustling medieval street.

See how archaeologists dig deep to uncover Dublin’s past in our History Hunters exhibition.   How does archaeology works with history and other sciences to piece together the jigsaws of our ancestors’ lives.  See Viking and Medieval artefacts including a medieval skeleton (courtesy of the National Museum of Ireland).  Visit the lab and learn how bugs and dirt can be the history hunter’s gold.  See how the past has influenced who we are today.  Finally, see how we are influenced by the Viking and Medieval era in today’s books, movies, fashion and architecture.

The newly renovated St Michael’s Tower, an original medieval tower, is a 96 step climb to the top, where you can see spectacular views of the city. Learn all about the history of the tower and the surrounding parish in our new exhibition at the Tower base.

At Dublinia, see Dublin from a new perspective and come away knowing more about its citizens throughout the ages!
