The 2019 event took place at Unit 43 Waterford Business Park, Cork Road from Friday 25th – Wednesday 30th October. The event featured exciting new editions, new scary faces and frights galore! Some 3,325 people visited the event. Thank you to all of you for your support.
The House of Horrors is mainly volunteer driven. Our young members are a key part of the success of the event and they turn out in their droves to support us every year. We are so grateful for their participation. As important is that fact that they are surrounded by caring adult mentors, both staff and volunteers, that guide them through every step of the way. Such relationships are critical to a young person's development.
