“Beautifully moving and then foot stompingly, hand clappingly brilliant!” (Tripadvisor)
After a hugely successful season, hit show ‘Pulses of Tradition’ is gearing up for their Grand Finale performance, which will take place on Saturday 14 September at 8pm. ‘Pulses of Tradition’ is an authentic, Irish, multi-media experience at Triskel Christchurch featuring internationally recognised traditional musicians and dancers.
The show has had a number of highpoints in this its second season, including achieving the number 1 ranking on Tripadvisor out of 75 attractions in Cork, featuring on RTE Nationwide and having attracted record audience figures with thousands having come from Ireland and abroad.
For the past few days, rumours of strange sightings around Cork have been circulating. Reports of deranged, disfigured butchers, sacrificial priests, ancient tribal warriors, flesh-hungry zombies and disturbed serial killers have left locals fearing for their safety.
Tension is mounting after the news that The Nightmare Realm, Ireland’s premier scare house walk-through attraction, will once again be opening its doors on Albert Quay, Cork City from October 4th, and this year the recurring nightmare is going to be bigger and freakier than ever before.
The Nightmare Realm is an asylum of the damned, as testified to by the 50,000 souls who have been traumatised by its inhabitants since it was established in 2009. For those who met with evil clowns Shivers and Badger last year and think they can handle The Realm again, beware. The horror has been amped up even further this year, and visitors will have to brave a thrilling, chilling experience that is not for the faint hearted.
The brand new show will feature never-before-seen characters, sets and themes, including an Inca Tribal forest, a Cabin in the Woods, pig butcher sacrifices, and much more.
Located on Albert Quay (next to the Sextant, across from the Clarion), The Nightmare Realm is only a short distance from both Kent Station and Parnell Place bus station.
If you think you have what it takes to survive The Realm, tickets are available at www.thenightmarerealm.ie priced €12 for students, €14 for adults and €18 for fast pass tickets. Group booking packages are also available on request. What are you waiting for? Opening Hours are Tuesday-Sunday from 7pm to 10.30pm with extended hours at the weekend. Keep an eye out on their website and Facebook page for more details on earlier opening hours.
