Open Auditions Will Be Held For 100 ‘Monsters’ To Be In This Year’s Nightmare Realm


Do you take pride in being seriously freaky? Can you scare the absolute shite out of someone at a moments notice? 

If so, we’ve got just the job for you.

The Nightmare Realm, quite probably Ireland’s scariest Halloween attraction, which sees real people dressed up as your worst nightmare scare the bejaysis out of you on interactive locations.

They’re looking for 100 people to work at this year’s events, and all they ask is  is that you are outgoing, willing to embody the role of your character and “instill hysteria on your victims.”

“We’re looking for the weird and wonderful this year to help us take The Nightmare Realm to the next level,” says Karl O’Connor, creator of The Nightmare Realm.  

The characters we have created rely on fearless and shameless people behind them to bring them to life or in some cases, back from the dead – people who really throw themselves into their role and make their character their own.

“We’re all about pushing boundaries and the creatures in the Realm are designed to terrify attendees in lots of different ways – facial expression, blood curdling screams and even the slightest movement made at just the right time.”
