Ring in Spooky Season at Slow Sundays in Limerick’s Medieval Quarter on Sunday 23rd October

On October 23rd, Slow Sundays return to Treaty City Brewery on Nicholas Street, this time with Autumnal flavours and a Halloween twist.

Co-Founder of Slow Sundays, Catriona O’ Donoghue, says “As the weather gets chillier, we know it’s tempting for people to stay home so we want to give them lots of reasons to wrap up, get out and come get cosy at the brewery where we’ll have yummy seasonal treats and themed workshops to keep you entertained, as well as beautiful stalls to browse from local small businesses.”

After selling out at the past two events, the Paints & Craft Beers Experience is back on the menu. This is a hands-on workshop where you’ll create your own colourful Autumnal masterpiece. Word of warning though, this one books out fast.

In addition, Lumen Street Theatre will be running a Spooky Hats workshop on the day. This is an opportunity to get creative and to ring in the Samhain season. You can even wear your hat creations at the Samhain parade which passes through Nicholas Street on October 29th.

When your creative juices have dried up, it’s time to browse the stalls where you can expect to find beautiful paintings and prints, unique pressed flower art, preloved and vintage clothing, hand-poured candles, and handcrafted jewellery. There will be seasonal baked goods from local chef, Keith Pigott; warm smoothie bowls from Limerick startup, Goya Bowls; specialty coffee from Limerick Roastery, Eleven14; and, locally crafted “Dragon’s Blood” from Treaty City Brewery (if you dare).

Co-Founder of Slow Sundays, Stephen Cunneen, says “We launched Slow Sundays back in April to help revitalise the Medieval Quarter. We’ve been blown away by the public’s positive response to this easy-going Sunday morning offering but, as winter approaches and with the devastating closure of our next door neighbours, Bakehouse 22, it’s more important than ever for us to keep diversifying so that people keep supporting the local businesses here in the Medieval Quarter.”

The next Slow Sundays is on the 23rd of October, from 11-3pm. All information can be found on the “Medieval Quarter Limerick” Facebook or Instagram Page.
