About the Bram Stoker Festival

If Dublin is a destination for you, check out the Bram Stoker website for up to date travel information to make your trip a breeze.
A Dublin City Council initiative, the festival takes the legacy of Dublin horror novelist Bram Stoker and his Gothic novel Dracula as inspiration. The festival incorporates a range of events from large-scale spectacles including a gothic ball, to intimate performances in unusual spaces and a whole range of film and literary events to whet the appetites of all. This year the festival intends to infiltrate the very crevices of the city, awakening the dormant gothic that sleeps in the heart of Dublin.” -Bram Stoker Festival website
