See & Do

  • Bram Stoker Festival


Dublin's Dark Side comes alive during four days of living stories and four nights of hedonistic, undead adventures at Bram Stoker Festival 2016. Inspired by the heritage of Dublin-born Gothic author Bram Stoker and his notorious novel Dracula, Dublin city will get gloriously gothic this October 28th - 31st.

The Bram Stoker Festival playfully celebrates the gothic, the mysterious, the after-dark and the thrill of late October as Ireland approaches Halloween and Samhain. The packed programme of events mixes family-friendly adventures with late-night antics for mates, dates and everything in between.

Incorporating a range of events from large-scale spectacles to intimate performances in unusual spaces, along with a whole range of film and literary events, the festival always manages to whet just about everyone's appetite.

Join in this October as the festival infiltrates the very crevices of the city, awakening the dormant gothic that sleeps in the heart of Dublin. With previous years seeing tens of thousands of visitors from near and far descend upon the city for a weekend of wickedly good fun, don't forget to don your cape and fangs.

A devilish mixture of family fun, adventurous arts, major installations, literature, drama and the unexpected, this spooktacular festival has plenty to suit thrill seekers of all ages.
