Dublin City will ‘go gothic’ for the third annual Bram Stoker Festival this October, running from the 24th through to the 27th of the month. The festival takes the legacy of Dublin horror novelist Bram Stoker and his gothic novel Dracula as inspiration. Highlights this year include a Macnas procession, a VampWire over the city and an underground train journey in a tunnel that was believed mythical. Here you’ll find everything from large-scale spectacles including a gothic ball, to intimate performances in unusual spaces.
