Dublin City Council Bram Stoker Festival is one of Dublin’s biggest multi-disciplinary arts festivals, with a broad audience of Dubliners that crosses all ages and backgrounds. They are excited to delve into the unknown, the supernatural and the Gothic. The timing of the festival typically coincides with Hallowe’en given the nature of Stoker’s work, so there is of course opportunity to present events which are rooted in the thrill of terror and the supernatural.

Our programme successfully mixes family-friendly adventures with late-night antics for mates, dates and everything in between and can include, but is not limited to; interactive art installations, music gigs, comedy, theatre, spoken word, themed parties, food-focused experiences, literary events, outdoor adventures for children, families or grownups, film screenings, exhibitions, talks and lots more; we want to thrill fun-seekers of all ages.

For all audiences, we celebrate the author and the traditions which inspired him and which have grown around the legacy of his work.

Be adventurous, bold and ambitious. We want hairs standing on necks, horror and terror, devilishly good adventures and unique experiences in interesting locations.

Go on, scare us…!
