We’re looking forward to four days of spine-chilling adventure, inspired by Dublin’s Gothic past and the fanciful imaginings of creative genius Bram Stoker. Here are our pick of five fang-tastic treats to sink your teeth into at the Bram Stoker Festival 2019.


Sounds of Wood on Muscle: A Modern Radio Dracula

Playful, contemporary theatre from some of Ireland’s funniest makers, inspired by Orson Welles’ radio production of Dracula, broadcast live in 1938 and his mission to perfectly create the soundFX of a wooden stake impaling a human heart…

Fri 25 Oct, 9.00pm; Sat 26 Oct, 6.00pm & 8.30pm


Night Watch

Set in the ancient modern of Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock, Night Watch is a darkly theatrical manifestation that explores nocturnal wakefulness, fuelled by a sense of foreboding.

The water borne installation reflects age-old anxieties of predator and prey, watcher and watched, with tales of the strange and sinister from the high seas. Night Watch is a free event that comes alive in Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock every evening at dusk.

The Craft Screening at Meeting House Horrors

A coven of outcast teenage girls start practising magic in an attempt to exert power using supernatural means. As far as 90s teen movies go, The Craft is unapologetically and deliciously dark, with this ultimate girl gang paving the way for a slew of witch-themed TV shows and movies in the late 1990s and beyond.

Get your best goth threads and chokers ready and come dressed up… after all, we are the weirdos, Mister!

The Craft is part of a series of screenings called Meeting House Horrors, including American Werewolf in London on Saturday night, and The Lost Boys on Sunday night.

Meeting House Sq, Temple Bar, Dublin 2
Friday 25th October 8pm

Anyone with a smartphone and a sense of humour can follow this terrifying and haunting story as it unfolds over the course of a week. As tension builds and the body count rises, this macabre, made-for-millenials adventure will culminate in a shocking climax during the Festival.
