A scary experience to be enjoyed located in Clontarf, County Dublin

Tourism Ireland

The Bram Stoker Dracula Experience is a uniquely different, most interesting, brilliantly, entertaining, interactive, educational and very scary adventure based on the life of Bram Stoker his great vampire creation (Dracula) and horror in general. Bram (Abraham) Stoker was born in Clontarf, Dublin in 1847. After a sickly childhood he grew up to take a degree at Trinity College Dublin and for a number of years worked as a civil servant at Dublin Castle. However he spent most of his working life in London as secretary to his great acting idol (Sir) Henry Irving and manager of Irving's Lyceum Theatre. Bram Stoker wrote the blood curdling spine chilling masterpiece of Gothic Horror DRACULA which was first published in 1897. The book has both eclipsed and immortalised Stoker himself. It has never been out of print, is the biggest selling novel ever written and has been translated into all the worlds major languages and many minor ones. It is now estimated that over 1,000 film have been inspired by the Dracula story and it has a huge and ongoing effect on the worlds of the cinema, the theatre, art and the performing arts in general as well as the literary world. Arguably it makes Bram Stoker Irelands greatest achiever. Bram Stoker died in London in 1912, survived by his wife Florence and only child Noel. In his native Clontarf he is commemorated by the annual Bram Stoker Summer School and the Bram Stoker cultural Heritage visitor centre.
