As most of you will already know, the author of Dracula, Bram Stoker was born and raised in Dublin. It took a while (for some bizarre reason) but in recent years we have begun celebrating his legacy with a festival. For obvious reasons, all of this year’s festival is online but there are one or two interesting events still happening.
One of those involves the great grand-nephew of Bram Stoker giving an intimate insight into Dracula’s history within Stoker family lore. It examines Bram Stoker’s life in Dublin and London, separating fact from popular fiction, and revealing the truth about all things Stoker and Dracula.
You’ll be able to join this and many other events from Friday onwards: https://www.rte.ie/culture/
This is actually one of the most beautiful and most visited places in Ireland. Many of Ireland’s most historic icons are buried here and the Museum (closed due to COVID-19) is an award-winning interpretive centre.
Even though the museum is closed, the cemetery itself is well-worth a visit. If you’ve had enough of dead people, then the Botanic Gardens are just next door.
City Language School is right in the heart of Dublin City Centre. Dublin is the proud and vibrant capital of Ireland and with its cosmopolitan and modern feel, it has repeatedly been voted Europe’s friendliest city by Trip Advisor. Dublin boasts strong links with literature, music, dance and storytelling. As you walk through the streets of Temple Bar, you can absorb the musical tradition which spills onto the streets from the many bars and restaurants; truly a city of enormous beauty! Dublin is surrounded by breath-taking natural scenery that will leave you with lifelong memories. It is perfectly located on the eastern coastline of Ireland and is a convenient gateway to the rest of Europe.
