ALTHOUGH LEGENDARY WRITER Bram Stoker spent his formative years in Ireland, he isn’t always seen as a Dubliner.

However, he grew up in Marino, went to Trinity, and worked in Dublin Castle for several years before moving to London – and some of his experiences may have provided inspiration for Dracula.

We went on a whistle-stop tour around Dublin with Donal Fallon, local historian and the man behind, to find out more about the Gothic writer’s connections to Dublin. Watch it above.

Donal Fallon, along with guests Frankie Gaffney, Paul Murray and Lisa Marie Griffith, will be delving further into Bram Stoker’s Dublin in a talk running this Saturday at 3pm, in the Little Museum of Dublin as part of the Bram Stoker Festival. Tickets here.
