Some of Dublin’s brightest designers are working together with Bram Stoker Festival to display screen prints that capture just how wonderful our city is. The exhibition, Dancing in the Moonlight, opens as the festival opens in the Generator Hostel. Damn Fine Print is a print studio and creative agency based in Dublin and you can see the work of Fuchsia MacAree, Lauren O’Neill, Niall McCormack, Peter Donnelly,  Neil Dunne, At It Again, Paddy Lynch, Steve McCarthy, Chris Judge and many more on display. Each of the prints features a layer of glow in the dark ink, which will only be revealed in the dark and you can pick up prints there to bring home.

The Generator Hostel will transform as over 40 stalls of vintage clothing, antique jewellery, vinyl and whatever you’re having yourself take over. There will be live music there to keep you entertained as you browse the stalls, grab a bite of brunch or knock back a much deserved Bloody Mary.

 

Accessible: YES
There is a manual chairlift that brings you from the front entrance down to the bar area and they have a wheelchair accessible bathroom on the ground level too. You can read a full review of the Generator Hostel here.

Maser’s murals can be spotted across the city and, like Dracula, he works in the shadows and is very, very, very mysterious.  For the Bram Stoker Festival, he will be creating his first interactive, temporary, outdoor installation that examines the “the facades of our society and the darkness within us all”.

Accessible: YES
Smithfield Square has a number of wheelchair parking spots around it, beside the Maldron Hotel, in the Light House Cinema carpark and on New Church Street. Even though it is mostly cobblestones, they have smooth paths throughout the square so you don’t have a bumpy ride.
