A Spooktacular Place to Be

A Spooktacular Place to Be is Úna Woods’ follow up to her popular Have You Seen the Dublin Vampire from last year. In the book, the Dublin vampire (does he have a name?) and his bat friend journey around Ireland in search of spookier places to live than his Dublin park. They hit all the spooky and haunted destinations across the country such as Newgrange, St Michans church, Fastnet Lighthouse and others, but do any of them feel as homely as his spooky and familiar old tree?

Have You Seen the Dublin Vampire?

A friendly-looking vampire takes a night-time stroll through the Fair City’s iconic spots, hopping on the ghost bus, battling the rain on O’Connell Bridge and partaking in Bewley’s finest buns. The nocturnal setting is refreshing and absolutely not scary, showing off well-known landmarks and buildings in a different light and essentially repainting Dublin in a new and exciting palette of purple, deep red, shocking pink, funky orange and, of course, smart black!
