The Stoker Dracula Organisation
Worldwide rallying call!

We invite fans, scholars and enthusiasts of Gothic, Horror, Bram Stoker, Dracula, Science Fiction etc. around the world to join us on a new voyage!

In the lead up to the Bram Stoker Centenary in April 2012, the new and invigorated Stoker Dracula Organisation incorporates its 20th International Summer School into a Halloween Horror Festival to be held in the fitting surrounds of the character laden, baronial gothic Clontarf Castle Hotel on Castle Avenue, Clontarf - Bram Stoker's Hometown. The festival dates are October 27th - 31st, 2010.

Be part of it! Be with us! Prepare now!

The Festival represents a bright (or dark!) new future for Stoker Dracula and the Gothic in general. Events will be dazzling, daring, challenging, different, even unique in the chilling nocturnal Clontarf Halloween winds!
