Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

Have You Seen the Dublin Vampire?

In an old part of Dublin, right down by the sea, There’s a moon-shaped park with a creepy old tree.
The Dublin Vampire lives there.

The Vampire wakes up as the sun’s going down. He hops on the ghost bus and rides into town.
Have you seen the Dublin Vampire?

A funny, warm picture book set throughout Dublin, home to Dracula’s creator, Bram Stoker.

Featuring well-known sights around Dublin, including The Crescent (Marino), Five Lamps, O’Connell Bridge, Trinity, Grafton St, Natural History Museum, St Stephen’s Green, Bewley’s, Dublin Castle and Temple Bar

“A friendly looking vampire takes a night-time stroll through the fair city’s iconic spots, hopping on the ghost bus, battling the rain and partaking in Bewley’s finest buns. The characters populating the pages are as diverse as they are stylish, with bright patterned outfits that mark them off the dark backgrounds. The night setting is refreshing and absolutely not scary, and young readers will love being involved in the text by the search and-find element and feeling that bit special”

Children’s Books Ireland

“With a wonderful, easy to follow rhyming text, this is a journey through Dublin with a most unlikely tour guide, the Dublin Vampire. A positively delightful story, it is sure to be enjoyed by even the youngest readers. The bright, cheerful illustrations light up the background night palette with colour and happy smiling faces as you turn from page to page, spotting our friendly vampire friend all over the city. But everyone in the book is too busy rushing around to notice him! This offers a quiet suggestion that, if you take the time to look around you, you never know what or who you’ll see. Happy, fun and full of charm, you’ll love the Dublin Vampire”
