Town will be painted red – check out the chilling sights of  Christchurch Cathedral, Bank of Ireland College Green, Dublin Castle and other landmarks!

Bram’s Banquet – Deep in the belly of the city, beneath the footpaths and gutters something is rumbling, something is stirring … the oldest structure in Dublin, the 12th century Christ Church Crypt, will be transformed in to a magical and otherworldly dining location.
