Literary Walking Tours of Gothic Dublin, Brian Showers and Duane
Spurlock - Dublin has spawned three important writers in the nineteenth
century gothic tradition: Charles Maturin (1782-1824), Joseph Sheridan Le
Fanu (1814-1873) and Bram Stoker (1847-1912). These writers contributed
memorable and influential stories that were inspired by and often set in
their native Dublin. Their fictions, which delve into universal and
supernatural themes such as ghosts, vampires and the devil, persist in
popularity to this day. The footprints of these writers and inspirations for
their stories can be traced through Dublin's dark alleys, distilled from its
public houses and unearthed in its churchyards. These writers, whose lives
crossed paths with other notable nineteenth century personalities, were
often intertwined with the history of the city itself. This guidebook
reconstructs the lives of Maturin, Le Fanu and Stoker as walking tours with
the help of maps, photographs and excerpts from their works. Also reprinted
inside are Maturinís 'Leixlip Castle', Le Fanu's 'Ghost Stories of
Chapelizod' and Stoker's 'The Judge's House'; each story illustrated by
Duane Spurlock. Cover art is by Meggan Kehrli and a foreword by Pat Liddy.
Ideal for tourists who have come to explore Ireland's 1200 year old capital,
native Dubliners who want to learn more about their city's spectral past,
and those who just want a mind's eye tour of haunted Dublin. After all, who
can resist a good ghost story? Published October 06.

so that you can start and finish at the same spot. Most are timed at between
one and two hours. The shortest lasts barely half an hour; the longest about

advice and tips about natural features and wildlife and it's all on your
