He travels to well-known places all over the country, including St. Michan's church (where the mummies sleep!), Kilkenny Castle, the Hill of Tara, and visits the giants at the causeway. But, when his travels are done, he decides that home is the most spooktacular place to be!

In his moon-shaped park filled with silver moonlight,
The Dublin Vampire wakes to the same familiar sight.

‘I’ve spent so many years in this creepy old tree,
Is there a more spooktacular place to be?’

He agrees with his bat that it’s time to explore
‘Let’s go on an all-Ireland ghost bus tour!’

the Dublin Vampire is back and this time he’s looking for somewhere he can feel more ‘spooktacular’. He travels around Ireland, from Skellig Michael to Newgrange, looking for spooky places, but in the end finds there’s no place like home. The short rhyming story is perfect for very young children and the illustrations are delightful. Don’t miss the end papers with their tiny smiling pumpkins and winking ghosts

Ireland's Independent

Our favourite Dublin Vampire returns in this fabulously illustrated picturebook. The inky scenes perfectly capture the Dublin Vampire’s night-time adventures as he and his friends decide it is time to venture outside of Dublin. Boarding a ghost bus, they head off across the country, taking in well-known spooky Irish landmarks like Loftus Hall and the Hill of Tara. The rhyming text will carry young readers all over Ireland with the gentle message that perhaps there is no place like home. A fantastic seasonal read!
