Come a little early for tea, coffee and coddle from our trader, Shergar’s Retreat!

Afraid of spiders? How about body snatchers? Or are flesh eating plants your worst nightmare? Bram Stoker Festival are thrilled to welcome Dublin’s bravest movie fans to the National Botanic Gardens for Creature Features, 3 nights of adults-only horror-comedy screenings within the garden walls. Gather your friends for after-hours shenanigans and natural-horror thrills, with the stunning Victorian glasshouses of the Botanic Gardens as a suitably spooky backdrop.

The ultimate horror-comedy, Arachnophobia expertly blends horror and tongue-in-cheek comedy in this tale of a small California coastal town overrun by Venezuelan killer spiders.
