Get a deal you can really sink your teeth into and explore Dracula's world with the "Macabre, Gothic and Bizarre Dublin" walking tour from WalkingTours.ie
It's hard to imagine, but Dublin wasn't always the thriving, happy cosmopolitan city that it is today. Once upon a time it was a dark, dreary place full of misery and horror. (And that was just the 80s!) Dublin has more than its fair share of skeletons in the closet. And under the bed. And I think there might be a few hidden below those floorboards too...
Now you can learn all about Dublin's dark history with a trip into our unsettling past. This terrible tour will show you the macabre, gothic and bizarre side of the city. Discover the origins of Halloween, see where Dracula's creator hung out and find out why a picture can tell more than a thousand words if the man in it is slowly getting older... With ghostly and gruesome stories galore, you'll stalk through Trinity College, City Hall, Dublin Castle, the Medieval City Steps and the Brazen Head pub before you creep into St. Michan's Crypt. There you'll have the chance to shake hands with a mummy before setting sail for the Jeannie Johnston, a famine ship moored at the mouth of the Liffey, where you'll hear about cholera burials of the undead and a final salute to Dracula. The price covers transport around the city, entry to St Michan’s crypt and entry on board the Jeannie Johnston. With this tour you'll hear chilling extracts from Ireland's greatest gothic novels and see the city that inspired them. And all for just €10? You'd be batty to miss this fangtastic deal!

Excess hair is rarely a good thing. I'd even go so far as to say that, unless you're unexpectedly trapped in the Arctic, it's never a good thing. For most of us it's certainly not the most attractive option, which is why we go to such lengths to get rid of it. Whether it's plucking, waxing or shaving we fight day in, day out against unsightly hair. Most of the time we can cover up...

Two minutes later, people are liking them on Facebook. One social network has become the...
