Thanks to Aileen Power for including us in her great post on alternative tourist Dublin. Here’s her take on our walk:
‘… But my goodness, it is cool.
When I took the lecool experience during October’s Bram Stoker Festival, the theme was horror. Guide Michael told the collected audience that he had racked his brains on where to bring us. Then he walked across the road and ushered us into a funeral parlor.
After speaking to the manager of Massey Brothers, slightly reliving a scene in Six Feet Under and asking the weird questions you always wanted to ask a funeral director, we followed him to a steel door of a warehouse off Meath Street.
He knocked. We quivered. The door opened and revealed a sea of monstrous screaming faces – we were in a special effects studio. Aoife and Ben of the Bowsie Workshop showed us around and talked us through some of their scariest models and faces, including work for the film Stitches.
Our last stop was a crypt – in a gothic city like Dublin, you couldn’t avoid the old, cold stone sites on a horror tour. We were marched under Christchurch where a Bram Stoker short story was being theatrically read to an audience.
Their next tour will be completely different – but it will cover pop-ups, new initiatives and generally places so cool not even locals have heard of them yet. Yes, even me.’

le cool Dublin Experience gets a mention in Polly Humphris’s recent Metro London article on The Craic Capital … that’s Dublin in case you didn’t know.
‘GO GREEN: Le Cool walking tours are an ever- changing alternative way to see Dublin and because walking is the only transport involved, your footprint will be anything but carbon. Proudly ‘of the moment’, the tours incorporate modern elements of Dublin life, such as pop-ups, collectives and street-art exhibitions as well as quirky points of interest such as The Waldorf on Westmoreland Street, Dublin’s oldest barber shop’
