Irish Blood-sucking Faerie

The Ireland of Bram's youth was a place of leprechauns, selkies, faeries, banshees, and ....bloodsuckers.

Abbey at Sligo

Considering his family’s Sligo heritage, it is easy to imagine that Bram Stoker was familiar with this Abbey of Sligo. Although it certainly looks the part, we have seen nothing  to definitively link this Sligo landmark to Dracula.
