The Dublin Ghost Bus Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover the darker side of Dublin on this 2-hour bus tour around the city’s most haunted spots. As you cruise around the streets, hear about ghostly legends, body snatching and spine-chilling mysteries from your entertaining guide. Get acquainted with the sites of ghostly apparitions and the frightening stories associated with them. Take a stroll around the eerie St. Kevin's Graveyard and visit the haunted steps of St Audoens Church where the ghosts of Darky Kelly and Lepers still roam the medieval quarter to this day. Visit includes a demonstration of medieval Torture Implements - a favourite with our fans!
  • Be transported between Dublin sites in the company of a guide
  • Hear lesser-known tales of the city's dark side
  • Experience the opportunity to go into an underground crypt
  • Walk between the tombstones at St. James' Graveyard
What to Expect
Make your way to the central Dublin meeting point and board the ghost bus. Settle in as your entertaining guide sets the scene for the evening's tour. Head first for the Royal College of Surgeons to hear about the restless ghost of an unethical doctor who still roams the hallways and about Dublin's connection to Dracula author Bram Stoker. Back on the bus, head next for the haunted steps of St Audoens Church, where your guide horrifies with tales of medieval torture methods. After hearing more ghoulish tales of torture and murder, disembark at the eerie St. James' graveyard. Stroll the spooky site—if you dare—and see for yourself how grave robbers snatched corpses from below ground. Your tour then returns to the original departure point, where it concludes.

Incredibly atmospheric and, although I didn't expect to be frightened there were lots of frights and tense moments. Nick was a fabulous storyteller and kept everyone really engaged throughout. And lots of laughter as well. I had a great time.
