Haunted History Walking Tour
From US$23.12
Discover a darker side of Dublin’s history on this walking ghost tour that’s good for both serious paranormal fanatics and those with a passing interest in the supernatural. The tour focuses on the former Viking area of Northside, one of Dublin’s most haunted districts, and you hear spine-chilling tales of hellfire, witchcraft, and hauntings from your local guide you wouldn’t pickup wandering the streets alone.
What to Expect
Greet your guide and small group near City Hall in central Dublin. As you stroll the cobbled streets, listen as your local guide shares local lore. Discover the haunted heritage of some of the city’s most famous landmarks and listen to tales of wandering spirits and blazing witches.
Hear sinister stories of Darkey Kelly, burnt at the stake, the demon known as the Dolocher, and the mysterious 18th-century Hellfire Club. Visit a site considered home to the Gates of Hell before you end your tour at Dublin’s best-known haunted pub, The Brazen Head.

Complete waste of time...buyer beware.

I suspect this was actually a scam. The tour consisted of a guide who would walk us to a location, tell us some erroneous fact, ask us if we had any questions and walk us to another location. It was the single worst tour I've...More

Hi there - thanks for the comments - we are aware of this tour in question and have implemented a few changes to the guides conducting this walk and we are changing it slightly as well for 2019 to improve it overall.

Excellent Haunted History Tour

Andrew was FANTASTIC. What a great story teller and extremely knowledgeable about Ireland’s spooky history. Walk was perfect amount of time and very interesting. Visited very cool sights, too. We’ve done several haunted history tours and this was by far the best!

Interesting, but not terribly spooky

We enjoyed our tour & learned some very interesting history. The guide did pull in haunted history each time, but it was not one of the spookier tours I've done (Edinburgh wins that one). It was a fun way to learn about Dublin and get...More
