Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great way to spend an evening in Dublin. Laura and Dan the spooks did an awesome job entertaining on the ghost bus. Lots of surprises as well as an education, about Dublins past.Lots of improvising by Laura, would defo recommend. Some adaptations I can see with Covid procedures, like not getting into the pub, but actually didn’t matter, except a wee toilet stop would have been beneficial. Overall a great night out,thank you guys 🎉

We had a great time on this tour. It’s a great way to learn some fun facts and good stories about Dublin! The guides were funny and very engaging. We did expect to see a little more of the city, but it is still worth it to do this tour to hear the stories and have a good laugh!

Entertaining and goofy, I really enjoyed this tour.

We stopped at the Kilmainham Gaol, the old City Walls, the Glasnevis Cemetery, and the Gravediggers' Pub. The actors / guides were informative, hilarious, and engaging.

It definitely helps that we ended up with a group of good sports.

Okay tour, but not worth the price. The acting and dedication was great, but the whole setup was off. The bus was stiflingly hot. The windows were blacked out and further covered with thick curtains, which I understand add to the spooky affect, but was oppressive and detracted from the "tour" aspect. The stories felt rushed and disjointed; I hardly remembered any of them at the end of the tour. The little drink we got as part of it was half an ounce of weird green juice that was not good. The main actor/storyteller was having a good time, and I could tell he enjoyed what he was doing. However, the cheap Halloween costume and messy makeup made the whole ordeal feel gimmicky. Overall, I hope that this tour has an opportunity to grow and adapt into a more sophisticated and put together operation. As is, I would rather not spend my money.

The day before we were to go they cancelled us from the tour as they had 2 large groups sign up, so we were out, even though we had booked 2 months in advance. I have yet to receive a refund. Very inconsiderate and when they don't even give you your refund and they were the ones that cancelled, I would stay away from this tour

Having done these tours in other places, I was looking forward to this one, but was disappointed. Whilst Caoimhe was a good actress and was very funny, there were just too many negatives. For a start, she spent a lot of time fake coughing/vomiting. I understand that it was part of the act as a plague victim, but she spent more time doing this than actually telling us anything. The stop outside Kilmainham Gaol was good but the rest were so so. The drink at the pub was a nice touch but I didnt realise we'd spend 20 odd minutes there. Whilst there were some funny bits and some small jump scares, I wouldn't call this a ghost tour, more a gross out comedy tour.

If you dont like the dark, fake vomiting/coughing or swearing, this definitely isn't the tour for you.

Came into this not knowing what to expect and we were blown away but how fun it was! Shane and the rest of the crew on 5/3 were phenomenal and Shane specifically was hilarious. The tour was incredibly engaging and informational. Not your typical ghost tour, but I don't think I'll be able to go on a regular one ever again...

Was hoping for more eerie history. We got a short story at each stop, but we didn't get to go in Kilmainham or the cemetery. The acting was bad, but funny at times. There are better ways to spend a night out in Dublin.

We were all excited to see the Kilmainham jail and Glasnevin Cemetery, but we stop outside the actors told a 3 minute story and we boarded the bus again. Not much on facts and nothing to see. Very disappointed!!!
Book the Kilmainham Gaol directly or the cemetery directly.

We had a family weekend in Dublin and unfortunately could not get tickets to Kilmainham Goal but when doing research say that this trip visited outside and booked up

Without giving to much away it’s an excellent tour, the hosts we had were very good, and kept the group entertained and took us around Dublin on a spooky bus and drink to finish. Well worth ticket price
