Worth it
Carl was amazing and so informative! Had a great time learning about the history and some of the ghost stories of Dublin. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the sights of Dublin and learn some cool history at the same time.

Guide Never Showed
The guide never showed up. A real poor reflection on both the company and TripAdvisor. When I tried to contact the company through the TripAdvisor app, no information was displayed. A real disappointment all around.

Tour guide did not show up ! Terrible experience with SANDEMAN Tours
We rebooked with Unearthed Tours Dublin and had a fantastic experience / tour . I recommend the Dublin dark side walking tour but book with unearthed tours for a fantastic guide and a reliable company.
Avoid SANDEMAN tours at all costs

Perfect evening activity in Dublin!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Excellent tour with so many interesting, gruesome, historical, funny, outrageous stories told across multiple locations in the city. Ciaran is a brilliant tour guide who knows his history and is a fantastic storyteller!

Perfect evening activity (especially during these weird times) Group size was small and we were able to socially distance and felt safe throughout. Would highly recommend!

What an excellent tour!
Me and my friends did the Dark side of Dublin with Adam as our guide and I must say it was fantastic. It was my friends first time in Ireland and I could not ask for a better way to show them the interesting parts of town as well as a little history.
Adam was funny and friendly and obviously enthusiastic about the things he talked about which made it even better to listen to.
I came across the tour by accident here on tripadvisor and I am so happy I decided to go for it. If you're looking for a fun and interesting evening in town I cannot recommend it enough!

My husband and I took the Dark Side Tour with Jason and had a really great time. Jason has a great sense of humor and was constantly making the group laugh. I take a Ghost Tour every time I travel and this one was unique in that it wasn't trying to be scary but to show the crazy violence of the city and make the group feel comfortable through humor.
