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.

I took my 9 year old niece on this tour and it was absolutely brilliant! Our tour guide was Damien and he was just stellar! A born entertainer and the kids just loved him, as did the adults, he had us all hanging on his every word.

The tour is really good fun for the adults too and you do learn quite a bit in a really fun way. There are macabre stories, tons of participation from the guests and we spent the whole rest of the day doing the Ghostbusters dance. (I actually caught myself still doing it next morning with my fingers on the commute to work!) It’s very engaging.

I would recommend this for both tourists and for Dubliners themselves, it’s really good fun. My niece is quite timid but she was seat-dancing right along beside me and full of energy and enthusiasm throughout. It’s a great way to learn a bit of history with the kids and have some fun and laughs. The content is appropriate too.

We’re Dubliners and my niece has already asked if I will take her on the tour again later this year so it was a huge success for a first time Auntie!

A great way to experience Dublin. Hop on hop off convenience, with a great mix of local history and fun facts. If you're lucky enough to have Mary as your driver you'll also get some extra little bits of trivia along with some superbly sung songs that have their roots in Dublin. As the locals would say 'Mary's an absolute gas'

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience on a damp Tuesday evening. Our host, Edgar was entertaining, informative and went out of his way to involve everyone with the right mix of gruesome history and terrible jokes!
The bus is very atmospheric and allows lots of opportunities for jump scares and is set up to allow everyone to be entertained en route to the two locations.
Edgar engaged everyone with the spooky and tragic tales by lantern light which added to the atmosphere.
We felt the tour was long enough and good value for money. Thanks again and BOO! 👻

Fantastic experience on the hop on hop off bus. It's always a great way to see a new city and get off at stops that interest you. We had a live commentary from our driver Carla. She was fantastic, we hopped off for one of the offers of free Guinness and the meal deal that are on the tour leaflet, when we hopped on again some time and many drinks later we were happy to see we had Carla again.
Highly recommend.

The ghost bus was really fun, it was a great atmosphere with everyone getting involved. There were some jump scares and of course great information about Dublin’s historical ghost stories, but also lots of comedy and we were laughing out loud. Our guide was Colin and he made the experience really fun, everyone was included and he really knew his stuff and created a good spooky atmosphere. Would highly recommend going if you enjoy scary stories, and it was great being able to see the places mentioned both on and off the bus.

The ghost bus tour is one of the best nights out we've ever had! We're a group of friends from Dublin who went for our friends birthday and my god we had a hoot! Edgar is such a brilliant host, who is so knowledgeable and such good fun. We didn't want it to end, so spooky and learned so much.
5 stars. 10/ 10.

Very nice way to discover the city and get around. Bus stops at the most known tourist spots. We had 2 great drivers Ritchie & Johnny Mac, normaly a tape plays when you drive by places to explain what you see, but they took the mic and told much more. They where also very helpfull with tips and recommondations. Johnny even sang some Irish songs which made the experience even more great
