Come and join us on Ireland's only 4D bus ride - The Gravedigger Ghost Bus Tour! - Sight, sound, smell and taste just got horrible! The tour starts at Trinity College where your guide will transport you back some 600 years ago to when the old Augustinian Priory and of course the plague house were there. But just ignore the coughing and listen to his tales of a plague-ravaged Dublin as we explore the weird and wonderful events that have taken place in times gone by, unearthing legends and ghosts from Dublin's past.

Great evening spent in the occasionally scary company of our two guides. Very witty, good interaction with the crowd and not afraid to stoop to the 'Boo!' level and deploy mysterious furry objects in the darkened bus. Not forgetting the spectacular special effects / light...More

The tour was very great, scary and funny at the same time and the actors are really talented ! I am just a bit disappointed that we didn't get to enter any of the monuments. PS: we waited for you a long time at O'Neills...More

Not a serious tour but it is great fun and you get to see a few of the important sites of the city with some unique takes on history and events. It is a real laugh but not a trip for people expecting something serious.

Funny, informative on Dublin’s history, great tour guides/actors. Downside includes that the tour doesn’t get you access to any of the sites it brings you to; only stand outside of the jail and cemetery. The “included” drink is not really what I’d call a drink....More
