About
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.
Dublin, County Dublin, Ireland

Amazing experience! If you enjoy history with a dramatic comedic Irish wit, this is a must go bus tour in Dublin. Wonderful actors take you through some dramatic history all the while with a bit of levity. The driver was great providing a smooth drive throughout the multiple locations visited throughout the city. It was great to stop in to Kavanaugh’s, a historic multi-generational pub right next to Prospect Cemetery. Thank you GraveDigger crew for a great night out!

The tour was amazing! The performers are incredible and consistently engaging throughout the tour. Plus, the stories and information were interesting.
You can also trust that the experience will be good. There were some issues with the bus because of how cold it was the day we went, and they improvised beautifully. I do not doubt that our tour was just as fun (and funny!) as any other.
Be aware that there are flashing lights and strobe lights.

Funny tour with great performers. The bus had some trouble but the actors made it work, and the tour was great. You can tell they really care about the history, but the acting & scares were also great. It was a really fun night with lots of laughs, but we also learned something.

The Ghostship tour was amazing it was so much fun and interactive, loved learning about the history around Dublin. Lydia is an incredible storyteller, she made the tour so enjoyable. A lot of laughs and jump scares throughout the tour. Loved how the bus was decorated, great way to start Halloween.

This tour was amazing! So much fun, and interesting stories. Lydia was the soul who had the bad luck to be our guide and she did her job very well! The atmosphere on the bus was spooky and we learned all about the plague. If I'm ever in Ireland again, I would definitely book the famine tour. I was really looking forward to this, and was not disappointed. Congrats on such a fun idea for a tour!

My 14 year old daughter and I went on the Gravediggers Gost Bus tour and we had the best fun. All down to the amazing Lydia who played her part brilliantly. Had us laughing all the way with her great stories. Dont think anyone got off without a Dublin slagging. Well done Lydia
