Owner description: 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.

As big horror fans, myself and my other half have been wanting to try one of these tours for YEARS but never got around to it before now. We had so much fun, thanks to the gothic bus interiors, brilliant acting and up-for-the-craic star driver. We learned more than we ever really wanted to know (yuck) about Dublin in the medieval old plague times, famous ghosties and ghoulies, and how some unfortunate Dubliners met their fate. With stop-offs at key sites of interest such as Kilmainham Jail and Dublin Castle (plus a very tasty pint of black in The Gravediggers pub in Glasnevin), this is possibly the best way to get yourself orientated before hitting the main touristy spots of Dublin. Get onboard IF YOU DARE!!! No, really, do get on board. An absolute steal for 2 hours of hilarious horror.

The "Spirit Guide" is FANTASTIC - fun, enjoyable evening had by all. Don't expect fancy horror movie style special effects, just great storytelling (for which the Irish are renown) and fantastic "craic".

We went on this 2-hour tour May 10, 2017. It was a clever, and quite comical, way to discover some of Ireland's ghoulish past. The actors and the sites we visited made this one if our favorite and fun Dublin experiences. Great job guys!
