Description: Come and join us on Ireland's only 4D bus ride - The Gravedigger Ghost Bus...
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.

The tour is hilarious while also keeping you on your feet trying not to get scared! The two actors/guides are so funny and great at what they do! They obviously enjoy it! The tour takes you to places you might not really stop by in Dublin and tell you of the legends and scary stories in a fun way! There... More

So let me preface this with the fact I may have misunderstood the actual intent of the tour. I had expected more of a tour of actual haunted locations as opposed to a theater on wheels tour. I try an take these types of tours when available as you tend to get a bit of underground history along with a... More

If you are offended by a foul word here or there then this is not for you. As for the rest of us this is an amusing little tour. There is more history than ghosties! The actress that lead our tour was extremely humorous. You sit in the top level of the bus and have to go up and down... More

I honestly wasn't sure what to expect with this tour and when my friend told me she booked it at first to be honest I wasn't that excited. However the minute the bus opened the doors they had me. The bus looked amazing inside, the actors were funny and committed to their roles. Also I learned so much about Irish... More

We really enjoyed this. Its for teens and up due to alcoholic beverages being served. There are some minor scares, lots of laughs, and you learn some history. At the end you are brought to a really old pub, given a free shot and the opportunity to have a drink and mingle. My parents, husband and i enjoyed it and... More

Two ghosts and an personable bus driver made this a highlight of our Dublin visit. The female spirit of a plague victim acted as our tour guide, while her grave robbing partner provide the thrills and chills. The stop at the Gravedigger's Pub at Glasnevin Cemetery is an excellent touch.

So much fun! Went on this tour with a group of friends and a woeful hangover and couldn't have asked for a better time! It's a funny but still informative tour of Dublin darker historic sights. The ghoulish guides make such an effort to get to know and involve the guests and there's a little bit of audience participation (but... More
