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. « less

We took the Gravedigger Bus tour on our last night in Dublin. We had taken ghost tours before and thought it would be similar, but this was quite different. Our guide(s) was dressed in costume as a ghoul and throughout the tour was trying very hard to scare us all. We learned a lot about the history of death in... More

I booked this primarily for my teenage son and I think he secretly enjoyed it (very hard to tell with a teenager, the expression is always grumpy). Great stories, great story telling, great atmosphere with lots of laughs! Perhaps a little overpriced, but can't really complain as was a great start to our short break.

This was so well organised, super entertaining, we absolutely loved it! The history and stories were amazing, the characters brilliant and location superb. We would do it all over again. It's a credit to you, keep up the great work! Highly recommended tour. Every cab driver knows how to get you there and it's a must do if you love... More

When I'd seen this bus around Dublin on a previous trip, I will admit that I thought it looked cheesy. However, when I was back in town and looking for a way to pass an evening other than in the pub I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did, because it was an incredibly fun time!... More

Good use of effects, some good stories, less stories than I would have liked. But good presentation and the remaining effect? That I always look before going through doors now, as they jump out at you all the time!

I booked this tour because my girlfriend and I wanted to do something a little different. We travel Europe pretty frequently but rarely do any sort of organized tour. We wanted a quirkier tour that would cover more of Dublin's darker history. This definitely delievered on the entertainment but it could've used some more substance and could've been a little...

We did this tour on the first day of our trip to Ireland and what a way to start the week! The actors were brilliant and so funny. Not at all what I thought the tour was going to be like, but so much better! It was very interactive with the whole audience which was great. And at the end... More
