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.

Myself and a friend decided on the tour for the sunday night as something to do other than pub crawls. Had a good laugh, we had a very small group but made it more fun as we could all interact.

Two interesting hours with good actors who tell horror stories with a bit of sarcasm and irony too. The tour is enjoyable for the whole family because it's not too much scary. The beautiful thing is that at the end of the show the bus stops in front of the cemetery, there is a pub called gravedigger too, and both... More

We took this tour on our first night in Dublin. I was skeptical to go, but it was something my wife wanted to do, and I am so glad that we went!

The tour around Dublin in the modified bus was fun, and the stories are good. There were some scary parts, but overall it was more funny than spooky. The actors are excellent, but spoke too fast for me to understand all that was said.
