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

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.

Wow! A great evenings entertainment. We learnt about the gruesome history of Dublin as well as a lot of humour along the way. I strongly recommend this tour as it was the highlight of our trip. The guide and main actor is an extremely talented man!

I didn't know what to expect and they sure made it good, the tour guide was funny but he coughed all over us trying to give us the dreaded disease (LOL) and they wanted to see what it was like to dig up them corpses, (I'll join) All the actors tried to surprise or scare us. I had a hand... More

Did this with a few friends and really enjoyed it. The ticket was €25 and you get a free walking tour included with that too (haven't don't that yet). The ghost bus tour was very well done, the guides really make it with their story telling! The pick up point was near Trinity which was handy. There were a few... More

October 2015 My group of eight just got back from our trip to Ireland. Three of us went on this tour and it was a lot of fun! I have done different ghost tours and this one was not quite what I was expecting. It was more entertaining than spooky--lots of laughs! We were driven around on a decorated bus... More

My friend and I hopped on this tour at the last minute and were so excited to get on. The crew is very nice - there's some great jokes and our guide was really good at thinking on his feet and sealing with a loud and funny crowd. It was a night full of interesting stories, bad jokes and jump... More

What an enjoyable experience after a few frights! Worth as visit for anyone who likes to try something different. Tour leaders where great. A mix of comedy and being scared. Fantastic end to a great weekend in Dublin.

It started out great and the entertainment was a good laugh too. The downfall was that the road to Killmainim jail was closed off and we could not drive to the place, which was unfortunate but no one was notified about this and we just headed straight to the gravedigger pub. We weren't apologised to or no bit of refund.... More

High energy tour of a few of Dublins eeriest locations. Tales of plague, rape and and murder! Word of warning, wrap up warm. The bus has non-closing windows and a lot of the tour is outdoors! A little bit pricey at 25 euros per person but the tour is 2 hours long and the guys do an excellent job.

Great tour with a fun twist. These gentlemen put on a great show. High energy, great stories, fun locations and historical relevance. As a note, there are a few jump part. Fun for all with a adult special treat at the end.
