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.

We had a hilarious time on the tour. Great banter from the word go, the actors themselves are fantastic! Perfect mix of history, comic humour and spookiness! Taking about two hours ( which flies by incidentally!) the tour takes you to a few renowned spooky spots in Dublin and takes in the wonderful gravediggers pub! Definitely up for doing it... More

A great experience with great actors. An absolutely "must do" in Dublin. A night tour in a scary bus with very good and funny actors that provide you a two hours night experience in the old Dublin era

The guides on this tour go all out. They have great makeup, costumes, and really get into their part. They made this tour a hit for us. It is more about fun and scares than historical accuracy, so if you want some science or séance, look elsewhere. The bus seating is up some stairs and there is some walking so... More

This was one of my favourite things to do in Dublin. It was a bit like a comedy show based on history. The actors were so entertaining and they made it easy to interact with the other people in the tour group. It is worth the Euros for a night of great laughs.

What an amazing night a spooky tour through Dublin's' haunted past. The two actors kept us entertained & a little frightened. Highly recommend this tour.

We were unsure about whether to take this tour or not, but in the end it was great fun. The main actor/guide (forgot his name unfortunately) was hilarious and could very well be the love child of Ed Byrne and Jim Carrey :) You'll get a couple of frights if you're easily scared but nothing too serious. The tour bus... More

Guides were both funny and intelligent in the way they presented the history of Dublin, making sure they included the whole group in doing so! The bus was very well decorated and provided for heaps of laughs. I would highly recommended to anyone!

The tours takes a couple of hours and finishes with a drink at the Gravediggers pub, no surprise there finishing with a drink in a pub in Ireland. The actual tour is really good entertainment, the actors (tour guides) are excellent, really keep you on your toes. Very well organised and orchestrated by the two guides. The complimentary drink at... More

I could write about how awesome this tour is and how for 2 hours we were genuinely kept entertained - but I would be wasting your time, when you could be on the bus yourself having a cracking time on this tour! Go book your tickets, you won't be disappointed! This was the highlight of Dublin for us.

The tour was great. Our tour guides were amazing and funny. The stops we made and history that we learned was great, all while being entertained. I like these kinds of activities.
