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.

My cousin had booked this tour, one that I would never have voluntarily booked myself, so I was "forced" to go. What fun! This is an extremely entertaining and well performed history lesson with a dash of "gallows humor" thrown in. Our ghoulish hostess had an extremely quick wit and kept us all on the edge of our seats, along... More

This trip was a little disappointing for the price we paid. Had expected more acting by more performers. While the main actor had an impressive number of lines to perform and the stories are factual it was monotonous with repetitive scare tactics It would have been more interesting if we had been able to go inside the venues as opposed...

I went on this tour just the other night and it was alot of fun. I didn't know what to expect but what I got was a ton of laughs, some great stories about Ireland's haunted places and an enjoyable evening out. I would definitely recommend this tour!

We had high hopes for this as it was our last night in Dublin. It's the first time Trip Advisor has let us down. The tour had an excellent setting in the bottom of the bus. But then they seat you in the top with heavy curtains covering the open windows to 'set the mood.' The actors were wonderful but... More

You just spend time in the bus and when going outside there's nothing to see. The tour just goes infront of places where the actors tell tales. It's really just a theather show without seeing any real scary places at all. You just hace to listen the tour-actors speaking about what's happened in where. Not worth the 25€ even the... More

A group of 5 of us went on this tour whilst in Dublin in June. Was so much fun! Loved the atmosphere, the guy doing it was good fun. He knew how to get the crowd interested and I would really recommend it to anyone going to Dublin!
