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.

Went on this bus tour on 19th Aug - had been on it last year and enjoyed it so it was always going to be a part of this trip too. We were lucky enough to have the same actors/guides again and all credit to them for putting on a great show. It's a different and entertaining way to pass... More

I love anything to do with ghosts and things that go bump in the night, and the ghost bus was one of the highlights of my stay in Dublin. A lot of scares but just as many laughs, and the actors/guides were fantastic - really enthusiastic, engaging, and, most importantly, made us all jump repeatedly! Unless you are of a... More

We decided to try out the Gravedigger Bus tour our last night in Dublin. A friend of mine had recommended it to us. The bus was a lot of fun! It was all decorated like it was Halloween. The tour guides were great and very entertaining!! I did get a little motion sick while we were on the bus because... More

The tour bus is well decorated and looks the part but the tour does not live up to the expectations of the brochure. For 25 Euros you get two very nice young actors trying to scare a group of adults!!!!. It just does'nt work. At each stop you stand outside and are given a historic piece of history about the...

This activity was extremely enjoyable. The tour gide was extremely enthusiastic and the bus was decorated well. The places we visited were interesting, and it was a nice end to the evening when we visited the Gravediggers pub to finish the tour. The only down side to this activity was that I was hoping for a scary and thrilling tour,... More

The staff, 2 actors and the bus driver were exceptionally nice and professional. With a group of adults maybe we would review it higher but it was difficult to keep there attention. I appreciate when it is summer and bright its not as scary but for €25 we as a group definitely thought it was overpriced, not scary and the... More

This was one of the first events my friend and I did during our trip, and we were not disappointed! The tour guides were hilarious, and not afraid to give it their all! We learned a lot about the history of Dublin, the bus itself had an awesome atmosphere, and we were given free green shots at the end before... More
