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. « less

My boyfriend and I went away for a weekend in Dublin and decided to go on the Ghost Bus Tour. The leaflet which we received about this did not give an accurate description of what the tour was really like. We expected a lot more from reading the leaflet. It seemed like the tour was put together quickly by a... More

A lovely theatrical event which takes you on a black specially set up bus from centre of Dublin to some gruesome places. The main "guide" was very funny - his associate a good match too. Tour final stop was a graveyard with a pub next door where we got a free drink and then had time to purchase and enjoy... More

We did the tour on our first night in Dublin and we really enjoyed it! It was like taking part in a play. The comedians were really good and really funny and you get To learn a lot about Dublin's history in a very amusing way. I wouldn't suggest it to people who are not fluent in english as they're...

Really enjoyed the tour on sun 13th! A lot of fun frights, laughter and ghoulish Dublin history ably supplied and acted out by Aiden and the girl actress with him whose name escapes me. A definite must see if you like the more ghoulish and ghostly side of the fair city. I really recommend it.

We did the grave digger bus tour on our first night in Dublin and it was amazing. We actually wished we'd done it on the last night of our trip because nothing else has quite lived up to it!

If you find yourself in Dublin (Ireland), the Gravediggers Bus Tour is a must! Our host kept us entertained and spooked from the moment we boarded the bus to the moment we departed. Highly recommend this tour, lots of interesting stories, the only thing that would have made it better is if the sun set sooner, lol. Definite must!!!!

We took a trip on the tour last night and had a great laugh! The actors were brilliant and managed to give us many jumps (and put up with our swearing). The stories and sights were interesting and the stop at the pub was great. A big well done to Aidan and the rest of them!

A must do, great time tour. Incredibly entertaining and funny. The guides (dressed as 400 year olde ghosts and ghouls) make the 2 hour tour fly by. I would have liked a little more history, but I am a geek. Great fun for the money.

I have never ever written a review but I wanted to give my fellow travelers a warning... If you problems being in a non a/c old double decker bus with no fire exit, no light, problems with tight small spaces, then please do NOT go on this tour. My husband and I got on the bus. There was no AC... More
