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.

We took the Gravedigger Bus Tour on our last night in Dublin and it sure was a great ending for our stay. The bus was suitably darkened and decorated, and our tour guide really put his soul into his act and role as a plague victim of Dublin. He also interacted with us and the surroundings, which lead to some... More

My friend and I were spending our last night in Dublin and wanted to do something fun. We were expecting a scary time, but instead got one of the most fun experiences ever!! We only had one actor, but he did the work of 5! I have never laughed so hard---Highly recommend this tour!!! This guy was a one-man show!!

The entire staff was very enthusiastic. The bus driver was even laughing with us before the tour. I attended this one alone and I was warned to stay in the middle of the group so I don't get picked off. The guide was very informative and amazing in character! This tour keeps you on your toes. I absolutely loved it!!!!!

Excellent tour, tour guides were extremely funny and engaging. Would recommend this to anyone, while not scary it was great in terms of a few jumps and laughs. Little pub you stop at after the tour is also really good.

This tour was a lovely way to while away the evening. The actors had a great time telling and acting out the stories, and the entire crowd seemed to have a blast. I did several other tours on this trip, and this one was by far the best at weaving history and humor in to the same tapestry.
