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 were a group of 4 women friends - this was a really fun way to spend an evening. The "actors" were really good interacting with those of us on the bus and scaring the pants of us! The stops were all good - it was great in the dark - We went in February and I don't know if... More

Just finished the tour. Don't normally write reviews however we have had such a laugh. Not really into being scared.. And paying for the privilege but they had a great way to tell the horrible histories of the prison, castle amongst various other settings. Very entertaining with a lot of humour and a lovely bunch of people who were also... More

We went as a group of 8 girls, not really knowing what to expect. We enjoy haunted tours but didn't really want to be scared stiff for 2 hours. It was run by actors who were amazing. The bus was creepy and atmospheric but the actor who played the main storytelling part was fantastic. He made it very funny but... More

Absolutely loved this tour...well worth every penny. The actors were brilliant, such good banter with us all. It honestly was like Horrible Histories with loads of nasty stories of plague victims topped off with a trip to the pub for the worlds best Guinness? I laughed so hard when my husband "Weak Jim" ended up wearing his prized drink.....I am... More

If you own your own bus, you obviously needn't work another day in your life. The fact he does shows it is an act of passion. -- Weak Jim

This tour was a great way to end my Dublin Holiday, as I took it on my last night here. The actors are so funny and great at what they do. The stories they tell and sites visited are awesome. I highly recommend this tour.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time. He particularly enjoyed me squealing a few times when I was startled. He also enjoyed the stop at the pub for a reasonably priced jameson and coke.

This tour is a must do when you visit Dublin! The guys who take the tour are the greatest performers, they really do get into their roles and make you feel like you are actually there! Absolutely incredible tour and filled with loads of facts but make it the fun way everyone on the trip seemed to enjoy it! And... More

The only thing I disliked about this tour was the weather. It was cold the evening we went. Otherwise, I highly recommend it. The gentlemen (one on the bus and one at some locations) were very entertaining and kept my attention the whole time (not an easy task!) I attended with three other friends that enjoyed themselves as well... Five... More
