Really entertaining tour! Just the right amount of scariness for me. The tour strikes the perfect balance between being informative/funny/scary. The guide really interacted with the audience. Worth the price.

Dublin bus must pick the best drivers and guides for this route. They don't take themselves too seriously but they are serious about providing an entertaining experience. There was a group of us. all Dubs and the guide even managed to amuse and inform us, well done DB

What an entertaining evening. Vincent was so convincing, he had us all frightened before we drove away. Not too scary after that. The bus was so cleverly done up, spooky. Driver Francis great too. Great night.

Totally for the craic we went along on the ghost bus tour. Entertaining. Fun. Scary. Everything in one. Blood pumping. The cemetery is definitely spooky and so is under the church. I think I will definitely do this tour again. Loved every minute of it.
