I went on the ghost bus tour this weekend, and it's fair to say I have not laughed or screamed so much, The tour guide had a fantastic sense of humour and had me and my friend giggling away at the back like kids. The guide is a great way to learn about Irish history, and although conventional tours are... More

I went on this tour on the 1st August with my mum and sister and we all loved it. The bus itself was very atmospheric and our guide, who I think was called Norman, was very informative, interactive and hilarious.The two stops at Christ Church and the derelict graveyard were very good, but I do think the fact that we...

'Old Nick' was our guide and he is worth the price of the tour on his own. I thought the tour would take us on a walk through some old buildings, but we walked only through Christ Church Cathedral basement and a charming old church ruin and graveyard. The bus is an experience in itself as you ride upstairs with... More

Quite expensive but a good couple of hours of tongue in cheek scariness and a trip to Christchurch Crypt and a 'haunted' derelict church.

Finally took the Ghostbus tour, We've wanted to do it for years as it's so mysterious looking!! It was great fun, "Old nick" kept us amused but there were lots of interesting and murky facts about Dublin city too. The crypt in Christchurch was very eerie.... ashamed to say as a dubliner my first time in Christchurch!! Definitely recommend for... More

A great way to spend an evening other than a pub. Nick, a trained actor was humorous and well versed in the ghostly oddities of Dublin, Dracula, and other spirits. Quirky but fun if you take part.

Was on the tour last night and I have to say it was fascinating, scary but most of all, thoroughly enjoyable. Nick is a great tour guide and offers some very chilling nuggets of information as well as some frightening performances. The bus is brilliantly done, so much so that I wish our normal bus service was kitted out similarly.... More

We were on a short trip to Dublin and thought it would be fun to take this ghost bus tour. We booked online an hour or so before. We walked through the rain to get to the bus stop on crowded streets. We saw the bus pull out at 20:01, with the tour due to start at 20:00. Yes, we... More

Miriam B, Manager at Ghost Bus Tour (Dublin Bus), responded to this review

Dear Sir/Madam It is unfortunate that you missed the bus by such a small margin, but the Ghostbus does have to depart at the advertised time each evening in order to keep to its schedule and reach various destinations on time. There is a lot to get through on the tour and we have to coordinate with third parties for... More

My girlfriend dragged me onto this... but I'm glad she did. As soon as we got onto the bus we were met with a scare (I won't give it away!). We had Nick, who was really witty, knowledgeable and an extremely pleasant host. You'd have thought these tour guides would be bored of taking these tours, but it was apparent... More

I think these kind of tours largely depend on how good the tour guide is, and we had Art Kearns, and he was just brilliant. We had met Art a few weeks before we went on this tour - he's trained as an actor. He was witty, entertaining and informative - and confident yet humble - and my wife and... More
