The actors were really great. It taught me a lot about the history the bus was interesting and enjoyable. My favorite story was the one of the killer pig. It is a great value as if you buy the bus tour you get a walking tour for free. Really great value. I went on this expecting to hear more about... More

The Dublin ghost tour was great fun with plenty of scary and interesting stops, visiting graveyards and the crypt in Christ Church. Great to do with a group of friends and a good night out and its something different. Overall it was great fun and id recommend it to anyone who likes a fright :)

I'm only sorry we didn't do this sooner. Along with being funny, creepy and well acted, it showed many sights from a unique perspective. If we'd been there longer we would have visited many of the tour's locations again, to learn more. Also a great way to learn and get more interested in Dublins rich history. Thank you for a... More

Eventually had a night out on this amazing tour. For a reasonable fee were treated to some scary moments and brought to the home of some of the most famous ghost sites in Dublin. Our host was very entertaining and made the trip worthwhile. Afterwards we finished the night with a nice meal in one of the many fine restaurants... More

This was a fun way to spend the evening. The bus looks really nice, dark, with curtains and lots of pictures. The actor tells some thrilling and interesting stories. It wasn't scary, but it was lots of fun nonetheless! I especially enjoyed the walk round the church and cemetery :-)

The ghost bus tour really topped of a great evening in the city for a group of 9 Dublin women on the town!!!! We hopped on the bus as part of an alternative hen party and had a ball on board the pretty lushly decorated Dublin Bus...great story telling, scares and cool stuff to see... and to top it off...
