This is a story telling tour brought to you by professional actors on Dublin's oldest Ghostbus. It tells tales of Dublin's dark & macabre history & about Dracula's origins. On this tour you will see and experience Dublin's more daunting sites and get a thrilling insight into some of the most gruesome tales in this fair city. On the tour, you will hear tales of; •Dr. Clossey and how he still roams the corridors of the College of Surgeons with his bucket of human entrails and innards, •The Lady in White, who haunts her cruel husband at St. Patrick's Graveyard. •The art of bodysnatching, and how it was once a lucrative business in our gruesome capital. The tour starts and finishes at Dublin Bus Offices on O'Connell Street. The tour costs €28, a 20% discount is available when bought online.

Lots of laughs

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and extremely funny. If you want some laughs and are not scared of the dark I highly recommend this tour.

Was told by a friend not to miss out on this experience, but she did it 7 years ago. Had very few laughs and even less scary moments. I would not recommend it.

I love ghost tours and generally try to book one when I visit a new city. I'd never been on one on a bus before though and it sounded great fun and a scary cheese fest on the website so my friends and I were really looking forward to it during our weekend in Dublin. However I have to say... More

Went on Friday 20th March, a group of 5 friends up for a scare and a laugh...didn't really get either..this is proper cheesey but taking itself too seriously to be funny!! It's more of a history tour, not at all scary or funny, unless you find the bloke saying stiffy as many times as possible funny..? It was all a... More

My best friend and I came to Dublin for my Birthday, on the bus from the airport Ghostbus was advertised, I recommend booking at least 1-2 days ahead as it's very popular, as we learnt rightly so! The Saturday tour was full and none knew what to expect, but when our ride arrived we knew we were in for a... More

Five of us from Alberta, Canada did this tour together. We all loved it. It was awesome. The effects were really amazing. The staff were so much fun. The stories were totally spooky! The stops on the trip were really cool too. (and maybe a bit scary) Great for giggles! (and maybe some goose bumps and some screams) We even... More

Booked on internet to get a 20% reduction. Bus left O'connell St on time. Tour guide was excellent, full of facts and very witty. Not for serious ghost hunters just a bit of fun !

It's been a excellent experience. Perfect dark atmosphere inside the bus, scary and funny at the same time. Very suggestive the walks at St. Kevin's Graveyard and Christ Church Cathedral's Crypt. Our guide and storyteller, Norman, is a great actor and has involved each one of us in the activities and tales. If we come back to Dublin we'll do... More
