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.

This is a good time!

They will have you rolling in the Isles in between some very cool stops. I would go again just for the humor. Well Done!

I have to say this was a great evening - we went on the tour with a family with a young girl and the guide, Brent, really went for her and tried to make it as fun as possible. He really succeeded, it was hilarious and she had a great time. We all did! Funny, informative, creepy, full of nervous... More

Can't really add more than the other reviews here, my wife and I really enjoyed what was a lighthearted and enjoyable 2 1/2 hour trip round Dublin at night, rounded off with a couple of pints of Guinness. I found the staff very friendly and polite. Would recommend this to others.

First let me start by saying I do not write scathing reviews easily. Check my other reviews, I try to be very fair but this was HORRIBLE. To begin with I booked online for Monday April 6th at 9pm. Their website crosses out days that are not available. This day showed as open. I then get an email that says... More

I try to find a ghost tour in any new city I visit. This was a great tour with many stories. I'm used to walking tours. This was neat to have a seated tour with many drive by stories and several get out and explore stops. Very informative! Great time! Recommendation, book through the website, you will save money and... More

We booked this on a bit of a whim but were very glad we did. Was worried after reading reviews about jumpy actors and being manhandled by the guide but this was wildly exaggerated. Our guide Nick was friendly and informative with lots of silly jokes and props. The tour was light hearted and included visits to two local places... More
