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.

My girlfriend, my brother and his Mrs went on this tour and it was brilliant. Our tour guide was Vincent and he absolutely makes it. A real character who clearly loves what he does and this makes the tour even more enjoyable. Some good scares, really interesting, good history and folklore about the area, some jumps and bumps and plenty... More

I had no idea what this would be like- and that was the best way to go into it. So I won't ruin it for you- other than to say I had a great time and would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Dublin. Hopefully all of the guides are as good as Vincent!

We had a fun time on this tour. You don't go on it to get a nighttime tour of Dublin, as the bus has curtains that are closed 90% of the time, but think of it as a storytelling session about the more ghoulish aspects of Dublin's history, complete with a couple of stops where you get out of the...

If you want a something not too serious for a couple of hours, this is well-organised enthusiastic stupid fun. A little pricey for what it is, but a good time, and you get to see parts of Dublin you would not otherwise.

Had a great tour on the ghostbus last night, thanks to Sebastian for his wonderful story telling skills. It was entertaining, lots of interesting characters (I wish I remember all their names as I really wanted to google them to find out more!) fun games and demonstrations and the creepy monk definitely gave me more than one fright during the...

A great evening's entertainment, very tongue in cheek, with some scary moments. Vincent and Francis were cracking hosts and my wife and I, plus 2 friends had a great night on the ghostbustour around Dublin.
