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.

This tour is great if you are rude and inconsiderate - which most people on our tour were. We had been queuing for 20 minutes in the cold before the tour was due to start only to have people push in front of us when the bus arrived. We couldn't see a single thing down in the crypt for the... More

We loved our ghost bus experience, Nick, our host was extremely knowledgable, witty, charming, and provided a wonderful folk history of Dublin, that we, even as Dubliners had never heard before. The eery St Kevin's graveyard and church really topped it for me, even though I actually couldn't wait to leave, it really was so creepy! An authentic Irish, very... More

Although our expectations were different, we had a fun night out. Frances did a great job and one could see that he loved his job. For those who want to book this tour; when you're in a good mood to start with, I would surely recommend it. People with a nagging nature better stay away...

The Ghost Bus was a perfect blend of historical fiction, cheap thrills and authentic sight seeing. I am a native of Dublin and was recommended this tour by friends who are also natives who enjoyed ten tour as work parties, on dates or with friends. Naturally, sightseeing in your own city is ordinarily not a thrilling idea, but this tour... More

The tour guide and driver were absolutely fantastic on this trip. Frances the driver, and Vince the guide, really did a wonderful job making everybody interested in the background of Dublin. The places that we stopped at were great as well. Going into Christchurch underground at night was definitely spooky. I would highly recommend doing this tour once if you're... More

Myself and some friends did the tour on the 13/2/14. The tour guide, Nick, was charismatic and engaging from the outset and full on interesting facts! Tour lasted about an hour and a half, an evening well spent! Cannot recommend this highly enough.

This was brilliant. We had a recommendation for this tour and what an evening. The tour guide was brilliant and made it scary for some of the visitors but he took us to some really interesting places that we would not have thought of going to and made it fun. The history behind these places was explained excellently. An evening... More

Would definitely recommend for something a little different whilst in Dublin! The actor is really good and kept everyone entertained. Stopped at a graveyard and Christchurch cathedral as part of the evening. Booked this online before our trip to Dublin and I think this resulted in a saving which meant it seemed like good value for money!
