Great way to spend an evening in Dublin. Laura and Dan the spooks did an awesome job entertaining on the ghost bus. Lots of surprises as well as an education, about Dublins past.Lots of improvising by Laura, would defo recommend. Some adaptations I can see with Covid procedures, like not getting into the pub, but actually didn’t matter, except a wee toilet stop would have been beneficial. Overall a great night out,thank you guys 🎉

Entertaining and goofy, I really enjoyed this tour.

We stopped at the Kilmainham Gaol, the old City Walls, the Glasnevis Cemetery, and the Gravediggers' Pub. The actors / guides were informative, hilarious, and engaging.

It definitely helps that we ended up with a group of good sports.

Came into this not knowing what to expect and we were blown away but how fun it was! Shane and the rest of the crew on 5/3 were phenomenal and Shane specifically was hilarious. The tour was incredibly engaging and informational. Not your typical ghost tour, but I don't think I'll be able to go on a regular one ever again...

Having done these tours in other places, I was looking forward to this one, but was disappointed. Whilst Caoimhe was a good actress and was very funny, there were just too many negatives. For a start, she spent a lot of time fake coughing/vomiting. I understand that it was part of the act as a plague victim, but she spent more time doing this than actually telling us anything. The stop outside Kilmainham Gaol was good but the rest were so so. The drink at the pub was a nice touch but I didnt realise we'd spend 20 odd minutes there. Whilst there were some funny bits and some small jump scares, I wouldn't call this a ghost tour, more a gross out comedy tour.

If you dont like the dark, fake vomiting/coughing or swearing, this definitely isn't the tour for you.

Was hoping for more eerie history. We got a short story at each stop, but we didn't get to go in Kilmainham or the cemetery. The acting was bad, but funny at times. There are better ways to spend a night out in Dublin.

We were all excited to see the Kilmainham jail and Glasnevin Cemetery, but we stop outside the actors told a 3 minute story and we boarded the bus again. Not much on facts and nothing to see. Very disappointed!!!
Book the Kilmainham Gaol directly or the cemetery directly.

We had a family weekend in Dublin and unfortunately could not get tickets to Kilmainham Goal but when doing research say that this trip visited outside and booked up

Without giving to much away it’s an excellent tour, the hosts we had were very good, and kept the group entertained and took us around Dublin on a spooky bus and drink to finish. Well worth ticket price

The actors were fun; very believable but being driven around on a bus, getting off to stand outside in the cold and then back on again seemed rather pointless! Loved the stories though :)

Wow! The reviews here made this seem worth it, but boy was it a complete waste of time and money! It takes a lot for me to write a bad review and I really wanted to like this, but I can't find anything redeeming. The poor actors were trying hard, but their material needs a MAJOR refresh. I don't think the main "ghoul" ever finished a story he started, we only saw the outside walls of the brief stops we made, the drink at the pub tasted like alcohol-free Kool Aid (we DEFINITELY needed several shots of something strong before taking this tour! Might have somewhat enjoyed it in an altered state...), the bus and props were pretty run down... honestly, this is definitely a waste of time and money! Try something else.

Not at all what we expected. The five star review are either fro family members of the company or people who were there for the laughs. As entertainment is it okay - but as for hauntings and real ghost stories, only fair. In two hours we made only three stops - and never actually entered a cemetery. We were really looking forward to this tour - and were pretty disappointed.
