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.

Family fun on Ghost Tour

We did the Ghost Tour with our host Sebastian and driver Francis. Had a fun night touring the "haunted" sites and hearing stories.

This was a fun and informative tour at night in Dublin. Francis and Sebastian were very entertaining. I recommend this tour if you want to do something fun at night and learn something to boot. The bus goes along the city streets of Dublin and Sebastian gave facts and stories about the eerier part of the Irish story telling heredity.

This was so much fun! Our host was so entertaining and knowledgeable.. it's very interactive too so you really feel part of the whole experience.. the ghost bus is decorated very well as downstairs is supposed to be a haunted house/museum and all the participants sit upstairs. the windows are blacked out so you can't see where you are going!...

I went on this tour with my girlfriend and 2 housemates. Straight away we were impressed by the effort and detail inside the bus. It really adds to the atmosphere which is slightly eerie in a playful sense! It helped to build the excitement. Vincent the tour guide was fantastic from start to finish. He plays a character throughout the... More

Very entertaining, interesting and fun ride! Our host Sebastian and driver Francis were absolutely brilliant. Sebastian's voice reminds Vincent Price's, so it makes the atmosphere even more spooky and mysterious)) it's 10 out of 10!

Great fun. Sebastian and Francis were great throughout the tour. Would recommend to friends who unlike some negative reviewers wouldn't want to be landed in a scene from the movie saw
