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 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.

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!

Due to a lay over I had only one night to spend in Dublin. I love a good ghost story so I thought the GhostBus tour would be a good option. It certainly was! Not only did I get to see different sites in the city like the castle but we were also taken to other locations (ruins of a... More

Frances an Sebastian make this a memorable tour, Sebastian was a very entertaining guide and pulled out all the stops to make sure everyone was involved and had a good time. Also like to thank the guys in the booking office for managing to find us a seat.

got there in time for 1930 trip and Francis was sweet enough to let me on early rather than wait for 2130 ride. Nick is a very entertaining tour guide and very knowledgeable. Fun crowd was aboard and easy to find on upper Connelly street. It was very irritating with the smokers and vapors in the crowd who couldn't go... More

We wanted a work night out with a difference and we certainly got one. From the minute you step aboard the bus you are transported to a world of creepy happenings and visual frights. Our guide was Vincent and he was so funny he knew so much of the spooky history of Dublin I never knew about and I was... More

Took this tour on Friday night 28th Oct, group of ladies with plenty of experience in travel & trips. The bus was too hot, the windows too steamy to see through, the scary moments were very tame & the tour disrupted by a group who were asked to leave the bus. They decided they were not leaving & the police... More

We were a group of 10 females celebrating the 60th birthdays of two of us. According to the actor, four females at the other side of the bus were interrupting him (we didn´t hear a thing!!), to the extent that the tour was delayed for well over half an hour whilst they called the Police!!! Whilst we respect his decision... More

Dear Linda, We once again apologise to you for any inconvenience caused by a group people on the bus. We had no choice but to involve the Gardaí and we did so with the customer in mind. The group were, despite numerous warnings, repeatedly disruptive and we reacted in what we believe was an appropriate and professional manner. As you... More
