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.

So look, this is a bus outfitted to be a Victorian Parlor with heavy velvet drapes and sound and light effects. It's cheesy and awesome. Sebastian was our guide and Francis was our driver and they were fun, enthusiastic and really knowledgable. Did we see any ghosts? No. Did we learn a bit about grave stealing and reported ghosts in... More

Fun night in general. Good actor telling tails and truths. They need more than 2 stops. Felt like 45 minutes or more on bus was wasting my time. Much rather tell the tall tails and stories outside like finishing in the graveyard.

Just returned from the Dublin Ghost Bus Tour. I was a bit skeptical and wasn't certain what to expect but I have to admit that I was fully entertained from start to finish. Throughout the 2 hour tour, our guide and master storyteller "Nick" weaved his animated ghostly tales based on fact, myth and sometimes personal experience, all the while... More

Anything that my teenage son enjoyed must be pretty good. The tour started with my wife's leg being grabbed as she entered the tour bus. She screamed so loud, it scared half the other people on the tour. Tour guide was amazing, loads of games and info to keep the tour flowing at a fast pace. Remember to book the... More
