Owner description: Come and join us on Ireland's only 4D bus ride - The Gravedigger Ghost Bus Tour! - Sight, sound, smell and taste just got horrible! The tour starts at Trinity College where your guide will transport you back some 600 years ago to when the old Augustinian Priory and of course the plague house were there. But just ignore the coughing and listen to his tales of a plague-ravaged Dublin as we explore the weird and wonderful events that have taken place in times gone by, unearthing legends and ghosts from Dublin's past.

Its a fun activity and educational as you do get a bit of a history lesson about Dublin, but it wasn't what I expected. Your tour guide is a funny goblin which adds to the fun of the tour, but you don't actually get access to any of the sights by night. You just stop outside each site to hear stories about the tourist attraction. You don't actually get to enter them at night and if you go in the spring or summer in Dublin you don't get the scare of doing it at night as the sun is out pretty late. All together, fun, but a bit disappointing and definitely not scary. I'd recommend it for family with kids.

My kids (11 & 14) absolutely enjoyed this tour, they ranked it as one of the best things they did in Dublin last week. Neither are native English speakers, but they do have a good command of the language, which I feel is necessary to get all the jokes etc.. This is definitely something for they kids - mine were still laughing and talking about it two days later.

I recommend this tour to anyone needing a good laugh. We enjoyed it very much and agree with the comments we read before we got on. just do it dont think about it just sit back and enjoy the show. Dan and Shane were very knowledgeable and entertaining. I felt like it was a Broadway show on wheels. Best tour !
