The Dublin Ghost Bus Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Discover the darker side of Dublin on this 2-hour bus tour around the city’s most haunted spots. As you cruise around the streets, hear about ghostly legends, body snatching and spine-chilling mysteries from your entertaining guide. Get acquainted with the sites of ghostly apparitions and the frightening stories associated with them. Take a stroll around the eerie St. Kevin's Graveyard and visit the haunted steps of St Audoens Church where the ghosts of Darky Kelly and Lepers still roam the medieval quarter to this day. Visit includes a demonstration of medieval Torture Implements - a favourite with our fans!
  • Be transported between Dublin sites in the company of a guide
  • Hear lesser-known tales of the city's dark side
  • Experience the opportunity to go into an underground crypt
  • Walk between the tombstones at St. James' Graveyard
What to Expect
Make your way to the central Dublin meeting point and board the ghost bus. Settle in as your entertaining guide sets the scene for the evening's tour. Head first for the Royal College of Surgeons to hear about the restless ghost of an unethical doctor who still roams the hallways and about Dublin's connection to Dracula author Bram Stoker. Back on the bus, head next for the haunted steps of St Audoens Church, where your guide horrifies with tales of medieval torture methods. After hearing more ghoulish tales of torture and murder, disembark at the eerie St. James' graveyard. Stroll the spooky site—if you dare—and see for yourself how grave robbers snatched corpses from below ground. Your tour then returns to the original departure point, where it concludes.

I love this type of tour and was really excited about doing it. My expectations were more than lived up to! Our guide, Edgar, was top notch - funny, interesting and very well informed. He was also suitably creepy and scary at times! A great...More

Felt really let down, it was really just a couple of disjointed stories told on a blacked out bus. Not scary, or that informative. A real shame not to go into a real graveyard, thought we were getting to do a bunch of stuff we...More

Fun theatrical experience with some spooky stories and a couple of external visits. Nick was a very convincing story teller and set the spooky mood well. Would recommend when in Dublin

They stop twice for two short tours; Dublin Castle and St Kevin's Church. There is very little walking involved and you can always stay on the bus if you don't want to do them. If you have mobility issues I would give the... More
