Description:

Come and join us on Ireland's only 4D bus ride - The Gravedigger Ghost Bus...

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.

If you go in winter/spring wrap up warm. Entertaining, but the evening we went there was a lack of historical content - maybe just not enough for me. I recommend having a few drinks before to get you in the swing, actors are friendly and entertaining, bus very cold! We had a laugh but weather was against us. Not a... More

The locations visited were okay but the main selling point was the staff and the entertaining way they interacted with the people. Very funny guys. Hope to do it again.

We never stopped screaming , laughing and jumping all night. It is not really very scary, but it is a must....... You and your fellow travellers , hop on and off the bus, meet ghosts of the past, learn fascinating facts. Immerse yourself in it, and you will enjoy it far better than being critical.............It is a bit of fun!... More

This is not what we were expecting. Although there was a bit of culture and history mixed in, most of the tour was laced with very crude - and downright raunchy - "humor". I'll add that both myself and my fiancé have a very high tolerance for inappropriate jokes and can certainly handle our fair share of sexually explicit conversation... More

Such a great way to spend an evening! We booked this for our last night out in Dublin and was pleasantly surprised by how fun the whole thing was. The actors have a great sense of humor and made the tour what it is. I can't recommend this enough for those who fancy something fun and different to do before... More

Booked this tour as we had an interest in paranormal/ghost stories. The bus was cool and clean - pick-up points were accessible. The tour itself is not what I expected. The guide is very lively and interactive if you're looking for a comical, immature, erratic approach to storytelling. I, personally, tend to have more of a dry sense of humor... More

Great actors and locations. Something to do before drinks if you go in winter wrap up warm and be prepared to cuddle up. Good laugh and atmosphere on the bus and gives you chance to meet new people from all over the world.

My mom and I went on this tour our first night in Dublin. It was so engaging and entertaining. We laughed. We were playfully scared. It was wonderful. The cast got the whole bus to interact with each other.

This tour wasn't what we were expecting but was not disappointing in the least. It was really entertaining and funny at times with some interesting but gruesome historical tales told and acted. The tour ended at a genuinely authentic old Irish pub. Well worth a visit if you're ok climbing the stairs of a double decker bus.
