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.

We have booked the tour mainly because of our teenage children and I must say we adults loved it the same ! Shane (hope I remember the name correctly) was hillarious and it was the great way to spend rainy Friday evening with teenagers on this tour !

Wasn't sure at first about this tour, but it was a complete blast. The actors that are on this tour are so much fun that you don't realize you are actually learning the history of Ireland. Takes you to a gravedigger pub that is hundreds of years old and you can mix with the locals. Great fun!

Didn't know what to expect on this nightime tour but was very pleasantly surprised. Our guide Dan was a scream,entertaining us with stories of Dublins history of the plague in a unique fashion.
Laughed so much,well worth the €25.

My husband and I took this tour on 2/27 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our plague victim tour guide was very informative and entertaining. Having a pint at the Gravedigger's pub was an added bonus. The only thing I would have liked to have done was actually go into the sites instead of talking about them from outside.

My husband and I booked the night tour so excited to be scared and to see some sights at night. The bus is so tight (my husband who is 6 feet couldn't sit facing forward) and the windows are blacked out so we couldn't see anything. We also barely understood the tour guide and it wasn't his accent because we understood everyone else in Ireland - he was just basically screaming the whole time. He made a few funny jokes but overall we were totally underwhelmed by the whole thing.
