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.

The Gravedigger Tour is essentially a haunted house on wheels with lots of over the top "acting" by the guide (yelling, jumping out at you, weird noises). I booked through a travel site which had a misleading description of the tour - suggesting it would be informative rather than a theatre type of production. It was fun - but not... More

When we booked this, we wasn't expecting much comedy but I definitely have to say I loved it! It was so funny, and at the time I did scream a few times. I would recommend it because at the same time you learn more about the history of Dublin. For €25 for 2 hours of fun you can't beat it.

Went on this tour on Halloween. Suppose to be a scary tour but ended up being a horrible comedy night. Two actors dressed up and were doing comedy. I felt like I was trapped in a horrible D rated show. We had three stops and while we were on route, the lead tour guide questioned where everyone was from and... More

Great fun and some good history too. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The information about old Dublin was very interesting. I was the guy who had to drink the 100 year old sewer water. Don't do that.

It was a cold windy night ... The two actors did a good job in scaring the guests throughout the trip, and they did inform of us of some of the dark sides of Dublin's past. Some of the other guests (especially a group of ladies who sounded like they had attended a longer pub crawling event) seemed to enjoy... More

This bus tour was the best fun I've had in ages. The guides were very funny and made sure to keep us all entertained. Also a bit of public participation required although this only added to the enjoyment. The tour is not scary at all although there is a few jumps n Loud noises. Recommended

We booked the 10.30pm tour one evening, three days before Halloween and I am afraid to say it was a nightmare... Firstly, we missed the bus on the first night, well I should say the bus left us behind on the first night...since we arrived 5 minutes before the departure time! When we got there, we saw the bus parked... More
