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.

Took this tour in November 2016 to show our appreciation to our business partners. It was a fantastic event. The storytelling was second to none and gave us a great insight into what went on in the olden days in Dublin. It was the second year in a row we went and I'm sure we will be back soon!

I took this tour as part of a work night out with colleagues and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The show was a high energy mix of storytelling and comedy that really kick-started our night out and had everyone in tremendous form when it ended. The actors really know how to engage with a crowd and they were excellent in... More

Had an absolute blast with my hubby and the rest of the patrons. The tour isn't as much scary as it is funny. Very adult and we had a great time listening to stories of the past. Went to different locations and learned a bit of history. Great Value.

I came on this Ghost bus tour again on Aug.26/16 almost a year after the first time I took it and I knew what to expect or should I say I knew the general way the tour took place and despite that I was still a little bit surprised with this tour. The main reason I took it this time... More

The actors (Len and Matt) were incredible! Really funny with interesting facts about Dublin's history. We'd definitely go again. It was a perfect way to spend our last night in Dublin.

We had a great night on this tour. The two actors - Sean/Shaun and Ellish were superb! The tour relies on the actors being great - and they really were. This is not designed to scare so much as to make your laugh. Sean's dialogue was quick witted and a delightfully woven mix of historical information, comedy and contemporary references.... More

Had much fun on this tour - lots of laughs thanks to two engaging actors. There are no big frights, but certainly do expect to smile. I was so excited about the stops, but unfortunately you only get to stand outside the buildings with the locked gates. Not really what I imagened, since this is not my first tour of... More

This is a must-do trip on visiting Dublin. Two young and very talented hosts who play their parts extremely well. A most welcome stop for a pint of Guinness reputed to be in the top 5 next to Dublins cemetery towards the end.
