Best Dublin Gravedigger Ghost Tour

Dublin Gravedigger Ghost Tour

Depart from College Green in Dublin for a ghost walking tour. Although you will be strolling through the spooky sites of the city, bus transport will take you from place to place. Hear about the extraordinary events that took place and the ghoulish legends from Dublin's past along the way!

Pass by Dublin Castle and Christ Church and hear the stories of the city's central area, Cork Hill, as you make your way to St Audoen’s Church, your first major stop. Get off the bus and explore this historic building while listening to the shocking tales of 'The Black Dog' jail and the mysterious phantom pig. Then, head further to Kilmainham Jail (Kilmainham Gaol), where you'll hear accounts of the various ghosts that are said to haunt the place. Visit Bully’s Acre, a historic graveyard more than 1,000 years old, where spooky accounts of gravediggers date back to the very beginning of the cemetery's opening.

Drive by the memorial of Croppies Acre and St Michan’s Church before arriving at the original Gravediggers Pub. Here, relax and enjoy a complimentary ‘ghoulish brew’ with your group and guide. After a final stop at the Black Church, also known as St Mary’s Chapel of Ease, you will return back to College Green.

Your guide will also walk through the ruins of the original Augustinian Priory Chapter House. Listen to your knowledgeable guide reciting spooky tales of a plague-ravaged Dublin in a place where deathly ill people were impounded.

The price of the tour includes a free 'Haunted Dublin Historical Walking Tour' pass, which can be enjoyed separately from this ghost walking tour of eerie, cobblestone streets. It gives you more insight into Dublin's mysterious history of witches, gravediggers and creepy stalkers. Your ticket is valid for one month.

We had an awesome time on this tour. More story telling than tour, but a lot of fun all the same!

The Gravedigger Ghost Tour was one of the highlights of our short vacation in Dublin! Our two tour guides dresses up as ghosts did an amazing job telling us about Dublin's past and showing us some of the scariest locations in the city including Kilmainham Gaol and Glasnevin Cemetery. Especially Aidan was really funny and would definitely have deserved an Oscar for his performance : We had a great time on this tour! Thanks guys!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Oh, this was so much fun! Our plague victim tour guide was very knowledgeable, especially for a dead person. We had already done the official Kilmainham Gaol tour, and everything Plague-y and her partner in crime told us confirmed that they knew their facts. We also visited a cemetery and the Gravediggers pub. I will warn that the pub dates from 1833 and my husband said the men's room had not been updated since.

The young lady leading the tour was smart and funny and it didn't hurt that even as a ghoul, she was quite good looking!
We laughed and smiled the entire time.
Quite silly and quite fun. An evening well spent.

Lots of fun! The young man who was our tour host is very funny and engaging. The last stop at the pub located at the cemetery was a great addition to the tour. Having just seen a documentary on the plane to Dublin, I was fascinated to have the opportunity to visit the place. Overall, highly recommend.
