What You Can Expect

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.

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.

This was great fun would definitely recommend it. Even if I did scream so few too many times due mostly to the tour guides. They was in character the whole time. The bus and the outfits were great too.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Was very theatrical, was loaded with history and stories. Was a fun night out, we would have liked to have maybe gotten into some the venues but if you wanted to emerge yourself in the location a different tour might be better. But was good for giggles, laughs and fun for an evening.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

A really fun way to spend an evening and learn about Dublin in its dark times.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

A great tour, extremely well chaperoned by our plague ghost. It was heaps of fun even though I was severely jet lagged. I learnt a lot about historic Dublin and what life might have been like. Extremely well acted.
