What You Can Expect

Irish Storytelling Tour from Dublin

Travel in the cleverly converted Irish Storytelling Bus!

Greet your charismatic guide at a central Dublin location and climb aboard a storytelling coach destined for the rich and mysterious Irish countryside. Receive a fascinating introduction to the country’s storytelling traditions from your guide as you travel towards the coast. 

Listen to tales surrounding fairies and giants, Vikings and leprechauns, and alluring mermaids, before stopping at Beann Eadir to visit the Howth Head Lighthouse. Famed for its reputed sightings of Irish mermen, the lighthouse exudes a mystical ambience heightened by its stunning coastal surroundings. 

Revitalize with an onboard drink while travelling to St Anne’s Park, the historical location of one of Ireland’s most brutal battles. Stroll around the bountiful park and delve into the mysteries surrounding the people of Sidhe, mystical creatures who are said to conceal themselves in the park’s shrubbery. 

After hearing tales of mythical warrior Finn McCool, return to your luxury vehicle and relax during the journey to central Dublin. Stop off along the way for a refreshing pint of Guinness in Church Bar and conclude your evening with a jovial sing-along in the ambient pub. Please note, food and drinks are at your own expense.

This was really fun! Just keep in mind - no one announces when the bus arrives so you may get left behind. Happened to me but they stopped about 4 blocks away so I could walk and get on. Lots of laughter and wonderful Irish folk stories.

This tour was so much fun. As a matter of fact my family all agreed it was the best thing we did on our trip to Dublin. The actress who told stories was absolutely wonderful, so engaging. And the walks we took in St. Anne's Park and to the beach at twilight were amazing. We also liked the last stop of the night, The Church Bar, where there was a table reserved for our group and we met some amazing people from Denmark, England, and our neighbor state of Illinois. The only caution I would offer is that the trip involves a lot of walking so if that is an issue for any member of your party you might want to check if arrangements could be made for accommodation. Otherwise, I would highly, highly recommend this.

Fabulous evening with great storytelling! And a free pint of Guiness! Was hoping to end the tour with a pub that had traditional Irish music, but it was a unique pub.

This tour is seriously a must do while you are in Dublin, it truly brings back the heart of many Irish traditions. The bus even looks like a cozy Irish home. While the guides were extremely accommodating and understanding of my 3 year old, I wouldn't recommend it for kids.

What I loved about Dublin was it had so many experiences, all different from one another. The storytelling Tour is not to be missed. The bus is beautifully decorated, the guide so pritty and enjoyable. They take you to the deep forrest, and then to the beach, all in a dream like atmosphere with so many interesting stories and legends. You can almost feel a fee or leprechaun.
