What You Can Expect

Dublin Gravedigger Ghost Tour

Dublin Gravedigger Ghost Tour

As evening sets in, meet your tour guide at College Green for a journey into the gruesome side of Dublin. From here, travel by bus to each sinister location, where you will have a chance to stroll and hearing chilling tales of hauntings and misdeeds.  

View Dublin Castle and Christ Church as you head to the first stop – St Audoen’s Church, one of the city’s most haunted locations. Learn about the site’s grisly past including its bordering district known as ‘Hell,’ 'The Black Dog' jail with its mysterious phantom pig and the burning of Darkey Kelly, an accused witch and serial killer whose infamous ghost still wanders the area. 

Your next stop is Kilmainham Jail (Kilmainham Gaol), a menacing stone building that has seen scores of death from battle and execution since its construction in the 1790s. Hear tales about Kilmainham’s resident ghosts before heading to Bully’s Acres, a millennia-old graveyard that was once a ripe picking zone for local grave robbers. Hear tales of body snatching that stretch back to the cemetery's opening.

Afterwards, you may feel like a drink. Accompany your guide to the Gravediggers Pub, passing by Croppies Acre and St Michan’s Church along the way. At the pub, partake in a complimentary ‘ghoulish brew’ with your group. 

Your return trip passes by Black Church, also known as St Mary’s Chapel of Ease, and the ruins of the original Augustinian Priory Chapter House .  Your guide will provide cringe-worthy tales of the plague house that once stood on the grounds. You’ll return to College Green once night has completely descended on the city.

Added bonus! Your tour ticket includes a free 'Haunted Dublin Historical Walking Tour' pass. Any time within one monthly of your gravedigger tour, use your ticket to experience even more of Dublin’s dark underbelly – witches, gravediggers and creepy stalkers, oh my!

Fanstastic tour, very funny, the ghosts and ghouls that were the tour guides /entertainment were very funny and audience participation was a must... really interesting with various stop offs and a visit to the Gravediggers pub for a drink a ghoulish drink is included in the price. The bus was decked out very well to suit the atmosphere and it is hightly recommended. A wealth of information was given in a fun and light hearted manner.

Oh, my goodness, this was a hoot! Suspend your disbelief and prepare yourself for history with a tongue-in-cheek approach. It was more dark, R-rated comedy than scary horror show, and the actors were pros. They included the group in their skits and silly tales. At the end of the evening, the pint at the pub was a nice treat pay for your own. If you want a serious history lesson, go to the museum. If you want to learn a bit of sideways history and enjoy yourself and don't mind getting into the act take this adventure.

5 stars for sure, but not what I expected. I expected a spooky history lesson and a few scary sites. Although we did get great history and the sites were great to see at night, this is a COMEDY SHOW! The two actors were hilarious!!!! Absolutely loved this!!!

This tour was excellent. Hilarious, informative and just a little bit spooky. It had all the elements of great story telling delivered beautifully by our guides. A highly entertaining way to spend an evening in Dublin. I would do this again if given the chance. Highly recommended.

Laughed until my stomach hurt! Enjoyed the picture of Dublin at different times throughout history, and the pint of Guinness at the Gravedigger's pub. Our tour guide was great and it's easy to see he really enjoys his job. :
