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!

Great nights entertainment. Night bus was very cleverly decorated and atmospheric. The story teller was engaging and kept the evening flowing well. Would recommend this to anyone staying a few days in Dublin.

Recommended! Fun way to hear about the darker side of Dublin's history and folk stories.
The atmosphere and aesthetic were great, the actors are true performers.
The actors were super professional, handling a few drunk travellers on the bus really well to ensure they didn't ruin the experience.

I have to say this was one of my favorite tours. The actors were quite entertaining and did their “show” in front of interesting backgrounds like castles and cemetery. We all were hoping to go inside these places but I’m sure it was not allowed. We ended with a stop at a pub, shots included. Highly recommend
