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!

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. :

Amazing! The tour guides were wonderful actors and kept it informational as well as entertaining! It was fun and family friendly. Was sceptical at first but turned out to be one of my favourite tours. A cute kind of corny!

We took this tour with our three teenagers and it was a huge hit with all of us. The actors did a great job of entertaining as well as sharing a lot of history about Dublin during the time of the plagues and political drama. Lots of laughs with puns and jokes that target different ages.

This tour was AWESOME!!! Definitely made history fun and a bit spooky. The bus rides between destinations were actually more entertaining than the sites themselves, but overall entertainment factor was definitely worth it. It was refreshing to take a break from the distillery/brewery/whiskey type history info to learn more about life in Ireland history from a different perspective, and with a few twists.
