Tour Overview

Visit the scenes of these most despicable acts, be entertained by your storyteller and driver, (two souls who truly are in tune with the afterlife) Stop off at a creepy hidden city centre graveyard and visit the haunted steps of St Audeons Church where the ghosts of Darky Kelly and Lepers still roam the medieval quarter to this day. Visit includes a demonstration of medieval torture implements - a favourite with our fans!

The Ghostbus tour is a great ‘alternative’ night out in Dublin city. Ideal for anyone with an interested in darker side of life. The tour storytellers are experienced professional actors who know how to put on a great show. Visit our Plan your night out in Dublin page for essential information and links.

The bus itself is an incredible venue for all things macabre, travel through winding corridors and sinister rooms below before emerging into a stark Victorian theatre on the upper deck, complete with blood red velvet curtains.

Get a crash course in the art of body snatching, hear of sinister Dublin surgeon Dr Clossey, learn of the inspiration behind Bram Stokers most famous character Dracula, and much more.

The Dublin Ghostbus tour was the first of its kind in the world. The idea has now been copied in many cities but the Dublin Ghostbus tour remains the original and the best.
