Gravedigger Ghost Bus Night Tour 2 hours

  • Private tour
  • Solo friendly
  • Book now pay later*

The Gravedigger evening tour shows you the more macabre, darker side of Dublin from the Middle Ages. Professional actors take you on a scary (but fun) trip through Dublin on a custom made double decker bus. This tour includes a free ghoulish (alcoholic) drink and a free Hidden Dublin Walks walking tour to be taken on a different night.

The gravedigger ghost bus tour starts at Trinity College where your guide will transport you back some 600 years ago to when the old Augustinian Priory and of course the plague house were there. The latter of which the guide is all too familiar with… But just ignore the coughing and listen to his tales of a plague-ravaged Dublin.

Hear an account of plague victims trying to soothe their wounds in the waters of the city’s drinking supplies.

Learn about the mayors schemes to try and keep the disease at bay, and discover the fates of all those poor souls who found themselves infected with the disease. Many were ostracised, but some suffered an end much, much worse.

Many believed that the plague was the end of days, but the history of Dublin and its horrors continued. Join your guide as he takes you through the weird and wonderful events that have taken place in times gone by, unearthing legends and ghosts from Dublin’s past. Select a tour stop from the navigation footer below to learn and read more of what to expect on the tour. To be sure to be sure, join us on our custom built storytelling bus and through live poetry and song, let us bring you on a journey to an Ireland of times gone by. It’s no ordinary bus, WE PROMISE YOU WON’T FORGET!
