Reserve Your Spot on Dublin’s Gravedigger Ghost Bus Tour
Come and join us on the world-famous Gravedigger Ghost Bus Tour! The tour includes a stop at the famous Gravediggers Pub. An authentic family run pub since 1833 and home to the best pint in Ireland. With TWO professional actors and a plague-torn Dublin, it won’t disappoint!
Choose from either our CLASSIC GRAVEDIGGER GHOST BUS or our new GHOST SHIP BUS: Exact same tour but on a ghostly vessel that’s been seen drifting off the Irish Coast some 600 years! Reports suggest the rats may be left with nothing to eat but each other!
Many believed that the plague was the end of days, but the history of Dublin and its horrors continued…
Join your guides as they take you through the weird and wonderful events in times gone by, unearthing legends and ghosts from Dublin’s past on your choice of our two world-famous, custom-built vessels. As seen on TV!
The stories begin with 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 guide is all too familiar with the latter…But just ignore the coughing and listen to his tales!
