Tour Details

Prepare to be spooked on this nightly bus tour that includes stops at Dublin's "Hell," Kilmainham Jail, and The Black Church.

Meet your ghoulish guide and set out to explore the haunted St. Audeon's Church, also known as "Hell." Walk through the ancient church and hear about "the black dog" jail and the fearsome "Dolocher," a demon pig who terrorized women walking alone in Dublin. Learn about the extreme measures the citizens and guards took to stop the attacks and how the mystery was solved.

From there you will continue on to Kilmainham Jail, where you will meet an inmate who gives new meaning to "life sentence." Hear why residents believe that these barred halls are still inhabited and maybe even witness for yourself the presence of the ghosts of prisoners past. Visitors still claim to hear footsteps, see shadowy figures, and often jump at the eerie noises. Step outside to Bully's Acre, a cemetery that is notorious for its body snatchers and grave robbers. Come explore the gravesites and learn about the thieves of the night.

Thirsty? Stop by a local pub named after its customers' reputation. The Gravedigger's Pub was a hotspot for the body snatchers. It was customary to scoop dirt against the walls of the pub to tell the bartender you were thirsty. You won't have to shovel any dirt, but you might hear sounds of the people who once did. Enjoy a complimentary drink and keep your eyes peeled.

The last stop on this tour is at The Black Church, known also as St. Mary's Chapel - of - Ease. This sinister building has been standing since 1830, but it is now closed due to superstition. You will meet the dark figure that lurks around the church and decide for yourself whether these haunted tales are fact or fiction.

Each stop on this tour has its own spooky story. Your guide will tell you all you need to know about each stop on your Dublin ghost tour. Don't forget to keep your eyes open and your ears tuned, and definitely watch out for figures lurking in the shadows. As a bonus, at the conclusion of the tour you will receive a free pass to the Haunted History Walking Tour, an equally gruesome adventure.
