Do you want to find out what happened to the lost souls of medieval, plague-ravaged Dublin? This bus tour is your chance to do just that! Visit eerie yet impressive local sites where haunting historical events took place. Don't miss out on this opportunity to discover Dublin's haunted past and find traces of the city’s sinister legacy.
During this tour, your guide will transport you back 600 years to the times of the old Augustinian Priory with its plague house (a place where plague-sick people were impounded). Walk through the ruins of the original Augustinian Priory Chapter House as you listen to your knowledgeable guide reciting spooky tales of a plague-ravaged Dublin. Hear about the extraordinary events that took place here and the ghoulish legends from Dublin's past.
Pass by Dublin Castle and Christ Church and hear the stories of the city's central area, Cork Hill, as you make your way to St Audoen’s Church, your first major stop. Get off the bus and explore this historic building while listening to the shocking tales of 'The Black Dog' jail and the mysterious phantom pig. Then, head further to Kilmainham Jail (Kilmainham Gaol), where you'll hear accounts of the various ghosts that are said to haunt the place. Visit Bully’s Acre, a historic graveyard more than 1,000 years old, where encounters of the graveyard’s watchmen's pursuit for professional body snatchers date back to the very beginning of the cemetery's opening.
Drive by the memorial of Croppies Acre and St Michan’s Church before arriving at the original Gravediggers Pub. Here, relax and enjoy a complimentary ‘ghoulish brew’ with your group and guide. After a final stop at the Black Church, also known as St Mary’s Chapel of Ease, you will return back to College Green.
The price of the tour includes a free 'Haunted Dublin Historical Walking Tour' pass, which can be enjoyed separately from this tour. It gives you more insight into Dublin's mysterious history of witches and creepy stalkers, making stops at supernatural places in eerie, cobblestoned streets. Your ticket is valid for one month.
