What to expect

The Gravedigger Ghost bus tour promises to transport you back 600 years to a time when the old Augustinian Priory and plague houses reigned. Ignore your ghostly guide's coughing if you can and focus on his tales of a plague-ravaged Dublin. You'll hear a plague victim's account of how those suffering from this dreaded illness soothed their wounds in the city's water supplies, learn about the mayor's plans to keep the disease at bay and discover the fates of all those poor souls who found themselves infected with the disease.

This tour is your chance to discover the weird and wonderful events that make up the past of Dublin and learn all about its legends and ghosts. This will be no ordinary bus tour, this will be full of poetry, song and even a free ghoulish drink. You'll get a free walking tour to be taken on a different night so that you can learn more of the city's history. You're sure to never forget it!
