Take a Ride on the Fright Side with The Ghostbus
DoDublin launches a new spook-tacular Ghostbus
Step inside the world’s first and original Ghostbus and be transported into a world of ghostly happenings, comedy horror, and terrifying histories. The new Ghostbus will drive you into your nightmares, taking in some of Dublin’s most haunting sights along the way. Visit the Hellfire Clubroom and haunted museum downstairs, and play a hand of cards with the devil himself. Next take your seat upstairs in the Victorian Theatre with its blood red velvet curtains and begin a thrilling ride tracing Dublin’s creepiest mysteries. You will be led through this ordeal by a sinister guide and driver, two men in tune with the afterlife, who will do their best to put you at your unease.
Did you know that Dublin was home to one of horror fiction’s most famous names: Dracula author, Bram Stoker? Your creepy host will give you an unnerving insight into his origins as the tour creeps through Dublin’s darkened streets. At the College of Surgeons, a certain Dr. Clossey is still said to roam the corridors carrying a bucket of human entrails.
Having heard some twisted tales aboard the Ghostbus get ready for a lesson in grave robbing and bodysnatching in the grisly surroundings of the haunted graveyard. More grizzly dealings are unleashed at the 12th Century St. Audeon’s Church, where the ghost of Darky Kelly,the madame of Dublin’s notorious Maiden Tower is said to wander restlessly. Don’t be surprised if the supernatural occurs as you delve inside the creepy Christchurch crypt to scenes of medieval torture. Designed to spook your imagination, the spine-tingling, nerve-racking DoDublin Ghostbus Tour will be a journey of hair-raising frights you will never forget.
