DoDublin Ghostbus Tour

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.  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.
