Haunted History Walking Tour
From US$ 17.72

Whether you’re serious about the paranormal or simply fascinated by the supernatural, discover a darker side of Dublin’s history on this walking ghost tour. Focusing on the former Viking area of Northside, one of Dublin’s most haunted districts, hear spine-chilling tales of hellfire, witchcraft, and hauntings from your local guide.

What to Expect

Greet your guide and small group outside City Hall in central Dublin of an evening. As you stroll the cobbled streets, listen to your local guide unpick the area's history. Discover the haunted heritage of some of the city’s most famous landmarks and listen to tales of wandering spirits and blazing witches.

Hear sinister stories of Darkey Kelly, burnt at the stake for witchcraft, the demon known as the Dolocher, and the mysterious 18th-century Hellfire Club. Visit a site considered home to the Gates of Hell before you end your tour at Dublin’s best-known haunted pub, The Brazen Head.

Our guide was Andrew and he was very thorough, friendly and informative. He knew a lot if information and told the tales well. We went in February and could have done with a few more layers though!
