The tour focuses on the former Viking area of Northside, one of Dublin’s most haunted districts, and you hear spine-chilling tales of hellfire, witchcraft, and hauntings from your local guide you wouldn’t pickup wandering the streets alone.

What to Expect
Greet your guide and small group near City Hall in central Dublin. As you stroll the cobbled streets, listen as your local guide shares local lore. 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, 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.
