This is a story telling tour brought to you by professional actors on Dublin's oldest Ghostbus. It tells tales of Dublin's dark & macabre history & about Dracula's origins.

On this tour you will see and experience Dublin's more daunting sites and get a thrilling insight into some of the most gruesome tales in this fair city.

On the tour, you will hear tales of;

•Dr. Clossey and how he still roams the corridors of the College of Surgeons with his bucket of human entrails and innards,

•The Lady in White, who haunts her cruel husband at St. Patrick's Graveyard.

•The art of bodysnatching, and how it was once a lucrative business in our gruesome capital.

The tour starts and finishes at Dublin Bus Offices on O'Connell Street. The tour costs €28, a 20% discount is available when bought online.

Fun evening

Sebastian and Francis did a great job with stories and scares. My son thought it was great and was able to interact with the show

Nick was a great storyteller - funny, great actor and really entertaining. I did this trip with my sisters and nieces and we were in fits of laughter the whole time. It's creepy but not scary and a great evening out

Excellent in every sense. So much more than we had expected! Nick is such a fantastic storyteller! It was like being at a theatre. Plus we were at places we wouldn't have visited otherwise. A great night out!

Did the tour on a Saturday evening. Lucky enough to get a dry mild night. From start to finish it was great. Our tourguide, and host, Vinnie was fantastic. He was funny and very passionate about his job and making sure the customers had a good time. Great for tourists, but we went as a group of Irish couples and... More

Don't be afraid to go alone - Nick scared the big groups much more often (I did the tour solo.) Plan to get a beer or do something after. I slept fine but stopped to have a beer first!

A unique bus and great hosts, thank you Vincent and Francis! Learned some very interesting history and enjoyed walking around sites without many people about. If you do not do well in dark and/or enclosed spaces the bus might not be for you.

Nick was brilliant dressed for the occasion, great at the story telling. Tour lasted around 2 hours shame wasn't longer we loved it. There is two walking sites, the castle and st Kevin's park is all I'll say. Don't want to spoil it we got a free walking tour ticket and never had time to use it. The whole tour... More

This is the kind of tour rowdy college kids are into - a boorish tourist trap. Save your money for the lit pub crawl (our full revue there)

Took the tour on 29th Dec. Travelling solo and Francis even asked if I was okay entering alone as they planned to frighten new entrants boarding. I'm not easily scared so off I went. They did try hard all the same! I thought it was quite funny rather than scary and lots of crude humour added by Vincent. The historic... More
