Don’t Get Spooked on this Macabre Nightly Tour
The Gravedigger Ghostbus Tour will take your group back in time, to an era of superstition ravaged by plague and disease, on a both educational and spooky trip through nightly Dublin.
The times of 600 years in the past, when Trinity College was just a small Augustinian Priory and plague house, is when the Gravedigger Story starts.
The route includes:
- St Audeons aka "Hell"
- Kilmainham Jail & Bullys Acre
- Croppies Acre
- St Michans
- The Gravediggers Pub with a complimentary Ghoulish Brew
Your group will hear stories of plague victims trying to soothe their wounds in the waters of the city’s drinking supplies and learn about the Mayors’ schemes to try and keep the disease under control and discover the fates of all those poor souls who found themselves infected with the disease. Many were ostracized, but some suffered an end much, much worse. Many believed the end times were near, but, as it turned out, Dublin's history was to continue - and so were its horrors.
Contact us to book for your group this tour of Dublin's gruesome history and unearth legends of ghosts and weird creatures.
