Dublin is famous for elegant Georgian squares and graceful architecture, however often behind the façades of splendour, lurks stories of gruesome tales and ghostly happenings!
The Dublin Bus Ghostbus Tour is an eclectic mix of comedy, history and spine chilling ghost stories. This unique attraction, with sinister accessories and dark atmosphere are not for the squeamish. As you settle in for the evening the resident storyteller takes you on a spellbinding trip through Dublin’s sinister past.
During the tour passengers will learn about the real origins of Dracula and his Dublin born inventor, Bram Stoker, recreate the strange activities of Dr. Clossey at the College of Physicans. The tour also visits St. Audeon’s and the Forty Steps, a meeting place for Dublin’s notorious Hellfire Club, which is haunted by Darkey Kelly, an 18th Century Madame whose ghost is said to wander up and down the steps.
Dublin Bus launched the Ghostbus Tour in 1998 and it has been spreading the spook since then.
