“ Let us put you at your unease on the world's only Ghostbus, and introduce you to the dark romance of a city of gaslight ghosts and chilling legends. Your professional guide will weave his spell and spirit you away to meet the felons, fiends and phantoms who reach out across a thousand years of Dublins troubled history. Youll pass haunted houses, learn of Draculas Dublin origins and well even throw in a crash course in body-snatching. Near journeys end the lights go out and darkness invites the macabre traditions of the Irish wake. Your host - one blessed with the "gift of the gab" - will conclude the tour by explaining the meaning of life - and death! - Irish-style. „
There are really two points that I think need to be highlighted before anyone goes on this tour:
1. At 25 euros it was quite pricey
2. It was a funny tour rather than a creepy ghost tour
Having said that I really enjoyed it. It wasn't what I had expected, I had expected a couple of hours of thrills and chills and horrific ghost stories, whereas in reality it was a couple of hours of comedy delivered by very funny costumed actors.
It was very different to your average ghost tour, but what I had been looking for was something of a slightly scarier nature. I went looking for another haunted tour of Dublin and finally after having found their brochure at the Dublin tourist office I went on Hidden Dublin Walks Haunted Tour. I booked online for only 6 euros for two hours at www.hiddendublinwalks.com (so already you can see that there is a huge price discrepancy between the two tours) and I was really pleased by what I got for my 6 euros. The walk was aimed at being genuinely creepy, there were some great stories there, it was a healthy mixture of history and paranormal on the tour and everything linked together nicely.
By the end at St Audoen's church I was thoroughly creeped out.
The only downside was the walking, but if you enjoy that you will love this tour.
So for hilarious: go for the ghost bus
For creepy: go for the walking tour (alsodo the walking tour if you don't want to hurt your wallet as the price difference is huge for something equally enjoyable)
