Travel back to a darker era, when Dublin was withered by the malicious Black Plague. Pass by spooky city sights and cemeteries, visit the storied Kilmainham Jail, and sample a ghoulish brew at the Gravedigger pub as you uncover Dublin's eeriest locales with a local guide.
Meet your guide—does it seem like something's off with him to you?—and take a seat on the Grave Digger Bus, bracing yourself for a spine-tingling tour around town. Listen as your guide—he seems to be looking a little bit pale, no?—shares stories about when the plague swept the city streets, and how sick residents often met gruesome ends at the hands of fearful fellow Dubliners. Pass by Dublin Castle and Christ Church Cathedral—these stately buildings are ominous in the shadows.
At the centuries-old church of St. Audoen's, listen to the story of the Black Dog Jail and the Dolocher—the evil spirit of an inmate who returned as a vicious, murderous beast to haunt Cornmarket. At Kilmainham Jail, walk the chilling grounds where prisoners spent their final days and listen to accounts of odd incidents reported by the group who restored the abandoned jail. At Bully's Acre—a graveyard dating back more than 1,000 years—learn about Dublin's history of grave robbing.
Your tour ends at the historic, 1830s Kavanagh's Pub—also known as The Gravediggers—for a ghostly tipple to conclude your evening before you're released to wander back through the shadowy streets of Dublin on your own.
