The Gravedigger Ghost Tour + FREE Haunted Walk

from £24 per person

Enjoy a spook or two on The Gravediggers Tour from Dublin!

Includes:

  • St Audeons Church
  • Kilmainham Jail
  • Glasnevin Cemetery
  • The Gravediggers Pub

We meet at Trinity College where you will be transported 600 years back in time. Back to a time when the Augustine Priory was in operation and the plague houses were full, something your guide is more than just a little familiar with.

Try to ignore his coughing and spluttering, cover your mouth, and listen to his stories of plague ravaged Dublin and its unfortunate victims.

- Hear how the unfortunate victims who looked for relief by bathing their wounds in the same water that supplied the city with drinking water.

- Learn how the mayor tried to keep the plague at bay.

- Discover what happened to the unfortunates who contracted this horrible disease. Some were shunned and cast aside, while others came to a more gruesome end.

Many believed that the plague heralded the end of the world but Dublin's horrors continued for a long time with poverty and depravity fuelling it.

Let your plague victim and his ghoulish friends bring you on an adventure around Dublin and its darker history. Definitely a tour for those that enjoy the macabre.
