The Gravedigger Ghost Bus Tour starts at Trinity College, where your guide brings you back about 600 years, when the old Augustinian Priory and of course the plague house were there. The driver is too familiar with the latter … But just ignore the coughing and listen to the stories of a plague-ravaged Dublin!

  • Listen to a report on plague victims trying to alleviate their wounds in the waters of the city’s supplies of drinking water.
  • Learn about the mayor’s plans to keep the disease at bay
  • And learn more about the fates of all those poor souls who had become infected with the disease. Many were ostracized, but some suffered a much worse fate …

Many believed that the plague was the end of days, but the horrors in Dublin continued. Join your guide as he takes you through the weird and wonderful events that have taken place in times gone by, unearthing legends and ghosts from Dublin’s past.
