Full description
Looking for a spookily thrilling adventure? You've come to the right place! On this 2-hour walking tour of Dublin, you will see that while most of Dublin’s grisly past has been left behind, not every character has decided to pass over into the next world. The Emerald Isle is known as being one of the most haunted countries on the planet, with many of the world's most famous supernatural characters and stories finding their roots in the city's collective lore. Each wave of human culture from the Celts to the Protestant ascendancy has left a mark on the city's haunted history, and it is this diversity which makes Dublin’s other-worldly folklore so fascinating. Today, you'll be led through the eerie, cobblestoned streets as we hear tales from the underbelly of this city. These include the burning of 18th century madam Darkey "The Witch" Kelly, the tragic tale of The Green Lady of St. Audoen’s, and how Dublin's "Hell" got its name. As you walk, you will learn of the period in which The Dolocher stalked our streets and you will hear tales of the mysterious 18th century Hellfire Club and its dark origins. Your expert tour guides–associated with PSI Ireland (Paranormal Study and Investigation)–have all the capital's most haunting stories to share!

    Great way to see and hear about Dublin and it’s many stories to tell. Some you may be familiar with, others you won’t find in a guide book; but all are told with the charm and friendliness you expect from such a welcoming nation. Prepare to be scared, yet comforted, whilst you learn about Dublins darker side.

    I absolutely loved this tour because it provided a great history lesson while keeping my attention through ghost and creepy stories. Our guide pointed out many things I would have never otherwise noticed. He was a very good story teller and made sure to speak clearly and loud enough for all to hear and understand.

    Overall the tour was interesting, tour guide was first week on the job for this particular tour so kept apologising but he didn't need to as he was informative and entertaining. The tour could have been slightly longer but all in all was an enjoyable evening.
