Full description
With its vast and turbulent history, it is not surprising that Dublin is one of the most haunted cities in the world. Beware! Those of a nervous disposition may be left feeling just a little bit spooked! You will discover the site of Saint Mary’s Abbey; one of the most powerful Irish monastic settlements in medieval times, and now just a small ruin down an alleyway, passed by thousands of oblivious commuters every day. If you are feeling brave enough, we will take a walk down Hendrick Street, once the site of two of the most haunted houses in Dublin. Between number 7 and 8 Hendrick Street lived no fewer than 6 different ghosts. You might want to steel your nerves before venturing with us to Croppie’s Acre. This long-abandoned site was used as a football pitch in the 20th century, but underneath is a mass grave – the final resting place of hundreds of rebels executed in the 1798 rebellion. You will also hear tell of the mummies of Saint Michan’s Church, surely the most macabre tourist attraction in Ireland, and a major inspiration to the young Bram Stoker, native of Clontarf and author of Dracula. Whether you’re a native Dubliner or a visitor from far a field, come with us and discover what lies beneath.

    A fun and interesting tour of the Northside!

    My wife and I had a great time on the Northside Ghost Walking Tour. Our tour guide was a great story teller with a really good sense of humor. We got to see some things we would have missed otherwise and learn about the cities history. A really fun experience!

    Great night out

    Had a great night walking around the north side. I've been a regular in Dublin for many years & have done many of the touristy things. This walk was a nice change. Matthew our guide was informative, funny and full of great stories. I thought it good value for money & would recommend it to others.

    Tour was a great alternative idea but guide did make up some "facts"!

    As a family of 5 we were looking for something for everyone on a November night. This really hit the mark and it was good value for two hours. The guide was a little hit and miss on the facts - we're from Dublin and knew some of the history so the made up infill was noticeable to us. All in all it was enjoyable and they're was stuff we didn't know also which got everyone's interest. The weather was kind too - dry and mild so an enjoyable night all round.
