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!

    Informative and Entertaining!

    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.

    Fun and informative ghost walk

    I signed up for a haunted history walk. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and I love that he had a key for a locked churchyard gate, made it feel like we were up to no good (!). Very happy I booked this tour. Next time I'm back I'll try the north of the Liffey ghost walk, as it also looked very interesting.

    Cool tour!

    My best friend, my husband, and I took the Dublin's Haunted History Walking Tour and had a great time! The stories were interesting, the walking was easy, and our guide (Ailish? sorry for the misspelling) was fantastic! The walking tour is also a great way to see some sights around Dublin. I would highly recommend this tour for folks who are interested in hauntings.
