Northside Ghost Walking Tour in Dublin

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.

We had such a lovely time on this tour and our guide Godfrey was so amazing (with additional humour and musical treat) to explain everything about the places we visited. The lovely sunny weather was the icing on the cake to enjoy the beautiful sites.

Great full-day tour that gives the perfect insight into nature and the surrounding area. Unfortunately, the guide only spoke English, but it was an all-round perfect day. The respective free time on site was very nice.

We had a great day exploring Glendalough and Kilkenny. I do recommend the tour if you are short on time but want to get a good overview of both. Great craic, Finn McCools Tours!

Really nice experience, Philip the guide, makes it better telling you stories through the trip. You can explore many places in one day. All in all it’s a nice tour to take!

Our trip was excellent and our guide humorous and helpful. The scenery off the beaten path was beautiful.
