    The tour was a lot of fun. The guides were wonderful- energetic, funny, great story tellers. My family really enjoyed it. The only thing I would change is adding some other information besides the plague.

    We’ve taken haunted tours around the US and London and this was THE BEST OF ALL ! The tour guide was brilliant, the tour bus was incredible, and we were genuinely startled and entertained. We told people about it the next day. Thank you for a GREAT TIME !

    This was a really fun tour! The plague-ridden staff were awesome! We loved the scary bus and the stops at different locations with more plague descriptions and skits by the talented actors! A very fun way to spend our last night in Dublin!

    Driven around in a double decker bus with blacked out windows that you can’t see out of, not what I was expecting. The actors/guides were good at least. Listing states free drink included at The Gravediggers, this was not the case, I had to pay for my own beverage. Free walking tour was also included but good luck signing up for it, I could even find it online. I had to go back to the tour office, they weren’t able to make me a listing without charging me but they told me we’re to show up and to just tag along.

    Fun, but only because of the energy of the guide. The amount of historical info and visits to sites itself is very minimal. We stopped at only 3 places, with one just being a pub next to a graveyard where you had to buy your own drink. The guide was very entertaining, but it wasnt like haunted tours I've taken before. More of a comedy routine with jump scares.

    The humour, great way to learn about the history of dublin and see some very old historical buildings

    Had a very memorable experience on the tour. Well organised and acting by the team. Added mystery with the themed bus and special effects

    Great time. Tour guides were very friendly, and knowledgeable about Dublin’s history of death. Very informative, not to sound macab but also fun and entertaining.

    Okay tour, but not worth the price. The acting and dedication was great, but the whole setup was off. The bus was stiflingly hot. The windows were blacked out and further covered with thick curtains, which I understand add to the spooky affect, but was oppressive and detracted from the "tour" aspect. The stories felt rushed and disjointed; I hardly remembered any of them at the end of the tour. The little drink we got as part of it was half an ounce of weird green juice that was not good. The main actor/storyteller was having a good time, and I could tell he enjoyed what he was doing. However, the cheap Halloween costume and messy makeup made the whole ordeal feel gimmicky. Overall, I hope that this tour has an opportunity to grow and adapt into a more sophisticated and put together operation. As is, I would rather not spend my money.

    We had a great time on this tour. It’s a great way to learn some fun facts and good stories about Dublin! The guides were funny and very engaging. We did expect to see a little more of the city, but it is still worth it to do this tour to hear the stories and have a good laugh!
