The Ghostbus storytellers bring tales from Dublin’s dark history to life.

You’ll experience a crash course in the art of body snatching form the handbook of Dr Samuel Clossey himself as well as visiting the scenes of some of Dublin’s most horrific and shocking paranormal activities.

The actors strike the perfect mix between comedy and horror. So don’t worry it won’t be too scary… This tour is suitable for 14+.

Kilkenny Ghost Tour

Head to Kilkenny to venture through the medieval city and bump into a haunt or two.

The Kilkenny people have told stories for generations, handed down to become far more than hearsay.

Kilkenny’s ghostly tales all have one very important thing in common they are all based around fact and arise from genuine historic tragedies. Each tour will be guide by one of the characters (The Witch, Dr Death, Highwayman, Priest Hunter, the Monk or the Banshee).
