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.

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.

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.

Fantastic tour! I do recommend this one to give you a good orientation or deeper understanding of Dublins history. Was really interesting to hear about the different stories about spots around Dublin. Its not super scary or anything, just some good tales about the parts of history and spooky stories you wouldn’t hear about at school. Following the tour we learnt of some cool places to visit during the day, which we could view with more knowledge making the place more interesting. Shout out to the guide Katie or Kate? - did a really good job with tour!

Fun and full of history facts you've never heard! Our main lead, 'Grim', and cohort whose real name is Lea, along with driver Pete provided an excellent evening of fun! However... there was no HEAT! Everyone was cold, including them. Loved the tricks up their sleeves! Beware... there are strobe lights, but just let them know when you get on board and they will happily turn them off if they negatively affect you.

It was amazing!! We shuddered, laughed, chatted. The girls were really good in their role, they kept us captivated and were also hilarious!! Thoroughly enjoyed!! Highly recommended!

It’s a fun walk around Dublin with interesting stories. We usually prefer day time walking tours, but this fit our schedule better and did not disappoint

Our tour guide was great! I would recommend this to anyone looking for something different and interesting to do at night.
