About this event

Join us on an adventure across Dublin city hearing the myths and the terrifying legends that stalk our streets.

Visit haunted buildings, hear harrowing tales of horror and creepy legends.

Discover some stories from the past and a different side to Dublin

We have a long tradition of storytelling in Ireland and our oldest stories are of the banshees, the ghosts and the things that keep you up at night.

These stories were traditionally told around a fire but we will be heading to the spaces where these things happened, hearing the stories and seeing for ourselves.

Embrace the supernatural and come on a ghostly adventure with us.

Some of what we cover:

-Maud Gonne's shocking ghostly secrets

-The unexplained terrors that have been seen in the Shelbourne hotel

-The grisly hangings near St Stephens Green

-The gruesome tales of the Tenements

-The 'Resurrection Men'

-Charlie Parker and the haunting of the Olympia Theatre

-The Zombie experimenter of Anglesea Street

-Darkey Kelly and her basement of Bodies

-The Dolocher, The Demon pig of Dublin

& So much more!


We are also now doing private tours for groups, if you want to host your own tour get in touch with us.
