This Gravediggers night tour takes you through the Middle Ages aboard a double-decker bus in the company of a macabre guide. Listen to the scary stories, myths and legends of the time when the plague struck Dublin. Enjoy the views of the city with a disturbing night light while the guide is telling macabre tales. And finally, quench your thirst with a truculent drink in the Gravediggers pub.
The guide dressed as Gravediggers is an accredited expert specializing in the creepy and the macabre. He is also an actor with the gift of the word, so be prepared to hear dark stories with a good dose of black humor.
You will get on the double-decker bus near Trinity College and travel to the Middle Ages, passing through Dublin Castle, St. Audoen’s Church (also known as “Hell”), Kilmainhan Prison, Bully’s Acre Cemetery, Church from San Michan and Croppies Acre.
He hears stories of plague sufferers: how they bathed in the city’s drinking water or how the mayor tried to control the plague; and hear the sound of rattling bones, howling wolves and heartbreaking screams. (NOTE: You may be screaming at them).
If you panic too much, don’t worry. They will give you a horrifying drink for free at the Gravediggers pub to calm your nerves.
