Spooky Dublin

Welcome to Dublin… and get ready to be scared. Be very very scared! There has to be something in the water when Dublin inspired Bram Stoker to write his famous Dracula here in Dublin, and that is just the beginning of everything scary and spooky Dublin has to offer! If you are into little bit more atmospheric experiences, if you are not scared of things that go bump in the night and if you have silver dagger and garlic supply at the ready, here are just some of “little bit different” experiences you can have in Dublin! 

Ghost bus
Original and world first ghost bus is a perfect way to get to know some of the legends and spine-tingling stories of Dublin’s past. Your tour will include stories of body snatching, graveyard visits, and supernatural events at Dublin Castle. Not for the faint of heart!  

Hellfire Club tour
For something little bit different try Hellfire Club tour and venture out of Dublin City to discover ghastly past. You will be taken to Dublin Mountains, to visit the burnt out shell of Hellfire Club- haunted hunting lodge dating from 1725 is known for its association with Satanism, the supernatural and the occult. You will be rewarded by stunning views of Dublin, that is, if you survive… 

 

Castle Dracula
Travel back in time and meet characters from Bram Stoker’s Dracula as they roam around Castle Dracula! Did you know that Bram Stoker was born beside the castle? What inspired him to write this legendary tale? Learn about history, myth and magic in this unique place! There is now whole festival dedicated to Bram Stoker on Halloween weekend, but you can visit Castle Dracula every Saturday for a bit of spooky fun!

Kilmainham Gaol

Famous for its political inmates, Kilmainham Gaol held prisoners from all parts of Ireland, charged with petty crimes as well as serious ones, while waiting on their transport to Australia. This is great museums to visit, but remember to book your ticket online. You can only gain access with a tour and there usually isn’t much walk in places left on the day.

 

You can also just discover spooky dublin stories hidden in the plain sight… like the history of Darkey Kelly’s Pub or Kavanagh’s “Gravediggers” one (clue us in the name!). This is cool list of Dublin’s most haunted pubs, we recommend checking them out! What’s better than learning about spooky history while having few cold ones?
