Description: The Ghost Bus Tour Includes A FREE GHOULISH DRINK at the Gravediggers Pub, AND A FREE HAUNTED HISTORY DUBLIN WALKING TOUR (taken separately) . The duration of the bus tour is approximately 2 hours.
The tour starts at Trinity College where your guide will transport you back some 600 years ago to when the old Augustinian Priory and of course the plague house were there. The latter of which the guide is all too familiar with...
But just ignore the coughing and listen to his tales of a plague-ravaged Dublin.
- Hear an account of plague victims trying to soothe their wounds in the waters of the city's drinking supplies.
- Learn about the mayors schemes to try and keep the disease at bay
- And discover the fates of all those poor souls who found themselves infected with the disease. Many were ostracised, but some suffered an end much, much worse.
Many believed that the plague was the end of days, but the history of Dublin and its horrors continued.
