Tour description

Hello! My name is John, I am a tour guide with 5+ years of experience here in Dublin City! Join my Dark Dublin tour and take an ominous walk around Dublin City, with stories about death, torture and mayhem that has plagued this beautiful city!

We start the tour at Barnardo Square and end near Smithfield Square, hearing stories including: 

  • The Smithfield Strangler
  • The Great Dublin Whiskey Fire
  • The theft of the Irish Crown Jewels
  • The escape of Red Hugh O'Donnell
  • Brothel owner/serial killer Darkey Kelly
  • The Dolocher (Dublin's Demonic Pig)
  • Dublin Castle and it's history of torture
  • The birthplace of Dracula

This is a tour for those who take delight in the sinister and the macabre, and of all the tours I offer this one is my favourite!

(Tour lasts between 2 hours and 90 minutes depending on foot traffic)
