Quote of the Post: "Some buses look pretty from outside, may scare you, when you are actually in." - Quote about Dublin Ghost Bus Tour - Sachin Gupta

Before coming to Ireland, I decided to visit world's oldest unique Dublin ghost bus tour. It was in my 'to visit' list after majestic Cliffs of Moher. I combined this tour with the Dublin Hop on - Hop off bus tour to save some euros. Ghost bus is the eye-catcher to all pedestrians all around. It is decorated suitably inside and out with dark and curtained window.
Let's make you all uncomfortable because you are entering the world of Dracula written by great Irish novelist Bram Stoker. As you enter the double-decker bus, You will be welcomed with ghost music and haunted tunes with mild light.
Before bus started, a skeleton pop out near the stairs of upper deck of the bus. The one who was nearest, screamed. Its good to have screamers to enjoy with the dark romance of the city of gaslight ghosts and chilling legends.
Our bus started, and a man comes with a rat that rounds over our face, that was our guide. It really on our skin goosebumps and some of us screamed again. It was a wizard feeling, though I know it was not a original rat.
Through the route, the guide told us about the origins of Dracula, Bram Stoker, and some famous Irish scary stories along with some quiz. During the tour we have two stops, where we saw body snatching at St Kevin's Graveyard and most haunted 40 steps.
St. Audoen's church and the 40 steps: This is one of Dublin's best kept secrets, few people get to pass through the ancient gates of this most haunted place. It is the place where the apparition of the "green lady" has been reported for generations. Though some people reported and claimed some strange images in their cameras as well.

During the end of the tour, lights go out completely and guide narrate another gruesome story. and then.. then.. a sprinkle of water, shivers our whole body with goosebumps.

Note: This tour is neither for children under 14 years and nor for nervous breakdown people.

Have a look to another adventurous Cyprus undersea walk experience.
