Overview

Explore Dublin’s gruesome stories of murder, torture, cannibalism, grave robbing, brothels, proposals to eat young children, unearthly worship and much more! We start our journey at Dublin Castle, where we will explore the torture of the past, speak of priest hunters and unearth why the upper courtyard was nicknamed the Devil’s Half Acre but behind the beautiful architecture is a brutal past. From here we’ll take the side streets to hear stories of cannibalism and of proposals to eat babies. As we delve further into Dublin’s dark past, we’ll enter an area once known as Hell. Uncover stories of brothels, witches, and the infamous Hellfire Club. Passing by the old city walls we’ll learn of grave robbing, The Black Pig, and finish with the very unusual case of a strangler and killer with no legs. Join us on this 2-hour walking tour as we weave our way through the city streets and back alleys to uncover Dublin’s Dark past.
  • Explore Dublin on foot with a small-group tour
  • Learn about dark history including murder and grave robbery

Fun experience filled with horrible stories and dark humour. Ciarón (did I spell that right?!) was a great guide. Met some nice people through the tour and learned a lot, an excellent way to spend an evening in Dublin.

My wife and I have been on this type of themed tour in many cities, and this was among the most informative and interesting. Cillian (sp?) was a great guide who held our interest. In fact, we wish we had time to take the daytime city tour with him. The tour seemed to be over in half of the time it actually took. We highly recommend this to anyone visiting Dublin.

Fantastic tour. The guide (I think his name was Kilian) was extremely knowledgeable on both history, as well as world history that coincided with Dublins time. This is a must do for anyone interested in history.

Great to hear history that you wouldn’t hear on more traditional tours. The guide, Cillian, was very knowledgeable and funny. It is dark material if you’re into that. 10/10

Definitely some dark history, but humor mixed in. Everyone in our group was talking about it at the pub that night. Our guide James was incredible. He has mighty 'craic'.
