Dublin After Dark: Untold Tales of the Paranormal

History hides thousands of forgotten tales, and while every city claims to have paranormal activity, few can equal Dublin’s rich experiences of centuries of supernatural encounters that have been retold across the world. From former Viking enclaves to modern apparitions of the Virgin Mary, the ground which you will walk over is never silent. The graves of the deconsecrated in Croppie’s Acre; a mass burial site of executed Irish rebels after the failed 1798 rebellion, and stories of those whose lives were cut too short still have much to say, including the famed Irish rebel hung for treason, Robert Emmet, who is said to still occupy the Brazen Head and not yet allowed to rest fully in peace. Join us as we get to know Halloween, which itself comes from the ancient Gaelic festival of Samhain to welcome in the ‘dark half’ of the year. Whether you’re interested in the most haunted houses in Dublin on Hendrick Street, fascinated by the medieval thief who guards his treasure in the tunnels under Smithfield, or open to be spooked by numerous tales of paranormal activity in a former hospital, this citywalk is for you. Along the way you may even encounter Billy the Bowl; the 18th century murderer born without legs and the infamous ‘Hanging Judge’ who still seeks to hand down his unique brand of justice, you’ll come to appreciate the sites and stories where famed authors such as Sheridan Le Fanu and Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula, gathered their inspiration. Meeting point is directly outside The Bull and Castle Pub, opposite the entrance to Christchurch Cathedral. Look out for the orange Stroll backpack!

    Though it wasn't quite Dublin after Dark (summer time light) our tour guide, Jack, was still brilliant. Very informative and a very good story teller. The time went effortlessly and seeing the sites of Dublin that we had wouldn't have thought to try and see was fascinating. Highly recommended!
