The Ghost Bus

When it comes to Paranormal Tourism in Dublin we haven't really got much, and with a reputation like Ireland has thats a real waste. Cities like Edinburgh have haunted tours on every corner so why is Dublin lacking so much?

Don't get me wrong the Dublin Ghost Bus is great craic. Its theatrical, entertaining and fairly unique, here's what they have to say about it on the website:

Dublin Tour - GhostBus
Let us put you at your unease on the world's only Ghostbus, and introduce you to the dark romance of a city of gaslight ghosts and chilling legends.

The bus itself is a unique attraction, it is a mobile theatre decorated in the gothic style and features a live storyteller who takes you on a spellbinding trip through Dublin. Once onboard, we take advantage of this atmospheric setting to spirit you away to a world of felons, fiends and phantoms and put you in the mood for being both charmed and spooked at the same time.

En route you learn the real origins of Dracula and his Dublin born inventor, Bram Stoker. We stop at the College of Physicians to recreate the strange activities of Dr. Clossy, whose spirit is still seen walking the corridors carrying a bucket of human entrails. We visit the site where Walking Gallows, the notorious judge, jury and hangman dispatched his victims in a most gruesome fashion.

This tour may not suit those of a nervous disposition!

Apart from that, the Zozimus Ghostly Experience and The Ghost Walk Macabre there's not much else in my area of interest happening in Irelands Capital City - hopefully that will start to change as the interest in all things Paranormal & Supernatural gets more popular.
