Christchurch Cathedral Macabre Dublin Tour

Tour Details

Join us for a wander through the old city centre of Dublin as we explore both sides of the river whilst listening to stories about the more gruesome part of the city’s history. Hear the story of the Death of Cuchulainn, the mighty warrior who had his eyes pecked out by the raven on his shoulder and learn about the thriving 19th-century business of grave robbing beside the city mortuary.

Close to the old city walls, you will be amazed by stories of mummified corpses, legless serial killers and man-eating rats. To finish, beside the cathedral, you will hear of Dublin’s most famous brothel keeper and her untimely demise by fire at the stake.

What to Expect

We will meet beside the Spire in the middle of O’Connell street (Look for the yellow umbrella!) to ramble through some of the lesser-known areas of the old city as we describe some of the more gruesome parts of the history of Dublin.
