Overview of the tour in Dublin

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.
