1. Dublin Walking Tour: The Dark Side
Make your way through church graveyards and down narrow back alleys to discover a side of Dublin that you won't find on any postcards. Hear gruesome stories of brothels run by serial killers, cannibals with a taste for young children, and the notorious Hellfire Club, said to be made up of Devil worshippers! Journey through the folklore of Ireland and get introduced to fairies, banshees, and leprechauns. Hear how Halloween originated from the Gaelic harvest festival of Samhain when, according to legend, beings from the spiritual world could cross dimensions more easily. Admire the stunning architecture of ancient buildings such as Dublin Castle, said to be haunted with the souls of beheaded invaders. Learn about the young boy who is said to stroll around the Olympia Theatre, and get a closer look at the spooky mummies on display at St Michan's Church.
