Ghostly Pub Tour

Min group size 10 people

If you have a love of things that go bump in the night (no not that!), then you will love our Ghostly Pub Tour of Cork. This is a unique experience that brings together yarns and tales of grave robbers, pirates and head hunters and other locals from around the city.


Meeting outside Cork Opera House, you will intrepidly embark up the ancient streets around Shandon where the streets once ran red with the blood of slaughtered animals. Over the space of 2 hours you will stop into one of the many spooky watering holes where an air of doom pervades and where the walls stand mute witness to ancient terrors.


Then it’s along the river quays, to the last marshes left in Cork before your last stop of the evening – The Franciscan Well, reputedly Cork’s most haunted pub. Back in the mists of time there once stood a monastery with a Holy Well on this very spot where people from far and wide used to come to have evil spirits driven from them. It obviously worked because the only spirits found now are in bottles!


After an evening of walking, laughing and imbibing, it’s time for some food, before you take on your own night time adventures.

“We all thoroughly enjoyed the wit, banter and historical titbits. Buckley’s bar was a major success and the owner was so welcoming and joined us for a few songs, with his guitar (and the resident ‘stool’ bodhran player…), a great place! ”

“The tour was excellent. Damien and Kitty were great “ghost hosts”. Very entertaining, humorous and factual of course!
A great show and they were so lovely to be with, and shepherded us around the streets of Shandon and the hostelries there also.”

“Fantastic! From start to finish our tour guide kept us in stitches with his ad lib commentary, we never laughed so much. We loved the tour along the narrow winding streets and there were more than a few surprises along the way to keep us entertained. Highly recommended!”
