Never thought I would say I enjoyed visiting a cemetery! The guide was excellent, gave lots of information and was ready to answer all of our questions. The tour was an eye opener and the museum enjoyable. A definite must see!

Started with lunch in cafe. Delicious Chowder and herself has superfood salad. History tour led by Bridget who was super with a massive depth of information on hidden history as well as the more well known stuff. Highly recommended this.

This is a beautiful place to walk around. We did not take a guided tour, I am certain that would be very interesting. There is a lot of notable people in the history Ireland buried here. The statues, markers and high crosses are so interesting...More

We took the hop on bus to this stop to see the nearby gardens. But the cemetery itself is worth the visit. Wonderfully maintained, historic, and a great place to take a stroll.

A visit to Glasnevin is well worth while - extremely interesting. The whole experience is very well organised and it is also very handy for visiting the Gravediggers pub and the gardens.
