Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum are both the guardians and storytellers for over 1.5 million people. From the ordinary to the truly extraordinary, these people helped shape the Ireland of today. We want to share their stories and times with you through tours of the cemetery, a visit to the museum or through a genealogy search for your family history.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and all proceeds are used to sustain and improve our cemeteries to ensure they are places of beauty, interest and intrigue.

I did this tour a couple of years back with fairly low expectations. How wrong was I, it was fantastic. An actor was on hand at O’Donnavan Rossa’s grave to deliver Padraig Pearse’s famous graveside oration. With the hairs standing on the backs of our necks we continued the tour where we visited the final resting places of Daniel O’Connell,... More

The most important cemetery in the country. It's full of famous names and has an interesting museum. I'd recommend to take the guided tour.

Usually I would be put off at the prospect of a housebroken busker reciting a hundred-year-old funeral oration but the fellow carried it off quite well. The woman running the tour was also knowledgeable and clear and everything a tour guide should be. We saw all the top graves in less time than it would have taken on our own,... More

Had a fascinating walk around the home to many great Irishmen, including possibly the greatest of them all Michael Collins. Right beside the cemetery is The Gravediggers (Kavanagh) Pub, which is steeped in history, has a beautiful old interior, and a wonderful ambience. Visit both

After visiting a family grave on a really cold windy day we were all delighted to find the cafe & go in for coffee & cake. The price for the small cakes & even smaller coffees was ridiculously high for such an ordinary cafe. We all felt annoyed with ourselves that we paid these prices & didn't just go somewhere... More

We stopped at Glasnevin Cemetery one morning on our trip to Dublin, we are very glad we did. Even without the guided tour, the cemetery is beautiful to just walk around and look. Though a cemetery, the beauty of the place and the notion that we were circulating through the history surpassed any depressing feeling. The Glasnevin Cemetery is adjacent... More
