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.

All kidding aside, you would be a fool to miss this place. It was meant to be more than a place of morbid grief; it was meant to be park like; a place to go for peace and reflection. It succeeds; we felt like we could have spent hours and hours. It's truly fascinating. The highest of marks and appreciation... More

Watching 'One Million Dubliners' and enjoying every moment. Recently did the walking and museum tour of Glasnevin Cemetary with my sister and enjoyed every moment. It was such an informative experience and our tour guide delivered it with such passion and typical Irish banter and guile. I would recommend it to everybody living in Dublin. When you go on holidays... More

Went here after seeing the one Million Dubliners documentary, excellent trip and really worth it. Great value, if it's cold wrap up really well, especially your feet cause it gets really cold

I loved this visit - the museum was excellent but, in particular, I enjoyed the guided walk by the very knowledgable guide who shared passionately about Irish social and political history.

It sounds like an odd thing to say that the highlight of any visit to Dublin is a visit to a cemetery—but it is entirely true! Glasnevin is no ordinary cemetery: it includes the graves of some of the major figures in Irish history and culture (Daniel O'Connell, Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael Collins, Éamon de Valera, Maude Gonne, Roger Casement,...

Went to visit Glasnevin 'Cemetery' last year reluctantly but was really glad I did. I didn't realise the depth of history that was behind those walls I passed by many times over the years. Was lucky to have experienced the tour provided by Shane MacThomais.. incredible knowledge of Dublin, Irish history. Shocked and saddened to learn of his death by... More

Glasnevin is a beautiful cemetery filled with some amazing stonework. It also provides the final resting place for many of Irelands famous figures. The cemetery itself is free to visit but they also have a museum on site if you wish to see that. Well worth the time and immediately adjacent to the botanical gardens.

This an excellent site to visit for people with an interest in modern Irish history or genealogy. The guides are very well informed, spontaneous and their presentation are laced with good humour. Initially, I thought that we would spend a good deal of the tour walking from grave to grave, but this is not the case as all the important... More

Went here in April, great if your into history. It was so good to see Glasnevin remembering all of its Irish dead including all those who fought during the Great wars, they were forgotten for too long. Well done Glasnevin.
