A trip to a graveyard hardly sounds like something you'd want to be adding to your To Do list but having seen what Glasnevin Cemetery has to offer I would highly recommend you add it to your list. The tour guides bring the history of the place to life (pardon the pun!) and it is very obvious that they enjoy... More

This is one of my favourite places in Dublin. You can book a tour (they have a choice of several topics and for groups you can even design your own based on your interests), or just wander around. I love going there to take atmospheric photos, especially of the old graves at the back. I often combine my visit with... More

Over the years visiting the cemetery it has become so much more than visiting loved ones in their last resting place. The stories of the people interned there are very interesting.

The graves of Delia and James Larkin lie close to William Martin Murphy's memorial and there are many other instances of sworn enemies in life placed in proximity in death. Until relatively recently I had never visited the... More

Went her yesterday with a group of school pupils. It is excellent, for anyone with an interest in history, or just so society in General, this is well worth a visit. The guide was outstanding and the tour was so interesting. I would definitely recommend this place for a visit.

The above two words are the name of a book written by one of the guides of Glasnevin Shane Mac Thomais who sadly passed from this life this March 2014. I never had a tour with Shane but by all accounts his was one of the best but all the guides here have a love of place and history I... More
