It was very interesting to visit Glasnevin. They do wonderful work to maintain the cemetery and teach people about the history of the country. There is a coffee shop where you can sit down a while if you are too early for the tour and a shop where you can buy some books and things. The tour was presented very... More

Spent about 1 hour and 15mins in the Cemetary. Our tour guide knew his stuff and knew how to keep the crowd entertained. We enjoyed the coffee shop also with great food and drink, and they have put an entrance to the botanic gardens which is a lovely place for a stroll afterwards.

If you don't mind somber ambiance, walking between the tombstones then this is a perfect historic tour of the past populous of Ireland and those who wished to be laid to rest here. We enjoyed our walk seeing the family sites and tombs. This definitely is not for everyone however as I could see it being a tough one for... More

This was our second visit so we didn't take the tour this time but I strongly recommend that. And give yourself enough time to explore and wander around afterwards. The food in the cafe is good and reasonably priced. And it is worth going into the lovely botanic gardens as well. The curious minded and imaginative could easily spend a... More

Just a short bus ride outside of the city center, Glasnevin Cemetery is the final resting place for several historical figures in Irish history. This felt like a non-traditional thing to do as a tourist, which is why I loved it. I got to explore Dublin outside of the city center and learn about the country's history.

I visited with a group of friends and it was fantastic our guide made it all very interesting. We enjoyed a visit to the coffee shop while waiting for our tour, and after it we walked over to the botanic gardens. They are two fantastic facilities and well worth a visit especially now that the 1916 celebrations are cloning up.

Spent around 1 Hour in the cemetery. Brilliant to see all the graves of Dubliners past and present. Especially Ex-Presidents, Politians and one of the most famous, Michael Collins resting place. One thing I would say is signs are not great and finding the graves you are interested in can be a little bit of a struggle
