Glasnevin cemetry is obviously of particular interest to Irish people as historic characters we've all grown up hearing about are buried there. However it's the quality of their guides that make it stand apart. They are deeply knowledgeable and make the tour as good as anything you'll get in Dublin.

When my gf said she wanted to visit a cemetary I lol'd. I thought she was joking but she assured me it was beautiful. It didn't disappoint and this is coming from a guy in his early 20's. Will be back again for sure, brilliant day!

The visitor's center was excellent including reasonably priced quality lunches. Tour guides very knowledgable and well worth doing otherwise the size of the grounds leaves you lost as to where to visit.

The tour of the cemetery is just wonderful. This was my second time taking the tour and it's even better than two years ago. Our tour guide, Laura, was so interesting and knowledgeable. The actors rendition of Pearse's speech at the grave of O ' Donovan Rossa was dramatic and emotive. Really recommend this tour, a great way to pass... More

On the advice of a guide at Kilmainham Gaol, I took a trip out to this wonderful Necropolis! The history of Ireland is here. It is touching and very emotional. As a member of The IWW, I got to stand at the grave of "Big" Jim Larkin, the man who gave one of the speeches at Joe Hill's funeral. I... More
