The recommendation to come to Glasnevin came from a chance conversation with Eamon – lead singer with The Brazen Hussies (c/o The Brazen Head). Discussing how we might fill our Monday, prior to our early evening flight back to Manchester, he suggested this visit. There were reservations, but the four of us went with it. We absolutely loved it! Although... More

I took the guided tour and it was a revelation! Our guide (Paddy) was a mine of information and anecdotes. He interacted very well on a personal level with the mixed group. If you have any interest in Irish history you simply have to visit here. I think there is enough human interest to engage a general audience too. There... More

We visited Glasnevin cemetery at the weekend and did the guided tour, it was excellent. The guides are superb. You don't get a ready made speech, each tour is different and the guides are so knowledgable that they could throw out facts on all questions asked of them. This is a value for money tour and is a very enjoyable... More

We discovered Glasnevin Cemetery by accident while en-route to the Botanical Gardens and decided to explore on our way back to the bus. We did not go on the guided tour (having learned from past experience on visits to Ireland that tours can be very long), choosing instead to purchase a map and guide book at the gift shop/ticket office...

We took the walking tour based on trip advisor reviews. I don't regret taking the tour, however it was very long at 2 hours and 15 minutes. By the time an hour and 30 minutes had passed, I was ready to call it a day with sore feet. My kids, who are usually great on tours, were getting really fidgety... More

As part of an Irish land cruise for holidays this year, I did the Red Bus hop on, hop off bus in Dublin (19 euro for a 2 day ticket), on day two we took the Blue Route and hopped off at Glasnevin, was only going to just have a look around the cemetery but the weather was fine so... More

Glasnevin cemetery has been on my list of places to go for a long time. A sunny day off work and a few hours to spare in Dublin, I booked online and made my way there. The tour started at 11.30 am so I had an hour to browse the museum which is extremely informative. The tour started then with... More

Went to Glasnevin Cemetery Museum today, it was a truely brilliant tour. Paddy our tour guide made it so interesting and the knowledge he had was amazing. Even though you know some of the history of the people buried there, there was still a lot to learn. You can get to the Botanic Gardens from the cemetery which was brilliant... More

For years Glasnevin cemetery is a place that intrigued me from an historical point of view. I was not disappointed. We arrived for the 11.30 am tour. The hour and half the tour took flew past as we were catapulted through irish history. It was amazing how light hearted a sombre topic could be. Our tour guide had a brilliant... More
