Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum are both the guardians and storytellers...

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.

A very interesting and brilliantly guided tour of this magnificent cemetery. Conor our guide displayed wide ranging knowledge of the cemetery which he delivered brilliantly to our TY History students. A must for all Leaving Cert History students and very reasonably priced.

After a few days in Dublin we learnt a lot of its history and famous people that shaped the city and here so many are buried. We had a really good guide - an older gent - who must really love his job and made the afternoon extremely enjoyable.

We were privileged to have a lady (Bridget) as our tour guide - no relation, never met her before. When you meet someone who knows her/his subject, and is enthused by it, you are drawn into it almost hypnotically. The place, monuments and history are interesting in themselves, but when you have a guide with such a fund of knowledge... More

My husband and I took this tour following the reviews on here. We arrived early so be warned the tours only take place at 11.30 and 2.30. However our tour guide Paddy was fantastic, his knowledge wit and humour made the tour fantastic. We enjoyed every minute despite the cold, if you get a chance make this a must do!

You must take a guided tour,because it is too much information to read them. Self tour is 4€, guided tour 8€. Bus number 40 from city centre of Dublin.

If you only have time to see one thing in Dublin, make it Glasnevin Cemetery. Constructed in the early 19th century, the cemetery now holds the remains of over one and a half million Irish dead. Famous writers and politicians, martyred rebels, and many other colourful personalities are buried on site. The museum and the accompanying tours offer a chance... More

A most enjoyable afternoon a trip around the graveyard with knowledgable tour guides with great enthusiasm for Irish history told at the grave sides of the characters from the history of the state. Access to the museum also some very interesting exhibitions. A seperate follow up Halloween tour to frighten the kids was great fun

Being walked through this place is similar to being taken to a sort of bizarre dysfunctional family graveyard. Everyone seems to have killed their own cousin and still be buried next to them. I'm Irish and I have a very basic knowledge of Irish history and the tour guide enlightened me well with a seemingly casual tour. Lot's to be... More

You must go here if you're an Irish history buff. Take the tour then explore on your own. Reserve the tour on line. Arrive an hour before your tour so you can go through the museum. There is a very nice café on the premises so include lunch in your plans if you can. You can take the #40 bus... More
