My review isn't really about the museum as it was closing when we arrived, but rather the cemetery. There are so many important historical and cultural figures laid to rest here. It was much larger than we had estimated, and just barely had time to wander around and greet our favorites. Lovely setting, and something about being there around dusk... More

I visited Glasnevin Cemetery this morning for a tour. It was an excellent trip which gave a fascinating insight into many key figures and events from Ireland's history over the last 200 years. From O'Connell to Collins, Parnell, Countess Markeviecz, de Valera, O'Donovan Rossa, Elizabeth Farrell, Jim Larkin and others there are so many amazing stories of their lives, their... More

Anyone visiting Glasnevin Cemetery should consider availing of guided tour the cemetery is huge and hours could be wasted searching from areas of interest. Our guide gave sufficient historical information to maintain interest and entertained us with graveyard anecdotes. Duration of tour almost 2 hours, a lot of standing so walking shoes a must. Endless photo opportunities beautiful high crosses... More

A little bit of history, art and just a nice thing to do on a weekend day. A really interesting tour. Nice that's it's a little outside the city centre so you can drive there, plenty of parking nearby.

A really interesting and informative tour. I would recommend the guided tour otherwise you would miss out on a lot of things. Our tour guide Paddy was extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. An hour and a half passed really quickly. The cafe there is also worth a visit.
