Everything you've heard or read about Glasnevin is true - particularly if you have an interest in Irish history, you could easily spend a whole day and still want more. As our wonderfully professional tour guide said, Glasnevin is for everyone, for those of every religion and none. So, I'll just reiterate the praise for Bridget who is by far... More

A bit off the beaten track but the tour is very informative for both adults and kids. A nice way to spend a couple of hours and there's a coffee shop you can relax in afterwards.

Although advertised as 90 minutes, I think ours lasted about 1 hour and 45 minutes if not longer. My only complaint is that it was't longer because I thoroughly enjoyed listening to our wonderful tour guide, Bridget. I'd say she had a much further wealth of knowledge than 90 minutes allowed and had to stop herself rambling once or twice.... More

Having a love of Irish history and having heard great things about this tour, I went with high expectations, the tour surpassed these! Our tour Niall was genuinely brilliant. He was informative and engaging. He treated the cemetery with the respect it deserves while keeping us all very entertained. He brought the names on the headstones to life with his... More

We went for a tour here yesterday (23.01.15), I knew Id enjoy it as I had a fair idea who was buried here. I didnt realise I would enjoy it as much. The tour guide Bridget was amazing. A great story teller and full of great facts. Great sense of humour also. Very well laid out tour, not too long... More

I was extremely impressed by the Glasnevin Cemetery Museum and Tour. Our tour guide was interesting, informative and funny in all the right places. This is a great tour through which to pay respect to Irish men and women as well as an awesome history lesson. The museum is creative and interesting and worth checking out. The value is great...

We visited here during the Xmas break - cold it was, but our guide was wonderfully informative. Rather emotive being surrounded by so many graves, and to hear the stories of some of these peoples lives - is quite profound. I cannot wait to go back and just wander around the cemetery without doing the tour. The grounds are massive... More
