It may feel strange to follow a guided tour of a cemetery. This tour is still recommended, where one stops at a variety graves of famous Irishmen and gain insight into their personal and social history. It gives a good addition to understanding Irish history.

The stories provided an enormous background to Ireland's Modern History. The guide made the time fly with the richness of her presentation

This is one of the places that I had been meaning to visit for ages, but my associations with cemetery's are always of being wet and miserable so had never actual made it. When you visit make sure you get a guided tour as they bring this place to life (excuse bad pun) ;-) They really are passionate about their... More

Attended tour given by Guide Annie on Sunday 24 August. She was an excellent guide - and so considerate and kind to two wheelchair users and a special needs girl in the group.

I have to start by saying I am Irish and live only a few minutes away from this graveyard. This tour was really great, even though I knew a lot of the history of the people that are buried here as I would have studied them in school this tour was really interesting and thought me a lot more than...

I took the tour for the second time in April. Our guide was called Paddy and he was an absolute star. Before we started he asked each person where they were from and he was able to give each person or group a little nugget of information relating to their county or country and Glasnevin. I thought this was a... More

This is well worth a visit. The history of the cemetery is just amazing and I can't believe I haven't visited before now. We had brilliant tour guide called Annie and she just knew everything about who was buried there. Missed the first 30mins of the tour so will definitely be back.

The tour takes about 1.5 hours, it's informative and enjoyable. Appreciated the personal stories and the humour and the recognition of potential political sensitivities. Nice cafe too.

Well worth a visit if you have a few days in Dublin. You learn so much about the city, its people and its history. Tour guide was excellent and service in the museum was good. So much history in one graveyard!

Brilliant, I didn't know I could spend 6 hours going through a grave yard. The guided tour is a must and there is so much history in in place. a+
