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.

Excellent presentation by both guides to the two groups(approx. 35 per group) of twelve year olds. Held the students in the palms of their hands with thoroughly professional and interesting presentations. Very relevant material related to the sixth class history curriculum.Students thoroughly engaged in the learning process and hence not a discipline problem in sight!!! Will definitely be back.

This is a cemetery you must visit while you're still vertical. It has a long and colourful history which is brought to life (no pun intended) by the excellent tour guides.

Museum is a boring replica of the amazing Cemetery tour. Highly recommend the Cemetery but if you skip the museum, I don't think you are missing much.

If you thought visiting a graveyard was unusual you would be right. However if you want to understand Irish history i cant think of a better way. Some of the facts about the graveyard are mind boggling and quiet shocking but you wont be dissapointed. The guide Cathy was excellent knowledgeable and witty.Just remember the dead are all around you!

What can you say. The tour is amazing and you are walking in a sacred place where the brave are buried. Michael Collins, Harry Boland, Maude Gomme, Countess Marchiovici...all of the amazing Rising Patriots including this executed in May of 1916. There is also,a women's tour that we haven't gone to,yet but definitely will. This will stir your spirit and... More
