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.

I visited the centre recently and took the guided tour of the cemetery. Our guide Bridget brought the history of those buried to life and was both entertaining and informative. The presentation of the o Donovan Rossa oration was particularly impressive. Well worth a visit.

I cannot fault the Tour Guide as he was interesting however it was a particularly cold & windy day so I had to leave early. I would certainly recommend this particular attraction as it has fascinating history. It has an amazing cemetery & I would have gladly walked around it had it been a warmer day. Well worth a visit.....

This tour had been highly recommended by a number of friends, so during our current visit to Ireland we decided to give it a try. We certainly weren't disappointed, as this was one of the most interesting experiences we've had for some time. We arrived early so we could have something to eat and look around the museum before the... More

A lot of historical figures are buried here. A good combination would be the Botanical gardens and the Cemetery as both are close.

I recommend having the guided tour of the cemetery. The guides are informative and entertaining. The scale of Glasnevin is staggering and an absolute must see.

Hands down the best tour I've ever done in Ireland. And the best tour guide by a mile. Highly recommended to tourists and Irish alike.

It's a beautiful place and it's a very emotive tour. The explanation about O'Conell's grave is amazing and it's totally worth it. Plus is right next to the Botanical Garden, which is a must as well.

I have visited the Cemetery and the Museum on a number of occasions, both on my own, with my wife and with my teenage son. We were all hugely fascinated on each occasion. There are so many ways to come at the information and sights available, that you really can come back again and again. I would definitely try to... More

Worth ever penny and more,very informative lovely young lady Anna who did the tour was marvelous despite her being a little under the weather and contending with the cold wind that blew us around the cemetery.The tour lasted a good hour and a half. Finished off with a couple of pints of Guinness in the "Gravediggers" pub just outside the... More

I loved the inside Museum and the touch screen display plus the cigarette tin that saved a soldiers life! Staff are on hand too to do a genealogy search for your ancestors and there are lovely items to buy in the shop, I bought a Glasnevin coin among other things. The cemetery (which is the biggest in Ireland) tour lasts... More
