After the tour of the Kilmainham Prison this morning I knew I needed to go to the Glasnevin Cemetery and pay my respects to the brave patriots that died for their independence from Britain. I didn't want to take a tour since I've been of holiday for 4 months with 2 months to go so I'm a bit toured out!... More

The museum, cemetery, quality of food and service in the restaurant were all of excellent standard. However the tour guide, Brigid was exceptional. She had endless knowledge and made the tour one of the most interesting I have ever taken. She created an atmosphere among those on the tour, everyone (foreign visitors included) rushed after her so that a single... More

That's the biggest cemetery I've ever seen in Ireland! It takes your breath away. There's a lot of history in a such evocative place. Take a walk in completely peace of mind.

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
