Visited Glasnevin Cemetery Museum with a large group. We had a very informative tour of the graveyard with our excellent guide, Paddy. The Museum is very well laid out and very interesting. Excellent coffee shop & facilities. Def going to return to wander around the cemetery and also spend some more time in the museum.

Beautiful museum. Great for visiting before you wander through the cemetery. The Cemetery itself is beautiful and haunting.

My wife's family are buried here and we found the cemeteries staff extremely helpful tracking the location for us. Well worth the visit. Ireland builders and patriots are interned here.

If you can only see one sight in Dublin, see this place. Take a guided tour to get the stories and history. If you are a descendant from family who left Ireland because of the famine or injustice, this will be a touching experience for you visit and learn about those who fought for a free Ireland. I recommend Kilmainham... More

Great tour today with Bridget. So much information and history stories I've never learnt in books. Shame the rain came on but would take the tour again. Should be part of the school curriculum. It's such recent history.
