This is a must while in Dublin. The headstones here are beautiful. There are many famous people laid to rest here. Connolly tomb is very elaborate. Our guide was so knowledgeable. One of the people that was apart of our group had an ancestor buried there and they helped her find him.

Don't miss a visit to Glasnevin when you're in Dublin! Packed with the history of Dublin and Ireland. The museum is fascinating ans well worth visiting. The lives of so many ordinary yet great people unfold while the history of many others parts of Dublin and Ireland intertwine.

If you have even a passing interest in Irish history, you must visit Glasnevin cemetery. I highly recommend the tour for extra info or just stroll around and see what you can find. A great way to spend half a day.

We took the walking tour of the cemetery. Niall, our guide, was great, informative and humorous. Great history of the city and Ireland. The weather helped make this a very enjoyable afternoon. I would highly recommend it.

The tour of Glasnevin Cemetary was very good. The guide was full of information.It was so touching to visit the graves of so many great names from the history of our country. The high light for me was the re-enactment of Pearse's speech at the grave of Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa. I must say I had goose pimlpes as that fine... More

Our tour guide Jade was magnificent her love of history was obvious and infectious, I could've listened to her recant historical stories forever, her former history teacher was on our tour and I'm sure he was proud of his former student, I...

If you're into your Irish history this place is just great & I'd highly recommend it. Full of legends & also a nice wander through this pretty massive graveyard. All Irishman should take a trip to Mick Collins final resting place at least once in their life.

When we went it was rainy day so we started in the museum. Downstairs tells you about the graveyard and grave robbers. Theres a section about Daniel O'connell telling the history of his life and what he did for Ireland. The graveyard itself is massive it's spread over a few acres of land. You can go see the tomb of... More
