As part of an Irish land cruise for holidays this year, I did the Red Bus hop on, hop off bus in Dublin (19 euro for a 2 day ticket), on day two we took the Blue Route and hopped off at Glasnevin, was only going to just have a look around the cemetery but the weather was fine so... More

Glasnevin cemetery has been on my list of places to go for a long time. A sunny day off work and a few hours to spare in Dublin, I booked online and made my way there. The tour started at 11.30 am so I had an hour to browse the museum which is extremely informative. The tour started then with... More

Went to Glasnevin Cemetery Museum today, it was a truely brilliant tour. Paddy our tour guide made it so interesting and the knowledge he had was amazing. Even though you know some of the history of the people buried there, there was still a lot to learn. You can get to the Botanic Gardens from the cemetery which was brilliant... More

For years Glasnevin cemetery is a place that intrigued me from an historical point of view. I was not disappointed. We arrived for the 11.30 am tour. The hour and half the tour took flew past as we were catapulted through irish history. It was amazing how light hearted a sombre topic could be. Our tour guide had a brilliant... More

We enjoyed the guided walking tour immensely. There is no admission fee to just walk around the cemetery, but the guided tour has a fee. I wholeheartedly recommend it to get a fuller experience and much more information about this historic Dublin cemetery. The tour was full of history, much of which was unfamiliar to me as an American with... More

The museum and grounds are free and lovely and all, but you would really be missing out if you did not do a walking tour. Our guide (Bridget, I think) was fantastic. A little shy of 2 hours for the whole tour, it began with an actor's fantastic rendition of Pearse's oration of O'Donavon Rosa, moving on to the burial... More

A small party of 3 booked a guided tour and had the guide to ourselves. She was very informative and able to answer all our questions.

Don't hesitate to go. The cemetery reeks with atmosphere and has been extensively renovated and tidied since the ramshackle days of neglect. The tour is very good (takes about an hour and a quarter), our guide Niall spoke clearly and well, and threw in a good few quips (he did have to explain to one of the Americans that the... More

Very impressed, we didnt go in the museum but we walked the cemetary and the botanical gardens. Theres a lovely outdoor tea room and a little shop by the museum. It was free to walk but a few euros for the tour into the crypt which we chose not to do as we walked round ourselves. You can pick out... More
