I came here with teenagers and we all really enjoyed the visit, our tour guide was really engaging and knowledgeable and told lots of great stories. We also loved interactive museum after the tour. Well worth a visit

“Glasnevin Cemetery Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised at this very interesting tour. Trying to entertain 12 year olds on a freezing cold day is nearly impossible. They were fascinated at Neills stories of rebellion and civil war. The stories were told quite factually which made them really come to life. The museum itself is very well laid out with great exhibits and the coffee shop well worth a visit. We also got to rub Daniel O'Connells coffin which is supposed to bering good luck! Again well done Neill. Also for people interested in genealogy there are computers available to do a search of your ancestors buried in the cemetery.

“Great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I really enjoyed the tour as the guide was very informative and you got to see a lot of the graveyard which would normally be missed if you went around yourself. The tour is good value for money and I would recommend it for anyone even with a passing interest in history.

“Glasnevin Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Despite the fact that it is a cemetery one might feel that this would not be the place to go. On the contrary, it is an excellent choice and tours are arranged which cover the history or the cemetery and highlight the various historic events and the people involved in the fight for freedom.

“A must-do for tourists & Irish alike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

This had been on my list for some time, and I was not disappointed when I finally got around to doing the tour. I would recommend to all Irish, as well ad visitors; but the in-depth, though not weighty, history and little-known facts would resonate more with those connected to that history. The resources in the museum are modern and impressive, and the guide in the tour was bright and informative, without losing our attention.
