Worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood

Moving, historical cemetery. Walk towards the middle where you will see a memorial to the "volunteers", including Bobby Sands. A lovely, peaceful place.

This cemetery is absolutely amazing. Besides the fact that a lot of my family are interred here, and I spent many an early childhood visiting family graves, this historic resting place for absolutely thousands and thousands is very much worth a visit. Take some time to wander among the miles of paths and in and out of the incredible monuments... More

Went here on Sunday to show some teenagers who were traveling in our group some of the history of NI, I took them there as part of a "tour" I gave them around the city, they were engrossed in the whole tour and came away with a whole new education about the city It's a must visit 👌👌

Great to see how well this cemetery has been cleaned up. So educational and enlightening, I could have spent forever locked away in this little piece of history.

Must be the most wonderful cemetery in the world - I felt peace, I got shivers, I laughed and I cried. Never has a tour guide got that amount of emotion from me, ever !!! Uncensoredtours@gamil .com

I visited here as my parents are buried in Milltown. Since my last visit in 2012 Milltown has been given a great facelift and looks much tidier.
