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.

It's fascinating to walk around reading the gravestones in the cemetery. So many stories and so much history. Of note is a rather desolate area towards the Boglands area where it's said, babies born out of wedlock were buried. Little white crosses are scattered about identifying the resting places of some of these.

Decided to make a visit to milltown and had a quite walk around. It was amazing to remember those who had passed that I have know or forgotten due to being young at the time. There is so much history in this place aswell as sadness due to the cover up of those babies who ended up testing in peace... More

We always visit cemeteries on our travels, this place was so interesting but scary as there was a big republican funeral taking place, didn't feel comfortable so make sure the place is clear before you visit, the English are not too popular in these parts.

My family are buried in Milltown, I have to praise whoever has got their act together and cleaned the walkways and encouraged families to clean and update their graves, the place looks amazing compared to what it was like, so thanks for the good work and please do keep at it.

Made a return visit to the city to join in the celebration of the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising. A visit to Milltown must for any Republican visiting Belfast & in particular the Republican plot

It's been a long time since 1988 when mourners at a Republican Funeral fell victim to Loyalist gunman Michael Stone when they where at their most vulnerable. When you step foot onto the Republican Plot today and stare down over the cemetery it still gives you shivers to your spine. As I told the story to my girlfriend who was... More

Historically important not least for the republican plots, the hunger strikers plot and assorted IRA/INLA graves but also the final resting place of Gerry Conlon, Frank Carson and many other northern Irish figures.
