Resting Place of the Greatest
Jul 2018 • Couples
A must for all Rory fans. His grave stone is very distinctive and fairly easy to find. It was an honour to see where the worlds greatest guitarist is now at rest. Free parking.

Must do if your a Rory fan
Jun 2018 • Couples
Very nice and peaceful cemetery just outside Cork City. it wasn't difficult to find Rory's grave. The grave is nicely kept with remembrances from all over the world. The cemetery is not hard to get to. Parking is ample and the cemetery was not crowded.

Another tick in the Rory box.

After visiting the Roryfest in Ballyshannon and the place of his birth, we felt it appropriate to visit the great man's grave and pay our respects.
The cemetery is very well kept and Rory's grave is easy to find.
Some nice pictures and messages from Dutch Rory fans and loads of plectrums.
Probably only suitable for Rory Gallagher fans of a certain age !
Well worth the visit.

If you are a Rory Gallagher fan - and I have been since about 1966 - this is a must visit - a pilgrimage in fact. It didn't disappoint.

I was in Cork for 5 days to take in as many Rory places as i could fit in so this was a must. Sat at Rorys resting place head phones on listening to The great mans music. Back in cork in March and will visit again.

Place of Annual pilgrimage

Not to say a prayer at the grave of one of the finest Irish blues guitarists the world has ever seen would be churlish.Whatever the weather the rays of the sun will always shine over Rory.He left the world his wondrous music and for that we should all be grateful and pay our respects.

My mother is buried beside Rory Gallagher so it would be hard to miss his grave. He was a very close neighbour of ours when I was growing up

Had to come along to say hello to one of my guitar heroes. Sad place but joy to see and pay homage.

Don't understand how anyone can't give this grave 5 stars!
