Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum are both the guardians and storytellers for over 1.5 million people. From the ordinary to the truly extraordinary, these people helped shape the Ireland of today. We want to share their stories and times with you through tours of the cemetery, a visit to the museum or through a genealogy search for your family history.

We are a not-for-profit organisation and all proceeds are used to sustain and improve our cemeteries to ensure they are places of beauty, interest and intrigue.

"The founders of a new colony, whatever Utopia of human virtue and happiness they might originally project, have invariably recognized it among their earliest practical necessities to allot a portion of the virgin soil as a cemetery, and another portion as the site of a prison." - Nathaniel Hawthorn (and woe to the native inhabitants of the "new colony").

Amazing trip - made especially interesting by tour guide Grainne - who even sang a verse of 'Grace' at the grave of Joseph Mary Plunkett - so much history and amenities and layout overall were excellent - highly recommended.

Ideal for a walk all by yourself. Of course, families are welcome too, but if you have the opportunity of going alone, please do it. Prepare your body and mind to have deep thoughts.

It may seem a bit odd to be reviewing a visit to a cemetery. But, a visit to Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin is well worth it. We opted to to take the tour and I am so glad that we did. We were lucky to have John as our guide. He gave wonderful anecdotal stories about those patriots who died... More

The walking tour gives history of cemetery and the many notable persons buried here that were instrumental to Dublin's and Irish history. Cemetery has unique stone work that reflects art of different periods. Glasnevin is beautifully maintained. Tour is an easy walk and guide is... More

I took the cemetery tour on this year's visit, having previously simply walked much of the amazing cemetery. Even on a rainy day such as I experienced, the tour is worth every minute. There is much history to be learned and the whole place is amazing.

We waited and we waited for the number 40 bus which just didn't appear so we set out to walk thinking that we could pick up the bus en route! We didn't take the guided tour but just wandered through the graveyard - it was very easy to pick out the graves of those we came to visit. Certainly a... More
