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.

We went to see just one grave Michael Collins, it was free to do that and wander around the cemetery. There is a cost to do the museum and tour they offer.

I went on a great walking tour of the cemetery with my 85 yr old mum. It had a good pace but not too fast for her. Lots of Irish history... a great place to visit..

If you are not into Irish history, don't go. It's location is nice and the hop on hop off buss stops here, but there is not much to see. The tours around the place can be awesome.

Visited Glasnevin earlier this week. The museum was small, but very interesting. The tour of the cemetery was absolutely excellent. Our guide (Bridget) had so many tales to tell about important figures in Irish history buried there. Great pint in The Gravediggers pub to finish up with.
