What an excellent tour, you are not only shown the resting places of famous Dubliners but also given a History lesson. Our tour guide, Bridget, was super knowledgeable and super passionate about her City & it's past. I would thoroughly recommend this experience. Oh, there's also the museum to visit as part of the fee,

I just did the free walk through of the cemetery and loved it. Next time I will do the tour. Lots of history in the cemetery, just like in Ireland.

My advice is to take a guided tour through this incredible cemetery which is just filled with historical facts, very interesting crypts, stones, memorials, etc. You really learn so much through your tour guide.

So much history in one place, went looking for the 4 Victoria Cross awardees buried in the Cemetery, found so much more. Found 21 paving stones to people from Ireland awarded the VC in the Great War (more are been placed all the time). The history of Ireland can be found in this one place, many of Ireland's leading men... More

Be sure to take a guided tour. It is so worth it. You get way more history and information. We were late that day as a group so had no time to spend in the actual museum/shop. The monuments are incredible!

The only cemetery tour I have ever had which had me giggling like a school kid. Professionally delivered with more than a hint of Irish humour. Loved every minute of it including all historical information. Recommended.

Very informative and interesting tour of this massive cemetery next to Botanical gardens. Our young local guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining about Irish history all entwined with those buried here. We should have done some research beforehand so we could keep up with all the historical stories!

On what was a very cold day we spent a very informative afternoon at the cemetery. Bridget was our tour guide & full of great stories & information. The cold didn't seem to faze her as she talked to us about some significant graves & the people buried there. Only browsed quickly through the museum as we ran out of... More

This burial ground goes back to the nineteenth century if not further and is full of interesting monuments and burial plots. My own favourite feature is the chapel which is now adapted for pre - crematorium services but is sometimes used for memorial masses and the like also. This place should be on everyone's bucket list!

The place is beautiful. The guide was great and he told a lot of interesting stories. Nice museum. But it you don't know Irish history in advance its a bit difficult to follow all stories
