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 on a very sunny day which was good as the tour is all outdoors. We parked on the street across from the Cemetery. We're locals and knew a lot of the Irish history already but our tour guide had some interesting lesser knowns facts and was very good at explaining things to the visitors in our tour. There...

Really worth a visit if you are interested in historical names that shaped Ireland., Daniel OConnell, Parnell etc. There are excellent tour guides and a good cafe so it makes a very pleasant day out especially on a dry day. Next door to the Botanic gardens too.

The museum is a little dull, but the walking tour of the cemetery is fascinating, everyone should do it. You don't have to be a history buff to enjoy it. I have visited many times, with my friends, with young chlldren and with teenagers.

Very interesting tour. Our tour guide was also excellent. He clearly had a great depth of knowledge of the history of the cemetery and those buried there and also had plenty of funny anecdotes.

The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. You get to see parts of the cemetery that you normally wouldn't.
