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.

I finally visited Glasnevin with a mixed family group (young children, teenagers and adults) in November 2016, after wishing to visit it for many years upon hearing other reviews. Our guided tour certainly did not disappoint. Our host was very informative as he led us on a trail through the sites of note in this vast graveyard, including Daniel O'Connell's... More

Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, and really knew his stuff. So interesting, hard to take in all the information and dates, but it is really worth going to do! Especially timely given the fact that we have just celebrated 100 years of Irish independence. Lots of parking nearby, nice little gift shop and you can look up your ancestors... More

We took a wonderful and informative tour of the Glasnevin Cemetery. Our guides were very knowledgeable, and very captivating speakers. The weather was a bit cold, so I would suggest dressing weather appropriate for this tour since the entirety takes place outside. I enjoyed learning more about the history of Dublin and the Republic. It was very interesting, and the... More

My family took the tour (with 3 adult children from Canada) and it was well worth it. The cemetery alone is worth seeing (over 1.5 million people buried) but the tour explains many of the main graves. Also, we got to go into the main Micheal Collins memorial site. Only draw back, almost the entire focus was people from the... More

On a rainy and cold day I took the guided tour, but despite the weather I really enjoyed it! We visited a few graves of important people in Irish history (mostly involved somehow in the Easter rising) and our guide told us the story about this person and Irish history in general. She was very involved and gave us lots... More

We did the 90 minutes general tour of the cemetery. The guide did a fantastic job! Not only did she talk about the famous dead buried there but she made history come alive for all those of us foreigners who don't know much about Irish history. Throughout the whole tour I always had the impression that every single person being... More

Glasnevin Cemetery has the whos-who of Irish History buried there. The tour is great and is definitely one of the top ten tourist attractions I would recommend in Dublin.

I don't think a visit here would be complete without one of the fabulous walking tours offered. To start, there was a reenactment of a famous speech given there which was very well done. As someone with little incoming knowledge of Irish history, particularly that of the last 100 years, our guide did a great job of giving context for... More
