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.

My friend and I, both living in Dublin, and with a strong interest in Irish history, meant to add this attraction to our days out in Dublin for ages. You know when you live someplace and you spend all of your holiday time going to other places, sometimes you don't get to appreciate what's right on your doorstep. We thoroughly... More

Nile was our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic, great speaker, very knowledgeable, and really well-spoken. You might think what's so... More

My husband and I went on the Glasnevin tour today. Our guide, David, was absolutely fantastic. The one and a half hour tour flew by. David put a huge effort into his talk and was a very engaging, informative and witty guide. The whole experience was a fascinating and nuanced tour through Irish history. Highly recommended!

Decided to visit after living in Dublin for few years. Modern visitor centre with excellent tour guides who were funny, engaging and informative. Tour touches upon many key moments in Irish history via the individuals buried in Glasnevin. Pint in nearby Gravediggers pub afterwards rounded it off nicely.

I have been living in Dublin for a long time and never expected to come across a guided tour as good as this on my door step. This is an absolute MUST DO tour for all Dubliners and if it is good enough for the locals......... It may seem a bit strange to say that visiting a graveyard brought Dublin... More

You can consider a nice place a park, a pub any public place where the people are alive and they enjoy the life...but cemetery is a cemetery a death place, I can give 3 star rate because of the architecture and the sad statue, but if you are around go to some Pub...
