Very well organised tour of Glasnevin Cemetery lasting over 2 hours. The tour guide Brigid was very knowledgable & engaging. The highlight at the end was Michael Collins grave. The cafe is lovely for tea or coffee. Easy parking across the road €2.

Paddy's tour breathed new life into the interesting lives found in this cemetery. His knowledge, enthusiasm and his inclusivity made all the difference -- he was also able to make us Canadians feel welcome. Would recommend to anyone looking for local history in Dublin!
