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.

Well worth a visit and the extra for a guided tour. The tour guides are so knowledgeable they can add so much to the experience. There is an on-site florist should you wish to purchase flowers, a very pleasant café and the obligatory gift shop. Much work has been undertaken recently to renovate the cemetery which had previously been allowed... More

We visited Glasnevin Cemetary late in the day so we didn't have time to tour with a guide. We hoped we could purchase a pamphlet that would provide us with a walking tour but the only brochure available identified the grave sites of a few luminaries from Irish history and little else. The Interpretive Center has interesting displays and the... More

Paid to join a tour today. Well worth the money, the guide was helpful and very knowledgeable. It was very interesting, although our tour nearly lasted 2hrs when we only expected it to last 1hr 30mins so be careful if you plan events afterwards, this is as they must give priority to funerals when they go past which I fully...

I'm from Dublin and I'm interested in history so, granted, I was always going to enjoy this tour but I still can't emphasise how good it is. If you're visiting Ireland and you have any interest at all in our history or culture, this is a must see. The weather could spoil the day though.

I chose this tour to hear some of the fascinating stories of well known Dubliners and others who are buried here. This cemetery reflects the love and appreciation the Irish have for their forebears. Most on the tour were Irish from other Counties and 2 or 3 of us from overseas. "Grace" made the history come alive with detail and... More

12.30 tour (think Alan was guide) he had an incredible amount of knowledge and delivered it well. At 2.30 watched re-enactment over grave and can understand how this would have stirred the rebels

Michael Collins is buried here, so that alone is a reason to visit. Very historical and moving. Very well-maintained, peaceful, worth stopping and remembering many historical people interred there.
