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 normally would not go to a cemetery but this is more like an open air museum filled with so much history. If you like art, there are beautiful high Celtic crosses, if you like Gothic, you have those too. Sadly we didn't have enough time to wait for the tour but if we make it back, will put that... More

Our family arrived approx 15 minutes early and were greeted by the very pleasant staff who introduced us to our guide, provided a brief over view of the facilities and the tour. The tour started on time and was presented by a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. He was able to answer all questions and provided a great insight to... More

For 12 euros myself and my friend booked onto the 1916 Rebellion tour of the cemetery, which also gave us access to the museum portion. I have to say, this was the best value attraction we visited - although I still find it odd to call it an 'attraction' given that the friend I travelled with has family lain to... More

I would recommend doing the guided tour in Glasnevin. We had a very knowledgeable and theatrical guide. We thought that there may be a lot of walking as the place is so big but because the guide was so entertaining it didn't feel too much. The reenactment of Pearse's oration at the grave of O'Donovan Rossa was particularly good. There... More

My husband and I have been planning to visit Glasnevin for quite some time and in this centenary year of the 1916 rising were fortunate enough to book the 1916 Tour on Tuesday 23 August 2016 and to say we really enjoyed it is an understatement. Our tour guide Grainne was excellent she really knew her stuff and delivered the... More

This is my second visit to glasnevin cemetery and every time it is so lovely and peaceful. Never have done a tour due to having my dad with us and he is a wee bit slower at walking so we just go around by ourselves

I went to the cemetery museum but didn't go on the tour as I only had limited time. I learnt a lot about some of the history in Dublin and found the museum very interesting. The Cemetery itself is huge and as Cemetery's go it is quite nice to walk around and right next to the Botanic gardens which are... More

Reflection of many lives buried there , all with a history. I recommend the guided tour as the tour guide shows you the famous graves and the graves of those whose lives are just as important but had a tragic end. Every time I visit I learn something new about the great city of Dublin and its people.

The tour of Glasnevin Cemetery was fantastic. It is a true who's who of Irish history. We bought the DVD "One Million Dubliners" .....very moving. We will be back again.
