Although a cemetery is not a very cheerful tourist attraction, it is well worth visiting from historical point of view. The size of the cemetery is impressive. There are many memorials for the republican volunteers among which the grave of Bobby Sands and several other hungerstrikers that died in 1981.

This cemetery does not just cover the republican plots, it is very informative and well worth a visit along with the City Cemetery guided tour.
