“Extraordinary history lesson, amazing site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

There is so much history here. And all the while you are on tour and inspecting the grounds, "visiting" with those from ages past, you get a feel of the importance of such a place to Ireland and the Irish, here and abroad. I was the only non-native Irish person on the tour that day, and the rain poured down the whole time.

“Full of History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Spent a couple hours walking around the cemetery and looked at all the graves of great Irish patriots. Loved seeing the grave of Charles Stewart Parnell as I was obsessed with him, his politics and affair with Kitty O'Shea. Read about him in high school and was honored I could visit his grave. Also, went to the house in Wicklow. Very well kept cemetery and full of history.
