I booked a tour of Glasnevin Cemetery over a year ago. I live near by and have always wanted to do it but i think the tour was always during the day once a week. Now it's so popular I believe it's on every day. Definately worth doing this Tour and I would do it again. It's very interesting and the Guides are passionate in their story telling. I learned about those who fought and died for Ireland who were buried here and to be there takes you back in time as our tour guide goes into the history of the various famous and not so famous graves. We went down into the Crypt of Daniel O'ConnellI and there were about 5 other coffins in at the back to the left who were related to him. Near the end of the Tour it's fascinating and funny when you get within reach of the Grave Diggers Pub and that has a different story to tell to add to the tales of the Cemetery. I won't tell you that bit you need to take the tour but it's worth it. It's a must for every Irish Citizen for sure, I found out facts about History I must have been asleep in school for!! I appreciated History more now! There is a beautiful Museum near the gate and you can trace back to your roots and the Tower Cafe.
