Absolutely first rate archives for tracing relatives buried there
Have to say I think its a little expensive at €8 online to view all interments in a single grave

The tours of the Cemetary are conducted by very knowledgeable guides and worth doing
Wonderful restoration work going on

Cemetries are my thing, and Glasnevin is my favourite.

The museum is quite interesting & the tour is fabulous. I would highly recommend to locals & tourists alike.

If you havent been, shame on you!

Very good in every aspect. Its compact museum is modern and has a balanced-quirky-yet-respectful way of dealing with death and burial traditions. Not depressing or heavy at all. I particularly enjoyed the wall displaying various objects that used to belong to people buried there, I found it very moving. If you're looking to know more about Daniel O'Connell there is a whole ground of the museum about him. Very friendly staff and nice café, too. Took a very informative guided tour with Niall through the cemetery, where he showed us headstones of important political and artistic figures buried there, such as Michael Collins, Brendan Behan, Daniel O'Connell and many others. The cemetery itself is very beautiful and huge. Well worth the ticket price.

I loved the tour and the museum..It is a really different type of tourism...You get to walk through Irish History and Great Irish Men...Also a must if you think you have relatives that could be buried there..You can look up the records...Highly recommended if you are in Dublin and have spare couple of hours.
