“very interesting”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We went to Dublin for a weekend away in September 2013. Following reviews of the cemetery I booked tickets online, not been Irish or having much in the way of knowledge of some of the people hurried there I was slightly worried however it was excellent. The guide was very informative and I was able to look up the history in the museum to satisfy my curiosity. Well worth a visit.

“Can't say enough positive things about this tour!! MUST do!!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Our tour was on a cold, windy day that threatened torrential downpour at an moment. It was a physically miserable condition outside. Our tour guide was so engaging, informative, and entertaining, that our whole tour group soon forgot all about being cold and miserable. The next hour of the tour went by so fast that we hardly realized that it had been that long. Any guide that is good enough to make you forget you can't feel your nose or your toes and engage you well enough in the tour that you actually remember the history told to you, is a fantastic one indeed!!! In my opinion, this is a MUST do tour while in the area!!

“Not often a visit to a cemetary ranks up there”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Our visit and tour of the cemetary was led by the historian who provides us wath rich detail of the occupants over the years. A fabulous photo opportunity for those who like old monuments and a very interesting way to spend the afternoon.

“Visit to cemetery only”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Didn't have time to visit the museum as we were on our way to Croke Park for a stadium tour but the Cemetery was worth a visit and the staff kindly provided us with a map so we could locate the headstones. Would have liked to have nipped in to The Gravediggers aka Kavanaghs for a pint of Guinness - maybe next time.

An interesting place to visit. We went on the tour which included the graves- and stories- of many famous Irish heroes. The only down side to me was that you didn't actually move much around the cemetery as the graves were all in the same place.
