“Don't miss this one”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Wow. The history of modern Ireland is all here - heroes & villains, victims of cholera and political assassination, the mighty and the ordinary. Our very articulate guide Kathy was well versed in the history of the cemetery and some of the tombstone and crypts are works of art. We used the "Hop On, Hop Off" buses (get on the Blue Route - the bus drivers will explain it all, it's very simple) to get there and back to our lodgings. As my wife and I have Irish ancerstory, part of the fun was looking at the gravestones in the hope of spying the family name. We stayed for just over 1.5 hours, however could easily have spent much more time there.

“Cemetery good. Cafe day light robbery”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

I found the cemetery wonderful. But the cafe attached to its is very poor. Extremely over priced and also check your receipt. Got double charged twice.
