Description

Over 1.5 million people are at rest in the moving Glasnevin Cemetery. Take a General History tour and travel deep into Dublin's past, 100 years after the Easter Rising. Or visit the graves of Irish heroes and learn the meaning of the cemetery's symbolism and architecture on the Dead Interesting tour.

Choose one of these hot, historical tours, add in a trip to the museum and it's clear that to leave Dublin without visiting Glasnevin would be a grave mistake. (Sorry).

Dead Interesting Tour

This brand new tour of Glasnevin Cemetery promises a grand overview of the cemetery's varied sculpture, symbolism and architecture. Learn which sporting heroes rest here, hear about the horticulture and natural life that thrives among the dead, and pass the vault that was pivotal in the Irish War of Independence!

Let your guide regale the tales of colorful souls who shaped Irish history. Ulster Covenant, The First World War, The Easter Rising and The War of Independence will all be unearthed and dissected via enjoyable historical anecdotes. Plus, see the graves of Irish heroes including Eamon DeValera, Michael Collins, Countess Markievicz and more.

Glasnevin Cemetery Museum

Step inside this award-winning museum; the world's first cemetery museum, no less. Exhibitions cover the cemetery history, funeral monuments and there's even an impressive touchscreen table containing 200 life stories of important Irish figures, spanning almost 200 years.

Bridget, our tour guide, gave a wonderfully interesting, engaging and informative trip around the lives of just some of those buried in Glasnevin. I think at over two hours she ran over but the thundery showers didn’t stop her!

Absolutely brilliant. Very informative. And very well done indeed Glasnevin. Thank Paddy for being an excellent guide.

The tour was excellent. Although I am a student of Irish history, Niall B, the tour guide gave the group a lot of hitherto, to me at least, new information and insights. The tour should be on the agenda of every Irish secondary school
