Glasnevin Cemetery

23/06/2020

Since 1828, more than 1.5 million people have been interred in Glasnevin - rich and famous, paupers and politicians, artists, warriors and heroes, all resting side by side in this renowned Victorian Garden Cemetery. Established by Daniel O’Connell as a place where people of “all religions and none” could bury their dead with dignity; the cemetery has grown to become a national monument and is a vital part of the Irish Heritage story.

Key to Glasnevin’s success is the popularity of the tour guides whose enthusiasm is compelling. Brimming with banter and charm each tour guide is passionate about sharing their love of heritage and history. There is inspiration around every corner and at every grave, and with one and a half million stories buried in Glasnevin, there’s no shortage of tales to tell.

Interactive exhibitions, dramatic re-enactments and daily walking tours visiting many of the renowned figures that shaped Ireland including Charles Stewart Parnell, Roger Casement, Eamon De Valera, Michael Collins, Constance Markievicz, Brendan Behan, Luke Kelly and Daniel O'Connell. An unique opportunity to gain an understanding of Ireland's complex and fascinating history. Visit inside Daniel O'Connell's Celtic Romantic designed Crypt and iconic tower, the tallest in Ireland, forms part of the tour.
