Glasnevin Cemetery Museum reviews
We visited Glasnevin yesterday using the number 40 bus from Parnell Square- no tour buses running up thee at the present. Always wanted to visit and this time we did. Astounding place, very tranquil..... more »
Unfortunately the museum is currently closed. As much of a pity as it is, the cemetery itself is very much still a visit, especially if like me you enjoy exploring cemeteries and reading... more »
A very interesting your. The tour guide, Bridget Sheerin has a wealth of knowledge & is very helpful & kind. It was an emotional visit knowing that thousands of people are buried there. The Cemetery is kept immaculate & it is a credit to Glasnevin Cemetery staff. The Museum is very informative & very well laid out. The tower is a tough climb but the view from the top is worth climbing every one of the 198 steps.The food in the Cafe is delicious. I would highly recommend a visit to Glasnevin Cemetery. 🐞🐞
The 2:30 tour and re-enactment of the Padraig Pierce speech is amazing. We have been 4 or 5 times and bring friends along when people visit. Try visiting the botanic gardens (there's a gate between the two). Finish up with tapas in the Gravediggers and a pint of Guinness. Perfect day out for those visiting dublin. Bridget is also an excellent tour guide on the cemetery tour.
