Welcome to Ireland's National Cemetery

    The stories of 1.5 million people are faithfully preserved here at Ireland's largest burial place, a beautifully restored Victorian cemetery featuring epic monuments to our past. From poets and presidents, singers and suffragettes, the ordinary and the extraordinary - the stories of those who shaped our nation's history are brought to life.

    We are delighted to offer our ever-popular tours and our brand new indoor visitor experience 'Extra-ordinary Lives' Monday to Sunday.
