    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.

    While our historic tours and visitor centre remain temporarily closed, we invite curious minds of all ages to learn more online, enjoy the summer beauty of our gardens, or discover the story of your own family through our burial archive and genealogy service. 

    We look forward to welcoming you back to Experience Glasnevin soon.
