    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 brand new indoor visitor experience 'Extra-ordinary Lives' Monday to Sunday. 

    Glasnevin Cemetery plays a central role in James Joyce's Ulysses - See the Bloomsday Re-enactment here.

    We look forward to welcoming you to Experience Glasnevin – Ireland’s National Cemetery.
