Plan Your Visit

    The well-being of our staff and visitors is our priority and, in line with government guidance, we have temporarily suspended our on-site tours and workshops. We will have further updates about reopening, booking tickets and what's happening at Glasnevin soon. Some visitor services are open, see here for details. Please explore our online educational resources and activities, and we look forward to welcoming you here again soon.
