Tours & Highlights

    The well-being of our staff and visitors is our priority and, in line with government guidance on Covid-19, we have temporarily suspended our on-site tours and workshops. Please explore our online educational resources and activities, and we look forward to welcoming you here again soon.

    Glasnevin Cemetery has been at the heart of some of the key moments and events in modern Irish History. Many of the iconic figures from that history are buried here: Daniel O'Connell, Michael Collins, Eamon de Valera, and Countess Markievicz to name just a few.

    Glasnevin is also the final resting place of almost 1.5 million people you will not have heard of; but behind every name, and beneath every headstone, there is the story of a life lived, of a unique individual’s experiences, joys and sorrows.

    Glasnevin is now a significant destination for visitors, tourists and scholars who wish to learn more of the people and events which shaped the Ireland of today. It is a place of extraordinary social, cultural and historical significance that has earned it the title Ireland’s National Cemetery.
