    Join an expert tour guide on a fascinating journey through the hidden depths of Glasnevin Cemetery on our new Extra-ordinary Lives Tour. This tour will take place each Saturday and Sunday (and Bank Holiday Mondays) @ 1pm.

    This ticket includes the Experience Glasnevin Exhibition, and you can also choose to include the O'Connell Tower Climb with your visit.

    The stories of a nation are held within the walls of Glasnevin Cemetery. Established in 1832 as a burial place for all people, this unique garden cemetery grew from humble origins to become Ireland’s largest and most storied cemetery. 

    Stroll along beautiful tree-lined paths and hear stories of both the ordinary and the extra-ordinary. This includes visits to the resting place of renowned writer Brendan Behan, poet and novelist Rosa Mulholland, as well as an insight into the earliest history of Glasnevin with our first burial, young Michael Carey in February 1832.

    With 1.5 million people buried in Glasnevin, every plot has a story.
