Take in an alternative view of the varied heritage that Ireland's largest cemetery holds and the history within its walls. You will learn of its sculpture, symbolism, architecture, art, sporting heroes, horticulture, natural life and much more.

Visit the graves and hear the stories of little known figures such as; Maria Higgins, a woman who died once yet was buried twice in Glasnevin. An Irish chaplain who witnessed the liberation of Bergen Belsen concentration camp. The last Irish winner of Wimbledon. The man who cut the ribbon and opened Sydney Harbour Bridge (when he wasn't meant to) and a vault that held secrets during the Irish War of Independence to name a few. A tour that is for those both well acquainted with the cemetery and those who have never visited before, the secret history of Ireland's most well known cemetery.

Your ticket includes entry into the exhibitions in Glasnevin Cemetery Museum. You will also receive €5 worth of credit to perform genealogy searches on the cemetery’s extensive records. You can choose to visit the museum before or after your tour.

We advise that you arrive at the museum reception at least 15 minutes before the start of your Tour.

Please note, tour duration is at least 90 minutes.
