Situated in North Co Dublin, The Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum is a relaxed attraction for visitors eager to learn more about Dublin’s distinguished heritage.

The cemetery itself is Ireland’s largest non-denominational burial site with roughly 1.5 million graves. Having opened in 1832, and including prominent Irish figures such as its founder Daniel O’Connell, Charles Stewart Parnell and Frank Duff. The cemetery is also one of the few that allowed the burial of stillborn babies in its consecrated Angels Plot.

There are guided walking tours every day at 11.30 and 2.30 run by Shane MacThomias that show visitors the changing styles of monuments over the last 200 years as well as the high walls with guarded watch-towers, built to deter grave robbers in the 18th and 19th centuries. There are also memorials to the 208 Irish service personnel that were buried here during the two world wars.

The museum itself holds interactive exhibitions that offer a respectful look at the political and historical developments of Ireland through the lives of the people buried in the cemetery, as well as a gift shop and café. There is also the opportunity to browse the cemetery’s extensive genealogical records.

The Glasnevin Trust Museum gives visitors a dignified and fascinating insight into some of the lives that shaped today’s Ireland, and should not be missed by any visitors with a taste for history and heritage.
