Had to come along to say hello to one of my guitar heroes. Sad place but joy to see and pay homage. Don't understand how anyone can't give this grave 5 stars!

Having been to Cork on the weekend before Rory's passing, the visit to the grave side seemed a little somber. Taking a Cork taxis straight to the cemetery was the best option. The graveside is easily noticeable and you feel a strong sense of 'belonging'....More

I believe that who is rock fun, and live or to doing a trip in Cork, everybody need to go in this cemitery. I went to walking, around 1.30 hours from Cork City, but with friends the jorney becomes pleasant.

I didn't notice the opening hours...but if you put St. Oliver's Cemetery Cork into a search engine - it'll tell you. Most cemeteries are open in Ireland on a Sunday so family can visit loved ones.
