We didn’t really know what to expect when we visited the cemetery, and helpfully when we arrived a tour was just starting so we were tagged into that. The tour was super, full of interesting facts and humour to keep us all onboard the whole...More

Excellent tour and learnt heaps about the interns. Friend and foe, famous and infamous are mingled throughout. The Padraig Pearce speech delivered in full military uniform and volume was very moving and motivating, as it was in 1915. Dan O’Connell’s crypt was becoming of the...More

Excellent tour and excellent value at 13 euros... Have returned home seeking further research... Wrap up warm in the colder weather... 2.80 euros from O'Connell street on bus, one way, and drops you right outside.

I'd say not. The tour is quite long and probably not very interesting for the average 10 year old. Perhaps the shop staff at Glasnevin could suggest some interesting headstones to visit instead and you could make your own... More
