Make your way to Glasnevin Cemetery, located just 1.6 miles (2.5 km) from the Dublin city center, and meet a guide for the 1pm start time.

As you walk the grassy paths between the tombs, learn the basics of Glasnevin Cemetery history, starting in the years when Irish Catholics had no place to bury their dead with Catholic rites. Find out how Glasnevin Cemetery became a part of Irish heritage—it’s the setting for a key scene in James Joyce’s Ulysses and appears in a poem by Idris Davies—and about the most famous Irish people who are buried here.

Visit the graves of some little-known but fascinating figures, including Maria Higgins, who was buried twice in Glasnevin, an Irish chaplain who saw the liberation of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, the most recent Irish winner of Wimbledon, and more. Throughout the tour, the guide will strike a careful balance of passion, intrigue, and respect for one of Ireland’s truly historic places. This 1.5-hour walking tour of Glasnevin Cemetery concludes at the original departure point.

This place is amazing! Well worth the cost and energy expended to walk around this cemetery and here the stories of some of the people buried there. The museum is very interesting and the cafe had a good breakfast at a reasonable cost.
