Absolutely fantastic tour, only the 4 of us due to a being a dull day in December but the tour guide Grainne I believe was lovely, very passionate about the history of the tour and cemetary. Very knowledgeable and eager to tailor the tour to our needs checking our interests and home locality. Thoroughly enjoyed this and would very highly recommend. A really eye opener, of the history of Ireland and its people. The 2.30pm tour includes a re-enactment of a famous speech - the actor was briliant. History buffs and the interested would be advised to attend. Also from O'Connell St in the Northside of Dublin right by the GPO several buses run with frequency to and from 40, 41 and 140 I beleive so easiy to get to and from.
Tour was very interesting a great amount of history, tour guide was very informative a great way to get a feel for 1916 years of Ireland !!
Our tour lasted two hours. We were guided around to the graves of many of Ireland's modern leaders. The walk was a lesson in the last 150 years of Irish history. The guide was great. FYI, I had made an inquiry with the cemetery about the need of getting tickets in advance. I was told to get my tickets in advance. Glad I did.
Absolutely fabulous tour. Our guide John? was a wealth of knowledge and entertaining. It was one of the best tours we have ever booked.
Highlight of our trip. Tour guide, Geraldine was brilliant, informative and interesting. Lasts over an hour . Cafe and shop also worth visiting.
Loved this. Guide was so knowledgable and passionate about the history of Dublin and Ireland. Go there!
My advice is fo a city historical tour first so you know the background of some of the famous people buried here.Took the local bus to get here. This was a nice way to see the other side of the city.
Do this your if you love history and learning new facts.
Loved this tour my favourite tour of all lots and lots of history and info mind boggling at times but very entertaining learnt so much the great weather made it even better
This cemetery is just spectacular! There is so much history in one place and the tour guide knew everything there was to know about it all!
We booked the tour, having seen previous reviews, but were still a little unsure. After all, how interesting can a tour around a cemetry be? So, if you're reading this and are a little unsure, my advice is, just book it or you will be missing out on a great tour. We caught the bus from O'Connell St, very easy. Arrived a little early and so time for a cup of tea in the cafe and a look around the museum. Our tour started promptly and was fascinating from beginning to end, jammed with information on the history of Ireland and some of the people who helped to shape it. Our guide was excellent, knew his stuff inside out and his delivery was clear and captivating. If you have even a remote interest in the history of Ireland, this is one not to be missed.
